Hop, Chane from Kovno #lithuania

illona <ijhope@...>
 

I have been told by my Father-in-law that his father and brothers all came
to South Africa >from Kovno gubernia. The only sister when to U.S.A. and
nothing further was heard >from her.

I have found the following entry through the ellis Island record centre and
I am hoping that someone will recognise her or know family members.

"Chane (Chana?) Hop, >from Kovno, Russia, arrived in the U.S.A. 30th June
1911, aged 19 years and was single. She arrived on the ship "Mauretania"
from Liverpool, England."
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Dear LitvakSIG Digest subscribers:

Following our two messages yesterday warning of the BadTrans 32 virus which can appear as an apparent reply to a message one has sent, the Digest received a number of messages on this subject.

We thank you all for confirming that the virus is real, and emphasizing the need for everyone to have up to date virus protection on their computers.

Viriuses are most commonly transmitted through attachments to e-mail, but we have been told that on occasion they can also be transmitted in html language.

In order to strengthen even further our security against viruses, the
LitvakSIG Digest, effective immediately, will only accept messages sent
in plain text.

We will automatically reject any messages sent in any other form, including those sent >from AOL version 6.0 (which automatically converts to html), or messages that include material copied >from a website directly into the message, etc., which also converts the message by the time it reaches us.

Please make sure your e-mail program is sent for plain text. Discuss this with your ISP if you have problems.

This is for everyone's protection.

Thank you,

The W32 Badtrans13312@mm is being spread by many unsuspecting
JewishGenners as well as others who use the internet. The virus replies to
all unread stored mail on one's computer and sends itself in messages
addressed to the person who posted the original message. It uses any one
of a number of file extensions as follows:

If you have gotten messages appearing to be >from JewishGenners or familiar
names >from other lists to which you subscribe, and especially if you get
individual mail >from any mailing lists you may be tricked into thinking you
are getting a response to a message you posted. Let us emphasize this is
not just happening with JewishGen mailing lists, it is happening with
others as well.

If you see any of the above file extensions, delete the message >from your
computer immediately. If you think you are already infected the first
question to ask yourself is:

Why in this day and age am I running a computer without the most up to date
virus protection program? <grin>

And then you might want to visit the following site to insure a clean system.

Instructions for removal are at
http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.badtrans.13312@mm.html

Again, please be cautious in any e-mail you open and be sure that the very
next thing you do is protect yourself >from virus infections which are
running rampant throughout internet mailing lists.

Re: SAGER #southafrica

Regarding the Sager family, I have information >from two different sources:

I received some information last year >from Warren Mandelbaum, regarding his
Treisman family. According to him, Michelle Treisman married Bernard Sager
from Johannesburg and they now live in Australia.
from another source, there was also a Joseph Manie Sager, born 1904, from
Johannesburg, who was the son of Hyman and Esther Sager.

Also, in regard to Sussman, I have the following:

There was a Philip Sussman, who came to SA in 1893 and lived in Kimberley.

Also, a Philip Sussman, who was born in Latvia in 1896, the son of Ben and
Blume Sussman, who lived in Bloemfontein.

There was a Jack Sussman, born in Taurage, 1904, son of Woolfe and Cirle
Sussman, who lived in Kimberley.

I have no further info on any of these.

Re: Delaware landing #general

Steven Schwartz <SSchwartz@...>
 

Judith, she probably was processed and admitted in Philadelphia. However,
there was a medical/quarantine station at Lewes Beach in the State of
Delaware for many years. She probably was detained there for only a short
time before it was determined that she was healthy. Otherwise, she likely
would have been returned to her country of origin. I do not think Delaware
ever had a facility for processing and admitting incoming immigrants.

One of my grandmothers landed in Delaware. She told me that her uncle
was a judge so she avoided Ellis Island.....

Sron for Aron strikes me as a simple typo, since A & S are next to each
other on the keyboard - suggesting the proof reading of the database might
have been better.

Leil for Leib, Weinhaul for Weintraub suggests to me that the persons
doing the data input for EIDB were not particularly familiar with Jewish
names...
