List from Austrian Heritage Collection - Accessing the List (and What's in it) #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

A list is linked >from the website of the Center of Jewish History, and
includes a long list of names, including a person I suspect is a
relative:

http://search.cjh.org/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=CJH_ALEPH000203691&;context=L&vid=lbi&lang=en_US&search_scope=LBI&adaptor=Local%20Search%20Engine&tab=default_tab&query=any,contains,WOLFSTHAL&sortby=rank&offset=0

An alternative way to see the list is by going to the website of
Center of Jewish History (http://search.cjh.org) and typing
CJH_ALEPH000203691 in the search box.

I am interested in understanding the source/purpose of the list, and
whether it is associated with more content on the listed individuals
(and where).

Thank you, Yaron Wolfsthal, Israel (yaron.wolfsthal@gmail.com)

Re: Brick Wall Inquiry: Ben Greenberg ship manifest abt 1902 #general

Raina Accardi <raina.accardi@...>
 

Brick Wall: Ben Greenberg, seeking ship manifest, second attempt

According to Ben's naturalization documents, he arrived 15 Mar 1902 on the
St. Louis, >from Southampton to NY. However, according to Ancestry the St.
Louis did not sail into NY then. There is a record for the next year - 15
Mar 1903. On that manifest I did find an entry for a Berl [?]stein (line
22, page 75), a locksmith. However, Ben was never known to work as a
locksmith. The relative he was going to join is unknown to me. Ben lived
in Pyatigory, Russia (now Ukraine), and his given name there was Berko or
Berl.

I found this person who could be your ancestor. He may have changed his last name to Greenberg after arrival. More research into this person may help confirm that he is your ancestor.

Name Berl Ochrengoren (Ochsengoren or Oehsengoren)
Arrival Date 24 Feb 1902
Birth Date 1878
Age 24
Gender Male
Ethnicity/ Nationality Russian
Port of Departure Southampton, England
Port of Arrival New York, New York
Ship Name St Louis
line 11 group D

is a tailor, FIL paid passage, going to FIL Elie Awich (hard to read) 49 Jefferson St NY

he was detained for further investigation on (Ancestry viewer) page 298 number 15 where you can see another spelling of his name and his father in laws name Elias Avoith (?)

I found this by searching for Beryl - exact and sounds like, born within 5 yrs of 1879, departing Southampton - exact, arriving 1902 - exact, key word: saint louis. There were about 11 Berls to look through. You may want to look at each one to see if anything rings true for you based on your knowledge of his friends and family. I went by his occupation and vitals. I also think his surname is such that he may have decided to change it.

JewishGen's NY Genealogy Course starts June 14 #ukraine

Nancy Siegel
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

For questions, please email the instructor: Phyllis Kramer,
JewishGen's VP of Education, born and bred in NYC; she will lead you
through it.
