I agree Glenda  but in actuality it is the not ready for prime time system that should still be in beta that doesn’t do that for us. It is pure frustration.

further down the list is Marcus Eder who is a US citizen, also going to 396 Hastings.

Re: Passenger arrival records

bernerfolk
 

Found the US manifest (below).  When immigrants arrived in Canada for transit to the US they went through the standard process conducted by US immigration agents as they would have if they'd arrived at Ellis Island.  They were issued admittance passes which they then had to present on the train to their US destination. 

Note that the two  families listed above Chawe; Sara Schlissel & ch, and Ester Wiesenfeld & ch, are all from Tarnobrzeg and all going to their husbands at the same address, 340 Hastings.  Pretty good bet these are relatives.

Re: Passenger arrival records

Here's a link to Chawe, Hersch, and Chaim leaving Liverpool for Quebec.  There should be a border crossing document into the US but I haven't found it yet, those records and indexes are spotty.

Sorry if you don't have easy access to Ancestry, I don't see the record on FS...they may not have the outbound manifests.

Re: Liski, Kolomea

Renee Steinig
 

Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator (https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/), which lists all towns located in the Austrian crown land of Galician in 1900, includes a Liski near Kolomea (now Kolomyya).

It's probably the town that the JewishGen Gazetteer (https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp) shows as Leski, Ukraine -- about 8 miles north of Kolomyya. On GoogleMaps, the spelling is Lisky.

The JewishGen distance is "as the crow flies." By car it's at least 13 miles, depending on the route.

Re: Passenger arrival records

I believe I may have found the Shlissel family on Ancestry's Canadian Border Crossings.  The ship is the Tunisian, arriving Quebec  on May 19, 1900. 
Destination is Pincus Shlissel 340 Hastings St. Detroit. There are two other families on the same manifest going to that same address.

Hi Ellen,  Thank you for taking to trouble to reply. I've made a note of The "Great Purge" for my reading. 
My mother definitely believed that Siberia was the end for her parents and they were never heard of again. I hadn't realised myself until recently that some survived Siberia or escaped.

Mr. Ives,

You said it all so well!

I find it amusing that your one typo -- I didn't go looking, but it just jumped out at me -- is genealogy-related.  You suggest that a composer check the "spelling, punctuation, and the gramma ...".   Shouldn't Gramma be capitalized?  And why leave out Grandpa?

:).

Now if people will only follow your valuable suggestions.

Marks d 16/7/40 & Esther Milly d 20/11/52 Albeitman are buried next to each other in Willesden United Synagogue cemetery, section EX, Row 16, Plots 852/3. Next time I'm there I will take photos for you.

By chance, I am in the National Archives, Kew, and found there is only a naturalisation record for Samuel Harry. I have ordered one to view in 30 mins and will photograph it and send to you privately. I have taken the liberty of submitting a Freedom of Information request for a closed record for SH which should be dealt with in a few weeks. I hope that is OK.

Passenger arrival records

Diane Jacobs
 

First, I trust you phonetically searched for the both surnames below on NYC Passenger Manifests

using stevemorse.org

 

Next since they went to Detroit, you also should search phonetically using stevemorse.org for the

Canadian Border Crossings and the Canadian Passenger Manifests for many immigrants came that

way to get to Detroit.

 

After that you should search for all the other cities of entry using stevemorse.org

 

Good luck.

Re: The Zamosc Memorial Book is now On Line

Phyllis Berenson
 

Thank you so much for your translation!  My maternal grandfather, Isaac (Yitzchak) Finkelstein was born in 1889 in Zamosc and lived there until he left for the US in the early 20th century.  He was on the sub-committee for this book.  We have Finkelstein relatives in Israel who have the original book, but it's wonderful that now our English-speaking family can read it.
