Need help to decode abreviations & symbols on Detained Alien Passenger List #usa

Walter Rosett
 

1904 NY Detained Passenger list.

The name is given then 1dg. I presume that this means (&) one daughter which would be correct. Then Cause of Detention “to telgth”. From other records below it would seem to mean “to telegraph $ (money). The last confusing part is “Disposition” which states RR to Husb Ellias -address”. The name and address are correct although I believe that it should be son, not husband but RR is undefined. My only guess is something like “Remanded to Relative”.  Anyone with specific knowledge or a better thought?

 Please respond directly. Walter Rosett   <wrosett@...

Do you know if there's some kind of trick to accessing the records? When I search for Mishkoff it shows me a list of 19 records, but when I click a record it asks me to buy a subscription.


New Research: Jews in Ramsgate #unitedkingdom

Diana da Costa
 

New Research: Jews in Ramsgate   UK  Montefiore Estate & Lady Judith Montefiore College

 

A new book titled “The Montefiore Estate and the Village of Hereson” has just been published by Gerald Tripp and Benedict Kelly which is the culmination of years of researching and delving into records hitherto unseen. This is the second book by the authors** who have already been an enormous help to any genealogist researching Jewish ancestors from Ramsgate.  The book delineates the history of the former village of Hereson, once a medieval hamlet, historically owned by a small number landowners which included Sir Moses Montefiore and which is where Sir Moses built his Synagogue.  East Cliff Lodge, home to Sir Moses and Lady Montefiore, is included in the research as part of the Montefiore Estate. The research is fully referenced and includes many historical photographs, plans and maps. For anyone with roots in this part of Ramsgate, Jewish or otherwise, or for scholars of the Montefiore narrative,  or who has historic connections with the Lady Judith Montefiore College - this is a “must read” as the book includes details of those who lived in this area from the 18th century onwards. 

 

Books can be purchased via the website: http://www.eastcliff.co.uk/Books.htm, which also gives details of other publications** by Benedict Kelly and Gerald Tripp of their researches into Ramsgate’s history.  Once life has returned to something resembling normality, books will be on sale in local shops and outlets.  In the meanwhile, queries and requests for further information can be addressed to the authors at g.e.w.tripp@....  I have no personal or financial interest in this publication.

 

** “Ramsgate Jewish Cemetery 1872-2016 – Burial Register & Map, Monumental Inscriptions and Selected Obituaries” was published in 2016.

Jewish Migrants to South America #latinamerica

Jewish Migrants to South America

 When the Jewish Colonisation Society fostered migration to Argentina and Brazil many of its nominees passed through London, and the Society used the services of the Poor Jews’ Temporary Shelter.  As a result, there are a number of entries in the Registers of the Shelter’s Inmates.  These are accessible through the Kaplan Centre of the University of Cape Town.  They would normally give details of name, age, last place of residence, occupation and destination (either Argentina or Brazil).  It should be possible to identify them from other inmates by listing them by ‘destination’.

 Similarly, at about the same time, a number of the Romanian ‘Fussgeyers’ passed through the Shelter, and their details are also recorded in the Shelter’s Registers.  They can be recognised through their stated destination (either Canada or Winnipeg)

Re: Davidic Ancestry in the First Century? #general

"I'm doing a personal research project to see if I can find a reasonable estimate for the number or percentage of Jews at the beginning of the first century who could trace their lineage to King David. Given that King David was born some 1,000 years prior to the first century, I would imagine that it would be a somewhat significant portion of the population at the time (speaking of, what is also a reasonable estimate of the total Jewish population around that time?). One relevant factor which I would think needs to be considered is that not every child born would survive to adulthood, but I'm not sure how to estimate how many childbearing people that would result in for each generation. Another relevant factor would be that it was much more common in ancient times for people to marry within their own family lines, such as to first or second cousins, so that would somewhat narrow the branching of the genealogy as opposed to each generation continually marrying outside of their family line, but again I'm not sure exactly how much that would narrow the numbers by.
 
I don't need specific names for any of this, just a general estimate if the information is accessible, or otherwise some advice for how I might go calculating the number on my own. "Thanks!

Goldin family from Parichi and Rogachov (Belarus) #belarus

pgolden@...
 

Searching for information on Goldin (Гольдин) family from Parichi (Паричи) and Rogachov (Рогачёв), Belarus. My grandfather, Yeshiya/Евсей, son of Shlioma (Шлёма), the youngest of ten children, orphaned at age six, emigrated to the US in 1905, as did also two of his brothers, Barukh/Борис, later Barnett (in USA) and Chaim, later Hyman (in USA). The rest remained in Russia. An elder sister, aged 95, was living in Горький/Нижний Новгород ca. 1959-1960.

Thank you all!
Since I have two similar portraits, one of appears to have been  taken when he was younger (mustache and clothing a bit different)  this confirms that he was in or near Shavli for some time.  I still don't know if that is where he was born but this gives me some direction for my searches. 
Thank you Shlomo Gurevich for the information about the photographer!
I wonder how common it was to have more than one portrait done in that era (1884-1894?)   
Family lore has it that this gentleman left home because he didn't want the religious life that was intended for him.
