Re: Trouble identifying city / town on ship manifest #austria-czech

Susan&David
 

I can't find these entries on the original Montezuma manifest, arriving New Brunswick, Canada on Mar 23, 1906.  The handwriting on your list does not resemble anything on the original and must have been made later.
By the way, your grandmother did not make her own entry on the passenger list. It was made by a clerk from information given by the ticket purchaser.  At that time few immigrants from continental Europe could read or write English, in any case.

In the "country" column, my great-grandmother put "Austria," but for "city or town" I cannot tell what was entered.  It looks something like "RUBASSA" or "RUBACCA," but I cannot figure it out.  It's the fourth one down from the top of the section in the attached image.  The manifest is for the S.S. Montezuma, March 23 1906.  If anyone has any leads on what this may say, I'd love some help!

ViewMate translation request – One Name in Old German Script #germany #general

Jeff Marx
 

I've posted an 1899 Altona death record, in old German script, for which I need one name deciphered.
It is the name of my 4th great-grandmother, that, up to now, has been unknown.
(I believe it will list her last name as Samuel). It is on ViewMate at the following address:

ViewMate interpretation of photo #belarus #general

dprice dprice
 

I've posted a photo of my grandfather, Itshok Leib/Leo BADASH from 1930 (photo
may be a passport one). It is on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM82327

I am curious abut the shirt he is wearing. It it a military shirt? If so, he
would have been age 27 to 31 in WWI. He lived in Grodno, but his birth
certificate says he was born in Bialystok. Was Grodno ever part of Bialystok
district/province?

Please respond via the form provided on ViewMate Image page.
Thank you very much.

Hi Alizah,

Have you traced your grandparents through U.S. census?  Naturalizations?  Passenger manifests? 

Especially with a common surname it will help your research to find the town that they came from originally.  Naturalization papers (especially post 1906 papers) should give you a town of birth.

Re: Immigration photo possibility #general

David Oseas
 

Visas weren't required until the Immigration Act of 1924 (which took effect on July 1, 1924).

If your relatives naturalized after July 1, 1929, there is likely a photo attached to their Declaration of Naturalization (per Naturalization Act of March 2, 1929).

Re: An Old Song - Possibly Russian, possibly Yiddish #general

avivahpinski@verizon.net
 

Was part of the chorus  "kukirika kukirika+  ...toni go kura ?
If so, that was a song that my father used to sing to me - he was born in Poland in 1896. 
All i remembered was this chorus. Some years ago I sang it to some friends on a kibbutz in Israel and they sang the whole song back to me.
Unfortunately, I do not have it and hope that someone else can send us the words.
The song is about  a rooster crowing in the  morning.  I assume that it is a children's song for waking up in the morning.

I have a very old and distant memory of my grandfather singing a song with a title that sounded like Toni Godl.  The o in Toni is short and I have failed to find any reference.

He was allegedly from Kiev, Ukraine

This has been nagging away for ages, can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks

Re: Jewish name Dove #names

avivahpinski@verizon.net
 


Dov is a fairly common Hebrew name.  It means bear and sometimes there is a bear on the individuals's matzevah (gravestone) 
The Yiddish equivalent is Baer.

I'm sorry if this sounds silly but in researching a brother of the ancestor, his lists his father's name as Dove on the death certificate.  There is nothing on the tombstone.  I don't see the name anywhere else in the family and the family I believe is from Poland.  I've not seen Dove as a name before and was wondering if it is short, Yiddish, or nickname for something else.  He lists his mother as Annie which 2 out of the 4 sons have daughter's named Fannie.

Re: passenger manifest missing/not indexed? #general

Diane Jacobs
 

If you go to stevemorse.org
You can search the pages of any ship arrival
By clicking on the ship lists section on the first batch passenger manifests to New York. Type in the name of the ship and the month and year. When it comes up, click on the ship's name and up will come the actual manifest pages to look through.

Good luck.

Keep in mind that the info on the immigration docs was often given from memory, and the date and/or the ship name might be wrong. I would look at similar dates and, if necessary, other ships from around the same time.

Good luck.
