There is also at USHMM  a 'Registry of Holocaust survivors' which I have just completed on behalf of my mother. This is for Jewish and non-jewish survivors.  You can also search for other survivors.

There is a 1894 New Haven Court naturalization index card for Solomon or Samuel Slade / Slootsky on FamilySearch.org.  If you could locate the document(s) themselves there might be a clue there.

My paternal great grandparents are Joseph and Kate Slootsky. According to the census, they arrived here in 1892, as a married couple. All nine of their children were born in the USA. The oldest two in New Haven, Connecticut the rest in Bayonne, Jersey City and Passaic, New Jersey. Some documents I’ve located have my great grandmother’s first name as Kate, others as Gussie. Her maiden name on birth records and marriage records of her children appears as variations of the same name, Valodarsky, Wollokosky, Valador, Volodarska, Vlador, and Valudet, which of course confuses the issue.
 
I have tried using various spellings of the name Slootsky (but have been unsuccessful) in finding them entering any port in the USA. I understand the records from Castle Gardens for that year were lost in a fire, therefore, they may have entered there. Unfortunately, I don't know where the family originated from.
 
After settling here in the USA, most of Joseph Slootsky’s cousins changed the spelling of their name to Slutsky or they changed their name to Slade. In later years, some of Joseph’s own sons changed their name to Slade. Joseph died in 1927 and is buried in Baron Hirsch Cemetery in Staten Island. Kate committed suicide in 1933 but I don’t know where she is buried.
 
Oddly, my branch of the Slootsky family plus 2 other Slootsky families all lived down the street from one another in Bayonne, New Jersey at the same time. The 3rd Slootsky family left Bayonne and moved to Cape May, New Jersey but I’ve never been able to figure out how these other families are connected to our family. 
 
I also discovered a second Joseph Slootsky. He left the East coast moved to Utah then to the state of Washington, however, I have never found a connection with him and my Slootsky family.
 
The only clue I have to where Joseph and Kate may have immigrated from is that a cousin, Louis Slootsky, (and I’m still not exactly sure how they are our cousins) came from Elizabetgrad, Kiev, Russia. Louis’s wife, Sahre Archangelouskaya came from Archangel, Arctic Circle, Russia. I understand that Louis and Sahre were uncle and niece as well as husband and wife.
 
If anyone has any suggestions for me I’d appreciate hearing them.
 
Thanks,

The name can be Russified. If you type, for example, Moses Fridman - there is a lot in the list, you need to look at the father's name, year of birth, There is also a site called Memory of the People.

Decipher names on New York Passenger List? #records #names

amitch1066@...
 

Hi All,

First time posting, so I hope I get it right!  I recently had a major breakthrough when I found the New York passenger list for my 3rd great Aunt, whose name was lost.  She emigrated with her husband and 3 other relatives who also eluded me for a long time.  The problem I'm having is that I can't decipher who they are visiting.  Lines 26-28.  Is anyone able to read the names of the nephews in column 16?

In addition, between rows 28 and 29, there are numbers which seem to have been added 8/31/38, 38 years after my relatives arrived.  I am unfamiliar with passenger record keeping.  Would anyone know what they mean?  

I've attached the full record, as well as a screenshot of the names.  Thank you in advance!

One of my ggrandmothers was one of 20 children born to a couple in a tiny town. On each of the 20 birth records, her name was different. She was Reis, Rachel, Regina, Rosa, every other R name you can imagine except Rebecca, and Teresa. My ggrandmother was mostly Rachel, but she married as Regina, who was also a sister.

You can't tell what name or names is the 'proper' one. Maybe the woman had a Hebrew name and maybe not.

Have you considered a Canadian entry?  I notice that Ancestry has an Abraham SLOOTSKY (born c. 1894, "Russia") arriving in Quebec City, 2 July 1913, aboard The Sicilian.  Might he have been following a route pioneered by your Joseph and Kate?  And, if you haven't already, you might want to check out the Hamburg Passenger Lists.

The Family Tree of the Jewish People #JewishGenUpdates

Eva Lawrence
 

I have just looked at the conditions for submitting a tree to the
JewishGen website..

One of the conditions is that the tree must be all the result of one's
own research, or only published with the permission of the originator.
This requirement is surely quite impossible to meet. Almost every tree
is the result of collaboration. Some of the people whose copies of
original records have enhanced my tree first sent these to another
relative; some are dead. My tree, like many other peoples's was started
by a deceased forebear; some of my BMD data was published in a book
whose authors are now unreachable.. Many records were not in English so
I've translated them - does that entitle me to call them my own
research, even though someone else dug the copies out of an archive,
which is of course always the case for online research.

Re: Descendants of Benjamin Isaac of Niederzissen #germany

Ralph Baer
 

I made a mistake in my previous post. Hermann and Elisabeth probably did not marry in 1788 when Elisabeth (Leids) was 12. That was when Hermann (Heymann) received the right to marry. Their first child was born in 1794.This does not affect my question asking if anyone is familiar with any other descendants of Elisabeth's father Benjamin Isaac of Niederzissen.

Discovered possible (probable?) Jewish roots in Colonial USA #unitedkingdom #usa #sephardic

Albert Stern
 

I am looking for someone with insight into Jewish migration to Britain's American colonies in the 1700s. I was adopted as an infant by a Jewish family, and have known all my life that I was not of Jewish lineage. Ten years ago, I had my DNA tested, which confirmed I was primarily of British stock - I was disappointed then that I hadn't even a trace of DNA that connected me with Jews. Through ancestry.com two years ago, however, I discovered my birth families and have since discovered many fascinating things about my ancestors. This fall, my birth sister was doing our father's family tree, and discovered a David Levy, who was born in London in 1741 and who died in Frederick, Maryland in 1804. He married Maria Barbara Weis, who was born in 1741 in Germany, but who must have come to America with her parents (named Weissen) to Maryland as a child. Levy seems to have been a colorful character - the family historian of that line says he might have been brought over as a convict forced into indentured servitude (he was likely in the colonies by 1756 and for certain in Frederick by 1766), and that he served as a quartermaster sergeant with the German Battalion with Washington's army at Valley Forge. Apparently, a building in which he operated a tavern and hardware store still stands in Frederick. It seems that church records show baptismal and other records for his children and wife, but nothing (neither baptism nor confirmation) for David, though he is mentioned in church records but only as a husband to Maria - also, he never sponsored a baptism (i.e., he never served as a child's godfather) although his wife and some children did. My ancestor is David and Maria's child Sarah, who was wed in a Lutheran church to a Gessinger (parents Gessinger and Weissman, who may have been of Jewish heritage but who were married themselves in a Lutheran church). And this is where my Jewish line effectively ends.
I have many questions that I hope someone in this group can answer. Coming from England, David Levy was likely to have been Sephardic - I think. Could he have lived unconverted with a Christian wife in that era? It seems hard to believe, even in religiously tolerant Maryland. His 10 children had a mix of biblical and English names, which suggests some Jewish consciousness. All of this is very confusing and intriguing to me, and I would very much welcome corresponding with someone who knows more about this era. Thanking you in advance.
