Mechel RAUCH from Przemysl #general

Bruce Rauch <brucerauch@...>
 

The earliest relative that I am aware of who emigrated to the U.S.
is my father's uncle, Mechel RAUCH, who first appears in Boston
+/- 1881. I have found what I believe to be a record of his travel
in the Hamburg Passenger list which indicates that he departed
Hamburg on 6 July 1881 bound for New York via London on the vessel
Ophelia. However, I can find no record of his arrival at any Atlantic
port on any ship.

Mechel's wife and children, Teme, Moses, Reisel and Jennie, are also
shown in the Hamburg lists departing on 6 May 1882 on the Empress
bound for Hull and Liverpool for New York. Again I can find no record
of their arrival in the U.S.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what additional steps I could
take? According to the Morse search engine neither ship docked in New
York between 1881 and 1883.

Bloch & Guggenheimer Condiments #general

Ralph Bloch <papaworx@...>
 

B&G Foods is a New York based corporation encompassing a variety of
specialty food product brands. Purportedly, the banner brand derives from
the Bloch and Guggenheimer immigrant families in 1889.
It so happens that I am researching both the Bloch and the Guggenheimer
famiies. I wrote to the company asking for more historical details from
their archives. Apparently, there are none.

Would, by chance, any of the forum readers know anything about the founders
of B&G Condiments?

Re: NEMCHINSKY surname #general

Susan&David
 

While NEMCHINSKY may not be exclusively Jewish, I have seen the name on
Jewish records, e.g., Yad Vashem. My own family name is NEMERZHANSKI
so I often track down variants as best I can to see where they lead.

Re: Port of Detroit #general

Maybe it's called the Port of Detroit now, but it has been a point of
immigration for a long time. Immigrants entered it by train >from
Canada rather than boat. >from 1906 to the 1950s at least, records
were created of immigrants entering through Detroit. Unfortunately,
record-keeping for this port didn't begin until 1906, well after the
original enquirer was asking about.

Will anyone share with me how to find a manifest of a ship arriving
at the Port of Detroit in March, 1890?

Help with translation #galicia

John Gross <john_gross@...>
 

Dear all,

I would appreciate help in translating a message on the reverse
of an old family photograph. I think it is written in Yiddish.

I have posted the document on Viewmate at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate

The file references is:
14799

The direct Viewmate address is:

<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=14799>

The files will remain on ViewMate site for at least 7 days.

The image sizes are deliberately reduced to fit in with
Viewmate requirements but full sized images are available if
that will help.

Many thanks in anticipation.
