Re: ship's manifest, NB Canada, 1900 #belarus

Dear Joy,
The manifests for arrivals into Canada through St. John, Halifax, and
Montreal / Quebec are on microfilm and held by the Canada National
Archives. The arrivals before 1925 are not indexed.

They are, however, available via interlibrary loan, even to the
United States - I've ordered them here in Atlanta, Georgia.

Details about interlibrary loan are at
<http://www.collectionscanada.ca/services/005-3060-e.html>.
Information about the correct microfilm reel numbers is at
<http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.003-e.html>
(introduction) and at
<http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.003.02-e.html>

Be sure to place your order >from a library which has microfilm
readers - you probably won't be allowed to remove the films >from the
building. The films are frequently wound backwards on the reels (so
you don't know what ship you're looking at until you've passed all
those pages).

Good luck!

I've tried reaching Michael Schneeberger a few times but haven't received a

books on Mainstockheim and Schwanfeld, new or used? Amazon.de doesn't have
anything, nor does Barnes & Noble. Thanks. Regards,

researching families ANGRESS from Gross Strehlitz and SILBIGER from Rybnik #germany

Vivienne Marks
 

Hello GerSig,
I have just joined the group and am pretty much a novice in doing German
Jewish Genealogy research. I live in London, England. My native language
is English and I know a little German.

I wish to build up my family trees, but have very little knowledge about
either family.

I do not know the dates of birth of either sets of grandparents. Mordechia
(Maurice or Markus) SILBIGER died in late 1939. His wife, Esther(?)
(Ernestine)SILBIGER, nee DOMBROWISKI (?), I believe died in about 1935.
Max ANGRESS died in Bogota, Columbia in the 1950s,(?). His wife Paula died
in the same place in the 1960s.

The family names I am researching are:-
ANGRESS: Gross Strehlitz; Beuton; Breslau; Berlin pre World War 2.
SILBIGER: Rybnik in Upper Silesia and surrounding areas pre World War 2.
SILBIGER Herman presumed born in Rybnik fled East 1939ish.
SILBIGER Margot presumed born in Rybnik, married to Egon(?) fled East also 1939.
I would like to hear >from anyone who has any information on these families.

Re: Elsa NEUSTADT nee BRYK #austria-czech

Oliver Bryk >from San Francisco writes: <I am looking for information about Elsa
NEUSTADT, born in Vienna, daughter of Philipp and Fanny BRYK who married in
1871. I do not know Elsa's DOB; her siblings Hugo, Fritz, and Martha were born
between 1874 and 1878. According to family notes whose author I cannot
identify, Elsa died in New York (date unknown) and had been married to a
NEUSTADT (I have no other details) who had 3 children >from a previous marriage.
I did not find her in the SSDI or in the Ellis Island or Castle Garden
records.>

Oliver I believe this is the couple you are looking for:
NEUSTADT Elsa, dob 4 May 1872 and Alexander NEUSTADT, dob 26 July 1869.

As they had asset files, they did not leave Vienna till after end of April
1938.
There is a Sandor NEUSTADT living at Taborstr 20 Wien II/I in 1933; this could
be be *your* Alexander and the name suggests a Hungarian origin.

A Meldeauskunft will settle the question.
