Based on my own experience, try to locate the citizenship papers for the
county where they lived. This should be filed under the Americanized name.
If they changed their name after coming to the US, there should be an
affidavit of name change attached to the citizenship application. The
affidavit would give the original name as listed on the ship's manifest and
also the name of the ship and the date and port of arrival.

I have pictures of my gr gr grandparents who never came to the US. He died
in 1881, so they are 1880 or before in the area which is now Augustow,
Poland. Also a picture which is my gr grandmother as a young woman-I assume
my g grandfather brought it with him when he came to the US without her in
1868-again in Augustow, Russia. So, yes, your pictures could be >from Russia

The easiest and fastest way to do this is exactly the same way that
you would find a telephone number in the US. except you speak to the
International Operator instead of Information. The Information
Operator will call Israel, speak in English with an Israeli operator,
and complete the call for you.

missing, I will not be able to look it up:
1. Exact birth date: Month and Year (and day if

ellis island success #belarus

ADAVIS <ADAVIS@...>
 

Okay, the search mechanism is very cumbersome and not well suited to those
of us who have become spoiled by Daitch-Mokotoff soundex or even metaphone
searches.

Furthermore, the capacity on the site is underwhelming, given that only 4
people in the world can access it at once.

Nevertheless, the breadth and depth of the site is pretty remarkable.
Register on the site to get access to the goodies... I sought out and found
a cousin, Ester Dobzewitz, among 4 records found for a general search on her
exact last name. A passenger record is linked through her name, showing
name, date of arrival (May 23, 1906), race (Hebrew), and nationality
(Russian), place of residence (Pinsk, Russia) ship (Fredrich der Grosse),
Port of departure (Bremen), age (26), sex (f) and marital status (M).

It gets better. You can click through to a tables version of the ship
maifest, which gives you a page and line number... I see that Ester arrived
with a daughter, Chaje, age 2, as well as several LANDSMAN >from Pinsk:
Malke Budmann (18, f, s), Selig Goldman (21, m, m) and Jente Salzmann (23,
f, m). Interesting. Were these relatives? Were they friends?

WAIT, you also get this fabulous link to the ACTUAL ORIGINAL MANIFEST!!!
It's all there in all its splendor... Can't read it? Well, that's because
the site is having a hard time loading such a big image with all the
traffic, but I saw it, including who Ester was following- her husband!
Click to enlarge, click to navigate right, left and otherwise. Want to see
another page of the manifest? Go ahead, click next or previous!

Want to save this to a hard drive, no problem, or you can put it into an
Ellis Island file, if you can access the site for long enough.

Long story short- this isn't an all encompassing site- not everyone came
through Ellis Island. For those with relative who did, you'll save TONS! of
time in front of a microfilm reader, to say nothing of a tip to the
optometrist, that is, if the site ever increases its capacity...

Ellis Island Records Conundrum #belarus

Judith Deutsch Bennett <benne034@...>
 

Hi:

This is a long report on my experience with the Ellis Island Database. In
6 hours of searching I had success and some strange failures ( which I am
trying to diagnose). Success and failure are reported below.

GETTING ON LINE
A light sleeper who wakes often, instead of trying to fall asleep after a
1:30am awakening, I went to my computer and was able to access and
eventually stay on the Ellis Island Data base for about 3 hours. This was
Wed & Thurs night. I do not recommend this for anyone with a daytime job.
The next day is very hard and fuzzy.

1. I first signed on and selected a password. I did this before I
attempted to search. The process starts simply. You type in a name. After
the initial screening you can narrow or adjust parameters..this is where it
gets tricky. For one thing, the overcrowded system bumps you off in
mid-search which is frustrating. The parameters they provide are sometimes
unusable(inapplicable)and it is easier to start a new search with an
alternate name or spelling. What is crucial is being able to stay on-line
and not get bumped off in mid-search. I had this experience on Thursday
night, uninterrupted searching. It is very exciting and keeps one awake in
the wee hours.

You need to have with you, as you search, all the information about the
person you are searching for.: birth year(s)/ years of possible
arrival/etc. etc.

SUCCESS
2. I was able to find some information very quickly. For several years I
have been searching for the ship my ALPERT (Grodno) grandfather came on. I
had a date of arrival >from a pre 1906 naturalization, his age and a family
story of his coming through the Netherlands. I had already searched through
passenger manifests of every ship >from the Netherlands that had arrived in
NYC near to his arrival dates with no success. I had been told the family
name had changed.

To my amazement, the name he was naturalized under came up with the arrival
year.year and the correct age. When I looked on the ship manifest the other
information checked out. He had emigrated through Hamburg. When I checked
his sister's emigration, her name appeared with correct information and she
had emigrated through the Netherlands.

I now will go to the Hamburg Lists to see if I can find the corresponding
records to confirm that this was my grandfather.

FAILURE
The conundrum I want to report is a missing record I cannot explain. To
understand the way the database operated I input my DEUTSCH
(Slovakia)grandfather. I knew the date of his arrival and the ship. I had
found his records several years ago on the Hamburg Lists. He had traveled
to the US >from Slovakia with his sister who had returned for a visit.

My GF's name did not come up on any of 5 attempts to locate him on the
Ellis database. I then typed in his sisters name and her record
appeared. You can view a typed ship manifest, so I clicked on that. Her
name and her 3 small children were listed (as they had been on the Hamburg
manifests), but my grandfather's name was nowhere to be found on the ship
records in the Ellis Island database (Augusta Victoria, Oct 3, 1896). He
was nowhere to be found.

I have been puzzling over this. One possibility is that his name was not
coded (human error), another is that the spelling (DEUTSCH) , which was
correct on the Hamburg List was changed on the list used by Ellis
Island. I will continue to pursue this puzzle.

There is one other family where I know the ship and date (and have the
naturalization papers) but I cannot find the family name or variations in
the Ellis Island database. In another case I know the approximate year of
emigration and can find no record of 3 people, using 3 name variations.

In total..over 6 hours I located 3 people and did not locate 8. I had
extensive information on all the people I searched. (census data, marriage
certificates, naturalization papers etc.)

It seems to me that the Ellis Island database is going to be crowded for
some time if the length of the time it took me to do my searches is any
measure.

I'm going to sleep for the next few nights and wait until next week to
become a genealogist in the witching hours.
