Tallinn Jewish families #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

Latvia SIG has received a wonderful Directory of names of Jewish families
of Tallinn 1913. This will be an excellent addition to the wonderful All
Latvia Database. I must say once again that no individual lookups are
possible but thought you would love to know that we have it.
Announcements will be made by Constance Whippman our database co-ordinator
each time a new database is added to the All Latvia Database.

Pesach in Latvia #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

We have received this lovely message >from Rabbi Glazman.
Arlene Beare
President Latvia SIG

>from Chabad Rabbi Glazman with his permission to publish on newsgroups.

As in past years, Chabad's Passover activities were met with great success,
reaching more Jews than ever.

All cooking and preparations were started well in advance. A container of
Kosher for Passover items arrived >from Israel right on time. The brand new
Soup Kitchen at Chabad was able to handle the load; food for Pesach Sedarim
in 6 cities around Latvia for over 1000 people.

In Riga alone, 4 Sedarim catered to 500 Jews. A very special Seder was
arranged for the friends and relatives of Ohel Menachem-Or Avner Dayschool.
The students ran the Seder and the choir led the crowd through the
Haggadah. The story of Pesach came alive through various performances, i.e.
a live interview with the "Hebrews" at the bank of the Red Sea.

Eight student Rabbis arrived >from the USA to lead the Sedarim in
Daugavpils, Ventspils, Rezekne, Liepaja and Jurmala. The crowds were
enthusiastic and stayed late into the night; talking, singing and enjoying
the Jewish atmosphere so lacking year round in these small cities.

The Rabbis had many stories to tell, when they returned. A 70 year old
woman in Liepaja attended a Seder for the first time in her life! Tears
were shed when the old age song of Dayeinu brought memories of childhood
Seders before the war. And the round Shmurah Matzah was reminiscent of the
home baked ones done in secret during the Soviet times.

Three tons of Matzah were distributed to our needy brethren throughout the
country, including small communities such as Ludze, Kraslava and Yekapils.
In Riga alone, 750 families received Holiday packages, including Matzah,
Matzah meal, vegetables, fruits and a Holiday brochure.

In this Pesach season of 5761, no Jew in Latvia was left behind.

Difficulty with Finding Names on Ellis Island Records #general

Jackie Ziff <jackieziff@...>
 

I have been reading about the difficulty that various individuals have
been experiencing in finding the names of those for whom they have
searched on the Ellis Island passenger lists. Because I have been
discouraged by the difficulties people have had in accessing the site to
date, I have not tried it myself. However, I plan to do so in the
future when things hopefully quiet down a bit.

My feeling is that since the names on the passenger lists were recorded
by the purser or whoever else had the responsibility for recording the
names of the passengers on his particular ship, the spelling of the
names could be fractured to a point almost beyond recognizing.

Quite some time ago, I found my father-in-law's name on a ship passenger
list only by going thru the names entry by entry. His name in this
country was Ziff. In Poland, it was Cywan, the Russian spelling for
which was Tsivan. It was recorded on the passenger list as Zvivan. I
had never seen that particular spelling before and nor have I seen it
since. Had I been searching for the name by all the spellings that I
thought might be possible, I don't think in my wildest imagination that
I would have ever come up with that spelling. So an odd-ball spelling
may underlie some of the difficulties that some have described.

Same experience - I did get in and registered around 3:30 AM eastern (too
much caffeine, I guess), and the site actually performed pretty well.
However, it doesn't seem configured for the present demand. Best advice: set
your alarm clocks, and catch up on sleep at lunch-time.

As some of you may know, the Ellis Island
website is not exactly easy to access at this
point. In fact, I was only able to get into it for
about 3 minutes at the late hour of 2:30am
Eastern time. I must be running into some
West Coast web traffic. Hopefully they will add
some more servers to handle the load.

Ellis Island website registration #general

Elise Friedman <elise@...>
 

All,

For those who haven't registered yet and aren't charter members of the
AFIHC, here's the exact URL for registration:

http://www.ellisislandrecords.org/membership/wme_3.asp?login_targ=

(there's nothing after the = sign)

I would suggest going directly to this URL to register, rather than going
through the homepage and trying to get to the registration link.. saves a
few steps and a few hours of frustration. :)

Once you get registered and logged in, then start your searches.
Searches will only provide limited information to anyone who isn't
registered and logged in.

This registration is free and allows you to search, view text versions of
ship manifests, scanned copies of ship manifests, and info about the ships
themselves. It also allows you to save items in a "file" that you can
access again later on (for example, you can save specific search criteria,
or a ship manifest, or passenger record or a ship picture).

The registration form should be self-explanitory. Usernames must be
unique - no other user on the site can have yours. Passwords don't need
to be unique, but are private information. Make sure you enter the same
password in both boxes where they ask for it - they do this to help
prevent you >from mistyping when you provide your password for the first
time. If both boxes don't match, it'll tell you and they'll ask you to
re-type the passwords.

Hope this helps.

Bochst #general

Mmoreland@...
 

Would you believe it! I just spent about an hour at the Ellis Island
website - in the middle of the afternoon! I believe I may have located my
grandfather and his sister on the Noordam in 1905. But it lists their
"residence" as Bochst and I can't find that name anywhere. Does anyone have
any ideas?

TIA,

EIDB Suggestions #general

Weintraub, Joel <jweintraub@...>
 

First, I want to wish eastern Genners a good (full) night's sleep, so
us westerners can have better access to the Ellis Island
Data Base (EIDB)!!! So far it's been hectic, with trying to grab pieces of
information before I get kicked off the new site (especially between
screens). I'd like to see us share techniques we have picked up.

If one does get on the EIDB site, then I suggest you first register if you
haven't done so. If you don't register, you can do searches but
it appears you can't see more information on any found names. Also when
registering, I would check the box to allow the EIDB website to recognize
you when you use it again so you don't have to sign in each time. Question:
how many people can use the site at one time?

If I get the overload/too many people screen I use the Reload keystroke on
Netscape to resend the address. If between screens I get kicked out, I then
use the Go option and Reload of Netscape to try to reload/send the address
so it can resume (if I can get back on) at the point where I was cut off.

Instead of trying to print the screens, I use a screen save program that can
take a bmp snapshot of the EIDB screen results for future (off-line) use.
It's fast and I hope reduces the probability of being terminated >from the
site.

Some other comments >from the limited time I've been on the EIDB site. If I
hadn't found through the existing NY indexes my searched-for relatives, I
didn't find them on the new EIDB site. In addition, in order to see if
there were matches, previous research on the family was absolutely
necessary. For example, my grandfather and his brother came in 1906 to the
U.S. I researched them a few years ago, found out their surname was Barmab
and that Josef Chaim and Nussel on ships manifests were Hyman and Nathan.
In a few seconds with the new system, both appeared on the screen (Josef and
Nussel) with a search on just Barmab (you don't have to put a first name
down... and there is an option of just putting down an initial for the first
name to get people with different first names but the same last name). I
knew that on their ship manifests they listed their home town as Altkosentin
and Konstantin; both were >from " Old" Konstantine or Starokonstantinov. I
also looked for their uncle, Max Berman (Barmab) who was in NY at the time.
In the past I've found Max's wife and children coming in 1904 but no Max.
Sadly, still no Max with the present system. However, suddenly two more
Barmabs appeared on the EIDB screen >from St. Konstantin and Konstantin.
That was a major find as I thought only the 3 Barmabs had come to the U.S.
I don't recall any other Barmab on the Index Cards of the NY Passenger List.
As Louis Pasteur once said, " Chance favors the prepared mind."

Also, >from another search. I was looking for an individual (into U.S.
1907) whose father had come here in 1905; they both had the same names. I
had the father's ship manifest >from previous research. I couldn't find
either one on the EIDB. This isn't a question, as one JewishGenner thought,
of someone changing their name after they came to the U.S. Many of us have
ship manifest copies and can check if our relatives actually appear in the
data base. So, there might be some human error here in the transcribing off
the ship manifest. Question: Is there some place we can send email to, to
correct errors we find in the database?

It looks like one can do specialized searches. I couldn't (still) find my
Great Grandfather Chaim. I think my next step is to do a search on
Weintraub, before 1902, male, etc. (haven't explored the ethnicity or other
filters) to reduce the number of possible hits. It will take time to find
out all the filters we can put on our searches, time that the overloaded
system doesn't quite give me at the present moment. What I do like about
the new system is that one can see a list of the names, in order, of the
passenger manifest to see if people >from the same town/family are travelling
together.

Finally, I was able to see the scanned ship manifest for one person I was
investigating. I tried to do a direct save of the image, but it came
through as some sort of *.exe file that could not be run. I tried to do a
screen capture of the entire manifest page but there is no resolution under
zoom to see any details. Question: Is there a way of saving the image of
the manifest? The only thing I could think of is to do a zoom of the ship
manifest on EIDB (allowable), then do a screen capture. But with my
conventional modem (to be changed this weekend!) it took so long to redraw
the screen with the EIDB Zoom that I was kicked off the system.

I (and am sure others) would be interested in how Genners are getting the
most out of the new resource.

No you do not. I recommend getting up around 5AM eastern time
and registering then. It will only take a few minutes, and the
system will remember who you are >from that point on anyway (assuming
you select that option).

The index card info is free. I think you have to pay to see a copy

"First of all, one needs to be **very**, **very** patient in trying to

around 9am EDT, of all times, I got in and did well for about 5
straight minutes.

I had the entry page and was even able
to click on 'continue' to get to the page where you do the search. I
entered the surname, but, No hits, No runs, certainly some errors.
Does anyone know if you need to register before you see results?

I've had some surprising misses, too, but diligent looking will find
them. I was looking for a Morris, Bertha, Herman, and Louis
Mogilevsky. I found latter three of them together, as: "Brosche,
Chaim, and Leib Mogilawsky. I know Morris came over a bit earlier,
but no sign of him under any spelling.

So far.

Once the crushing load is relieved (either thru more servers, or less

long, I don't mind waiting a bit longer. The records aren't going to

Re: Ellis Island Database Experiences #general

barrychernick@...
 

Several people have commented on the inability to find the names they
know should be in a passenger list.
My input is to emphasize what one person mentioned a few days ago. The
spelling of the name may or may not be the same as you expect.
There is the further complication, the transcriber (who may or may not be
familiar with names of the nationality you are interested in) did not
transcribe "correctly", the often time difficult to read entries. Having
read many passenger list records I can attest to the fact that
deciphering the hand written names is almost impossible in some cases.
For example trying to figure out a script "o" vs "e" vs "a" can be a
challenge; when written in a string i,m,n,u,w can be confused.
from his naturalization papers I knew the name and ship for one of my
relatives. The first time I went through the passenger list I did not
find him. His name was Morris Chernick, I knew >from experience the name
should be Czernik or some variation. The second time I looked I found
Moritz C?ernak (second letter unreadable) traveling as Russian, German,
everyone else in the family (about a dozen relatives) traveled as
Russian, Hebrew. I am almost positive I will not easily find Morris
(Moish) Chernick when I search the database. The data base is going to be
a very valuable resource, but don't expect miracles. Be prepared to try a
lot of variations of names, even some that do not seem "reasonable".
