JOSEPHS family from Neustadtgoedens or Jever #germany

Steve Jaron
 

Hello all,
I sort of recently found who I believe to be the family of my 2nd
great grandmother's cousin-in-law. I am trying to verify what I have
found. So I was hoping someone out there in GerSig cyberspace
happened to know about the family.

I realize we are not supposed to post whole trees to the list so I
will try to keep what I know brief.

My 2nd GGM's cousin was Siegmund LEVY (>from Duisburg) and he married
Johanna JOSEPHS. According to Geschichte der Duisburger Juden a woman
and Caecillie was her sister. According to various ship manifests I
have found there were other siblings (Ivan and Alma). I then found
them on Geni and it included more siblings. However Johanna is
missing >from that tree.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

[Belgium] Red Star Line Museum Featured in Los Angeles Times #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The January 12, 2014 Los Angeles Times Travel Section features the Red Star
Line in an article entitled: Next Stop Was America". Two million immigrants
who came to the United States >from Europe >from 1878 to 1934 on ships
operated by the Antwerp-based Red Star Line. Included were Golda Meir,
Albert Einstein and Irving Berlin and many "ordinary folks" including some
of our ancestors. One-fourth of the immigrants that traveled through
Antwerp on the Red-Star line were Jewish.

In addition to information about the original three buildings which house
the new museum, the article talks about the experience the immigrants faced
to get on the ships in Antwerp before being able to sail to North America
and some of the experiences they had on the voyage. The article also has a
gallery of photographs >from the Museum.

Hi Tom,

Working in Ukraine has been very hard: despite my being fluent in Russian I
have only been able to obtain a couple of documents...

I also saw you research the Susholz family. There was one such family in
Huncovce, Slovakia. Any relation?

Given name Khlonka? #general

David Ellis
 

I found the given name Khlonka on a Russian language revision list. It's not
clear to me whether the name is male or female. Normally I would think of it as a
female name, but the context in the document is the father's name of another
person.

Has anybody seen this name before?

Re: J.B. Altman #general

Sheila: 351 Harrison Ave, Boston was the site of Joseph B. Altman's ticket agency
business. Tickets were for ship and for railroad travel. RR tickets would
be purchased by relatives and held in the name of arriving immigrants for further
travel to their ultimate destination. There were two other of these agents in
Boston. A small but significant number of immigrants used these addresses as their
destinations.

When your great-uncle arrived he may have written the ticket agency as his
immediate destination, but it was only to pick up a ticket.

Marriage records for Snipiskes in Vilnius District #lithuania

peggyf@...
 

The Vilnius District Research Group has received the translations of the
Snipiskes Marriage records for the years 1855 to 1879.

Snipiskes is across the Neris River >from the city of Vilnius.Today, if
you visit, you won’t know when you leave Vilnius and when you enter
Snipiskis unless a resident points it out to you.

This batch of records include 190 marriage records. I noted two records
where the husband had no surname, but the wife did!There are about two
dozen records without a wife’s surname.

The Vilnius DRG translated the Snipiskis birth records two months ago,
and I posted over 1700 surnames found in the birth records at:

https://vilnius.shutterfly.com/surnames

Please note that this webpage includes surnames found in the Nauamiestis
and Vilnius birth records also.Be sure you search all three record sets!

There are 137 surnames in the marriage records that are not in the birth
records. (I used a computer to do this, so I only checked for exact
matches.Some of these names may have phonetic matches in the birth records.)
