Viewmate translation--Yiddish in Latin letters or German? #general

montereybayrob@...
 

Jewishgenners,

I've posted a letter >from a potential relative in Chicago to another
in Buenos Aires for which I need a loose translation. It mentions
other individuals and the relationships among the individuals. There
are four pages to the letter. I'd like to know the vital info--not
necessarily a word-for-word translation.

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Search of Meorei Galicia #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,
Could someone kindly let me know what information is contained in
Meorei Galicia about the BRAF (BRIEF) and PARNES families?
I'd really appreciate it as the closest copy of the books to me is
over 150 miles away.

This is cross-posted on Gesher Galicia, RavSIG, and JewishGen Discussion Group.

Best Regards,

Re: Why put wrong years of arrival on Naturalization Records. A story & a Twist & a ? #general

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

You probably all know how it is to have some information right in
front of your nose and not realize the significance of it until some
time later. The discussion of differing dates jogged my memory
about a different but somehow similar situation that I can now make
sense of.

My ggrandfather, David REST, had traveled >from Latvia the port of
Libau to South Africa in 1897. Having traveled with a cousin or
brother, his relative stayed in SA and David returned to Latvia/
Lithuania.

In 1900, David immigrated to the US, arriving at the Port of Portland,
Maine, along with his wife and children-- home town --listed as
Kretinga, Lithuania (the place of residence of one of his sisters).

Yesterday I came across a record on *that* popular genealogy site--
the Naturalization Record Index card for my ggrandfather David. I
knew that I had seen this card before but it never had made sense to
me and I had filed it away in the back of my mind. This time it
made sense. According to this record, David REST had (first)
arrived in the US in 1898 (not 1900) through the port of Port Huron.
One of the witnesses was his son-in-law Morris LEVIN. Indeed, Morris
had come to the US in 1895 with his wife/David's daughter, Goldie.
So, it seems that David left South Africa, traveled to the US in 1898,
returned to his home to fetch the rest of the RESTs, and traveled to
the US again in 1900-- this time, for good.

It seems that on the Naturalization Index card, the original arrival
to the US is noted (1898)-- not the secondary arrival date (1900). A
nice piece of the puzzle. I now have a naturalization date (1906)
and have ordered it along with a search for his entry through St.
Albans through NARA.

My question is where can one find records/manifests of journeys the
*other* way-- >from the US to ??
