Abraham GREENSTONE #latvia

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Abraham GREENSTONE, born c. 1884 in Leeds, was the son of Hanoch/Genoch/
Henry GREENSTONE or GREENSPAN b. c. 1850 or other various spellings,
born in Latvia or Lithuania. His brothers were Max KASSEMOFF b. c. 1860
d. 1939 and Leiser MULVIDSON b. c. 1845 d. 1909. The three had different
surnames to avoid conscription in Russia.

He married Mary FINESTONE (SHUSTER) and possibly Etty SEGELIN.

Judith MILLER and Helen SCHELEFF posted stuff connected to Abraham
GREENSTONE on MyHeritage. I dont have access to MyHeritage but hope
that either of these ladies read JewishGen emails, or someone who knows
them could please forward my email to them.

Thanks in advance.

Missing manifest page #general

bernerfolk
 

I'm working with the manifest for the SS Rotterdam, departed Rotterdam 27 Nov, 1902
and arrived in NY 8 Dec, 1902. The person I think (the given name is unclear) I'm
looking for was held for SI, they are not on the Detained Aliens sheets. I have
the SI page which shows the individual was originally on sheet "C", which is
missing >from the film available on both Ellis Island and Ancestry.

I have two questions:
Are there any films of manifests other than the one shared by Ellis Island &
Ancestry?
Are there any ancillary records that can substitute for at least some of the
information >from the missing page? I'm familiar with the HAL lists so will try to
access those but what are all those different passenger lists like "Russians To
America" I see mentioned and are they of any real use?

citizenship questions/ Germany > Philippines > Palestine #germany

Martha Paradies <meparadies@...>
 

I know the story of how President Quezon in the Philippines worked with the
American High Commissioner McNutt and Herbert Frieder to enable Jewish
refugees to escape to Manila >from Shanghai (in 1938) and >from Germany.

My question is, I assume when they sought refuge in the Philippines they
lost their German citizenship.
Did they then come US Citizens?

Were there any fees involved to get the working visa allowing them to
enter the Philippines?

Did German Jews who immigrated during and after the war to Palestine/Israel
loose their German citizenship? If they lost their German citizenship, what
citizenship did they then become and was it automatic or was there a process?

Thank you, Martha Paradies meparadies@... Makati, Philippines

Travel of Jews from Russia 19th-20th Centuries #general

Travel of Jews outside Russia in 19th-early 20th century --

How difficult was it for Jews to travel >from Russia to Western countries in the
late 19th-early 20th century? Were Jews required to emigrate if they were absent
from Russia for extended periods of time?  How difficult was it to return
to Russia if he/she traveled to a Western country on a Russian
passport for an extended period of time?

Thanks.

Re; (US- California) New York Times Now Free in All 1,200 California Public Libraries #general

Sal & Ellen Barbieri <elsal@...>
 

Just an addition:
You can use New York Times >from home by going to your public library website
& entering your library card #. I've done this for years in San Diego.
Tips:
Before phones, people put short notices in NYT announcing engagements, bris,
unveilings, 20th anniversary of a death, graduations & much more.

I could never find my grandmother's wedding announcement although her 7
sisters had them in NYT. Searching husband of an aunt, my grandparent's
wedding announcement came up as aunt's husband was in wedding party.
Reason: Father of bride Mr. B. Simon, bride Miss E. Simon marrying Mr. H. M.
Goldberg, no first names. Long story about all details of wedding at
Carnegie Hall. So keep looking.

Searching for a baby girl who survived the Holocaust in hiding near Buczacz #galicia

Rebecca Snow <snowbeck@...>
 

I am searching for a girl born in 1941/2 who went into hiding in the
woods near Buczacz (then Poland, now Ukraine) and survived a
massacre in the winter of 1943. She was found alive, the only
survivor of 8 people (men and women) who had been hiding in a
nearby bunker.

We know that the girl was saved by a young boy and delivered her
to her aunt, who was hiding in a nearby village. Weeks later the area
was liberated by Russians, so we believe the girl likely survived.

If anyone has heard a story like this please get in touch! We are
making a television documentary, and have some significant
information for this survivor.

Thank you.
