Re: More Information on Ellis Island WPA cards 1897-1902 #general

bernerfolk
 

I cannot thank enough everyone who's taken the time to shed light on
off the beaten path records and how to utilize them. Using Joel's
instructions (posted earlier today) I was able to find my target
person in about an hour, not bad considering my 2 mbps "premium"
internet service.

As Joel said, before posting to the group I had searched on FS,
Ancestry, Steve Morse, and Ellis Island and come up empty. In the
WPA index I found my person along with the uncle she was going to,
the date and ship she arrived on, her age, last residence, place of
birth, and the manifest sheet and line number for her (which I didn't
realize when I first saw it).

Once I had this I figured I'd just type the name and arrival date in
the search fields (Ancestry in this case) but that came up empty.
Then I put in the first name only with the arrival date and that
brought up the person but only on the Detained Aliens page. The DA
sheet provides the sheet and line for the manifest (that's when I
realized what the number notated on the WPA card was).

So my next step was to page through the manifest sheets to the sheet
I needed. Sure enough, the bottom left corner and other sections of
the sheet were missing, pretty much all that was left for the line I
needed was the residence town.

So in this case, the usual indexes didn't turn up my person for two
reasons. The manifest because her name was missing, and my search for
the complete name didn't turn up the Detained Alien record because
ancestry has it indexed as "WANRTWIN" instead of WEINSTEIN.

So if you're having trouble finding someone's passage, the WPA index
is definitely worth a shot (though you may have to go to a FHC to
access some of them). While I was interested in the 1897-1902 set,
there is another set >from 1902-1943 so keep this index in mind for
arrivals >from 1897-1943.

1875-1885 Budapest #hungary

jzeisler@...
 

Hi,
I'm looking for a summary for background of what Budapest might have
been like for the Jewish population >from the mid-1870s until the
mid-1880s; a bit of the culture, what the politics was like for Jews and
the economic reality. I'm ok with a few paragraphs or pointing me to a
book or a website that would be specific to that time frame. I've
searched online (English-speaking sites), but the descriptions I've seen
gloss over or skip that particular period and jump >from the 1860s or so
to 1900 or to the wars. >from what I have gathered, The Jewish population
in Budapest experienced huge growth during that period. I do have the
book "Budapest 1900" by John Lukacs, but it's 15 years after my family
departed.

The reason I ask is that I'm just beginning to write the history of my
family that immigrated to America between 1881-1884 >from Budapest,
having lived in other towns in Hungary over the years (Diosgyor,
Miskolc, Vacs, Eger, Solnok, Szentes, Gyongyos), and would like to give
the reader some background of what the area around Dohany synagogue
might have been like, my family having lived on Sip ut, Vas ut, and
surrounding streets. My great-grandparents married in Dohany synagogue
in 1879, but in April 1881, they left for the US with a young child in
tow. My g-gf and one of his brothers owned a stationary store on Muzeum
krt for about 3 years, but they closed it in early 1880. Their father
was a school teacher in Eger and Vacs before they moved to Budapest, and
he wrote two books and later dabbled in the finance field, so they were
all fairly well educated.

>from what I've read, it seems to me that there was opportunity in
Budapest, and antisemitism wasn't so strong that it forced people to
emigrate. I'll probably never know why my family left, but I'd like to
provide a sense of what it might have been like.

Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

The European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative (EJCI) is using aerial drones to

Fences will be erected around abandoned cemeteries to re-establish their

Naturalizations Needed? #southafrica

Jonny
 

Both sets of my grandparents immigrated to SA in the 1920s and 1930s.
One set came >from England and were British citizens. The other set
came >from Palestine, at that time a British protectorate under a
League of Nations mandate.

Accordingly, as South Africa was still a British colony in those days,
I believe, would there have been any need for them to have gone
through a naturalization process?

Thanks in advance for all responses.
