Subject: Is there an east coast US point of entry other than Ellis Island?
From: Eva Blanket <eva.b@...>
Date: Thurs. 25th May, 2006


Could anyone please advise how one can get details of persons entering the
US after 1924, especially to New York, if they don't subscribe to
Ancestry.com?

Also is there any way of being able to get address and telephone numbers
from US telephone directories for any time period in the 20th century
(particularly the first half) on the net?

Also, is there any overall registry of Jewish Cemetery records in the US one
could access over the net?

Thanks a lot.

Victims' Suitcases @ Auschwitz #general

Sally Goodman <sbgoody@...>
 

This evening I watched the DVR of Elie Weisel and Oprah's visit to
Auschwitz.

As they walked through the Museum, they stopped at the window of the
suitcases and the name VESELY jumped out at me. I paused and forwarded,
paused and rewound until I could see the name clearly. VESELY is a prominent
collateral name in my family's history. How eerie this felt.

Then I saw other suitcases with names. Again, I paused and forwarded and
rewound until I could make out the names and information. I list them below
as I was able to see them in case someone is interested:

Petr EISLER #6446, born 20-111-1942, a child;
Ruth Sara LAX;
Fanni Sara KORNITZER, Wien; and
LEVKOVIC Alex.

Perhaps when someone visits Auschwitz, they could photograph the suitcases
with names, if permitted, and post them. It really makes this so very
personal.

INTRO - Seek ENGLANDER m. STRAUSS from Presov > California #usa

Madeleine J. English <madelanie5@...>
 

I am a new member of this list/community. My name is Madeleine J. English.
I live in Sacramento, California.

I'm researching my paternal grandfather (PA), Jacob Paul ENGLANDER
(abbreviated to ENGLISH upon arriving in the USA.) "Pa" was born 10
May 1863 Koshauer, Czechoslovakia. His parents were Philipp ENGLANDER
and Helene STRAUS both of Presov, Czechoslovakia.

"Pa" immigrated alone to the US in late 1876. He was "just" 13 years old.

He lived briefly in New York and worked as a haberdasher. Within a
couple of years, he started moving west and at some point, worked as a
scout for the Arizona Rangers (in Texas). Later he worked as a ranch
hand in San Luis Obispo, (SLO) California. Still later, he raised
and raced thoroughbred trotters.

It is most likely that he married his first wife (as far as we know)
while in SLO California. All the information we have is that her name
was "Daisy". IF there were children, they would have been girls since he doted
on my father as his eldest son.

In 1911, he married Elsie Betty NEHF. They had 3 sons:
1) - my father: Leonard Jack ENGLISH - 1912;
2) - Phillip Albert ENGLISH - 1916;
3) - Jack Paul ENGLISH - 1919.

I am interested in locating any information about "Pa" prior 1911.Of
particular interest would be any marriage(s)/child(ren) prior to his
marriage to my grand- mother and information regarding his "scouting" with
the Arizona Rangers. Thank you,
