Baltimore synagogues #general

guy & efi <haberge@...>
 

Hi genners,
I'm looking for a brother of my great-grandfather, named Ya'akov (Jacob)
Haber, who came to Baltimore MD >from Hirlau, Romania. Does anybody know if
Jewish Romanian immigrants had a preferred synagogue? If so, is there a
database available online or is there an other way of getting info?

Thanks,
Guy Haber, Israel

Re: Orphanage in Berdichev in 1920 #general

Anita <anitac47@...>
 

As I answered directly to Irina, it is always limiting to assume on
anything. Although I wish it were otherwise, we are no different than the
world at large. Currently an issue is spousal abuse in the Chassic
community. There are all kinds of substance abuse, infidelities (King David
comes to mind), crime, (Jack Abramoff !) etc. Having traditions doesn't
imply universal adherence to them.

Children could have been put in orphanges for phalanx of reasons: a second
wife didn't want the children; the second wife was not a physically strong
person; the child was wild (ADD/HD is not something new), the child was
dangerous; the adults didn't have enough money to support the child; the
father didn't have a heart....whatever. It might be interesting to trace
down stories (where possible) of what the other members of the family were like.

In the last digest there were a number of messages without the writing
noting at least the geographic coordinates of where they live on this
planet (assumed). It is very helpful to those of us who may want to help to
know where you live in order to make appropriate suggestions (like not
suggesting the New York Public Library is you live in Zimbabwe).

Giving a city or at least a country saves everyone time and makes the
assistance that much more meaningful.

Searching the Mt. Zion Cemetery database #scandinavia

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,
I have created a page on my website that suggests the best ways to do a
search on the Mt. Zion Cemetery database. If you are having problems with
your searches, it might pay to take a look at it. The link to this page is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm .
If you are looking for all the burial entries for a certain surname without
exact knowledge of where they are buried, I would urge you to search all
four available cemetery databases, i.e. those of Mts. Zion, Hebron, Carmel
and Moriah. These databases combined contain information on over half a
million burials.
I am hoping that the searchable databases for Mts. Judah and Ararat will be
created and put online before the August conference. I will let you know
when they are.
As a side note, July 1st marked the one-year anniversary of my virtual
museum website. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am thankful to
all those who have graciously have helped me along the way. I have just
revamped many pages on my site and have added new ones. I hope that you like
what I have done. The best is yet to come.

Best regards,

Re: 1900-era documents for immigration to USA #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Passports and visa were not required to enter the US until the 1920s.

Prior to that you needed a ticket to get on the ship. If you were not in
good health, or were otherwise thought likely to become a public charge, you
could be refused entry upon arrival.

It would then be the responsibility of the shipping company to return you to
your port of origin (without further charge to you.) Since that was an
additional expense for the shipping company, they sometimes tried to check
people before letting them board their ships.

If you went Canada and did not declare the US as your destination, even the
US inspection might be avoided by landing in Canada, spending some time
there, perhaps traveling west, and entering the US at a land crossing.

I hope that some of you out in "gen-land" are experts on documentation needed
for immigration. At the turn of the 20th century, what kind of documentation
would an immigrant actually have to provide in order to board a ship (and be
allowed to continue the voyage)? Name? Age? Occupation? Destination? Could
they falsify all of that?
