Yes, whatever name would have been spelled in Cyrillic
letters for Russian, and Hebrew letters for Yiddish.

Just like Peking became Beizing and Bombay became
Mumbai with different transliteration methods, our
ancestors surnames often became somewhat changed.
Generally, the intention was usually to keep the sound
the same, but, for example, Yiddish was pronounced
differently in different areas. And spelling was not
consistent until well into the 20th century in
English. Also, things got mangled and simplified.

However, Sawalkin probably came >from Suwalki, a big
city and gubernia in Russian Poland. The sound is
similar.

JewishGen welcomes the Danzig/Gdansk SIG #yizkorbooks

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the
JewishGen umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We also
invite you to visit the website at < http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where
you will see that contributions of family histories, memoirs, photographs,
maps, and other material of interest will be welcomed.

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides.

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of
tax-deductible (in the U.S. and Canada) donations via the dedicated
JewishGen-erosity page
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=31 >

Please join us in welcoming the research opportunities which the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk SIG will provide to all with an interest.

Ship's passenger lists to NY #general

chloe2000@...
 

I have a question about the ship's passenger lists that I hope someone may have
an anser to. I have found two ship's passenger listings for a relative, but
there are slight variations that I cannot account for. The first passenger list
obtained >from Ellis Island says he was traveling on the ship Pretoria that
departed Cuxhaven on July 15, 1906 arriving in NY on July 28, 1906.

the second passneger list >from the Hamburg website shows the same relative
traveling on the ship Deutschland leaving Cuxhaven on July 12k, 1906. I can see
where the dates may be slightly different, but I am not sure why he would be on
two separate ships? Is it possible that he started out on one ship and changed
to another and at another port? Any suggestions on this question would be
appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Vasakamosevyetz #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Using the phonetic index in Where Once We Walked (Revised Edition),
Vasakamosevyetz codes as 745647, and that code suggests the town name is
probably Wysokie Mazowieckie, 49 km West Southwest of Bialystok in modern
Poland. This area was part of the Russian Empire prior to WWI and its name
would then have been written in Latin characters something like Visoka
Mazovietzk. Bialystok was in Grodno Gubernia in the Pale of Settlement,
but 49 km to the WSW might have put Wysokie Mazowieckie in the Lomza
Gubernia of Russian-Poland. It is possible that "Comshka " is a distortion
of the native pronunciation of Lomza, which is quite different >from what
those letters imply to a native reader/speaker of English..

The map coordinates for Wysokie Mazowieckie are 52 degrees 55 minutes North
and 22 degrees 31 minutes East. Between the World Wars, the Jewish
population was recorded as 1898 people.

Vasakamosevyetz Comshka Gubernia. Anyone know where this could be?

Re: Ship's passenger lists to NY #general

Looking at the manifest using the Steve Morse missing manifest site,
(Series T715 Roll 746 Frames 273- 436) I found a large number of the
sheets with the name Deutschland crossed out and the name Pretoria
stamped over it. Other sheets have only the name Pretoria.
My guess is that some of the Pretoria passengers were listed to go on
the Deutschland, but for some reason were transferred to the Pretoria;
the already prepared manifest sheets went with them where they were
over-stamped. Hamburg kept a set of the first Deutschland sheets,
unaware that they were changed on the Pretoria.
The fact that the Deutschland appears to have sailed a few days earlier
than the Pretoria leads me to believe there may have been some problem
that caused the ship to return to port.

Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry at Ellis Island #general

My grandfather and his family were "held for special inquiry" and
eventually deported when they first came to the U.S. (i.e., Ellis
Island) in 1921. Under "cause of detention," there is an entry that
looks like "LPG PH D" What does this mean?

I shouldn't wonder you didn't find it.

There is no gubernia with a name resembling "Comshka". You can prove
this to yourself by going to the JRI Database Search page and
examining the list of gubernias in the "Region" drop-down list.
"Vasakamosevyetz" similarly looks more like a surgical procedure than
anything else, but the clue is in the consonants of the first half: it
is "Wysoko-", which is a real Polish element meaning "High-". Doing
the same exercize on the second half produces "-Mazowieckie" --
altogether, "Mazowian Heights" (Mazowia is an area including much of
eastern Poland), and this is a real place. Try looking up "Wysokie
Mazowieckie", which is in the former Lomza Gubernia.

Re: WEINER/BORG/BASSA/SCHUCK #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Susan Edel is looking for information about Heinrich
WEINER, born about 1864 in Pirnitz [Moravia], who went
to Vienna in about 1880. He married Henriette BORG
who died in 1919. She is also looking for Josef SCHUCK
who married Rosalia nee BASSA who died 1940.
Unfortunately, Susan says that she has no further
information about any of these people.

First of all, I would strongly advise Susan to join
the Austria-Czech SIG of Jewishgen, if she has not
already done so. This SIG with about 700 members
specialises in Bohemia and Moravia as well as in
Austria, with special reference to Vienna, where most
of the ca 200,000 Austrian Jews lived before 1938.
Many Jews emigrated >from Bohemia and Moravia [now the
Czech Republic] as well as other areas of the Habsburg
Empire after 1848, and settled in Vienna:

http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/

However for the name BASSA - this is very rare in
Vienna - Susan must look elsewhere as this name is
centred on Slovakia and hence the Hungarian SIG would
be more appropriate. I have found a single Berthold
BASSA living in Vienna in the 1930s and he should be a
good lead. Perhaps he is Rosalia's nephew? And this
could be Rosalia's father's grave:

Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 Group 49A Row 11 Grave 23A
BASSA Adolf aged 86 died 10.03.1916

I have found Heinrich WEINER >from Pirnitz, Moravia
buried in Vienna, together with Henriette, who
pre-deceased him; Heinrich was born in 1856 and must
have arrived in Vienna as a young man of 24. If he
married in Vienna, then a bonanza of data will be
there:

Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 Gp 53B Row 28 Grave 28
WEINER Heinrich aged 85 died 27.11.1941
WEINER Henriette aged 63 buried 25.10.1918

from the asset file data I have found Heinrich's exact
date of birth: WEINER Heinrich 08-10-1856
The asset file will give many more details.

And here is the SCHUCK grave:
Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 Gp7 Row 7 Grave 15A
SCHUCK Josef aged 56 died 16.02.1904
SCHUCK Rosalia aged 83 died 25.12.1940

Nb SCHUCK is written with an umlaut.

There are many Austrian holocaust victims named WEINER
and SCHUCK. There are 15 BORG buried in Vienna who
could be related to Henriette as well as two asset
file holders.

There are so many leads above that with a bit of
effort, much more will be revealed.
