Does anyone have access to the Philadelphia arrival records or is going to
research them?

I want to know if there is a record of Shmuel/Sam MANDELBAUM arriving in or around
1915, originally >from Poland.

Eliash Todres SHERMAN and Emanuel/Mendel BLANK #general

Trying to think of some way as yet not thought of to find any information of these
two completely unconnected men, I wonder if anyone has spotted them on any lists.
Eliash Todres SHERMAN died in Vilna and I would guess was born about 1845
somewhere in Lithuania but maybe Poland.
He married Rebecca MILLER, again probably born in Lithuania about 1855 but had
family in Galicia and other places also.

Also hunting for Emanuel/Menachem Mendel BLANK son of Azriel Zelig, Lomza/Warsaw
area.

If anyone has spotted these ancestors who seem to have evaded all censuses and
revision lists, I would be most grateful.
(I have naturalisation and death certificates, but the search goes on)

Thanks

Seeking: RUBIN and Rabbi Shabse HaCohen (ShaCh) 1622-1663 #general

Henry <henry@...>
 

Hi all,

I am a descendent of the RUBIN family who are Kohanim. I was told for many years
that the RUBIN family who are Kohanim are direct descendents of Rabbi Shabse
HaCohen (ShaCh). I have contacted many RUBIN families who are Kohanim and they
all told me the same thing that they are direct descendant of the (ShaCh). A
relative of mine mentioned to me that there was a person who lived in Nyiregyhaza
by the named Yackov Rubin who had a family tree of the direct linage to the
(ShaCh) but unfortunately it was destroyed during the war and Yackov Rubin didn't
survive.

If anyone knows any connection of the RUBIN family to the (ShaCh) or any RUBINS
that are Kohanim, or any family tree of the (ShaCh) please let me know.

Thank You
Henry Schwartz

How were details for a ship's Manifest gathered? #general

Doug Mason
 

The Ellis Island database shows that Alta MANDELBAUM arrived on the "Baltic" on
12 November 1920 with her two children and sister.

I know that Alta's husband was named "Sam" in USA, but the Ship's manifest gives
his first name as "Lain".

It does not take much imagination to visualise a handwritten "Sam" being misread
as "Lain". The ship's manifest is typed, not handwritten.

How was the information gathered for the Ship's manifest? Was the information
given orally or did the passengers provide the information in writing?

Given the level of detail provided in the Ship's Manifest, and the fact that many
people could not speak or write English, it is possible to imagine that forms were
given to the passengers that were completed and then transcribed by a typist to
the Manifest during the voyage. Is this what happened?

Manhattan Address from the 1940's #general

Judy Wolkovitch <judywolk@...>
 

I have received information that a family member lived at xxx W. 92nd St.
Manhattan in the 1940's. His name was Aaron HOROWICZ and as he was born around
1904 I am sure he is no longer alive. It is possible that he changed his name but
I am wondering if anyone can suggest areas of research that might help me find
further information about residents at this address.

Many thanks,

1910 Census Success in Locating Address #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Thanks to fellow genners, and particularly Joel Weintraub, I found the 3820 3rd
Ave. address for which I was looking. My difficulty stemmed >from the fact that I
was looking in Manhattan as the address as listed on my ggrandmother's 1910 death
certificate states New York City for the address. The address, it turns out,is
actually in the Bronx. If one looks on the correct census sheet for the address
it does say New York City and then Bronx borough. I found the address on Roll
1001, ED 1561, p. 38, image 2.

Interesting though is the fact that the odd numbers, e.g, 3821, are located on a
different roll entirely--Roll 1003, ED 1606. So, if you don't know what side of
the street you're looking at and plug in the coordinates you find yourself looking
at two different rolls.

This answer may solve another address problem I had. My ggrandmother ship's
manifest stated she was going to 1592 Washington St., NYC. I never could find the
address in Manhattan but there is a Washington Ave. with that address in the
Bronx. I just need to find it on the census roll.

Viewmate result #unitedkingdom

Stan Rose <stan@...>
 

I have received a superb result for the Viewmate item VM6758 >from Judith
Romney Wagner. She has taken the time to advise me that the document, which
had been stuck together with postage stamp edges by someone unknown, was
out of alignment. It was hand written in Hebrew and she confirmed that it
is the Ketuba of my maternal Grandparents.

The dates and their names confirmed details I have >from the marriage
registration doc. >from the archives in Riga. It also revealed the full
names of my great grandfather.

What was particularly difficult was the dark areas and damage caused by the
use of the sticky paper and the incorrect alignment of the torn halves.
Judith saw this yet was able to decipher the really most important points.

I keep my old documents in archival clear pockets as used by the British
Museum, among many others, and they are of sufficient clarity to scan or
photograph the papers inside. I would advise everyone to consider this
system and definitely to avoid suing tape to join torn papers!!

I am very grateful to Judith for her help.
