Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry #general

Tom Malek <tsmalek@...>
 

After 16 years of researching my family history, and examining hundreds
of immigration documents, I have for the first time come across a record
of an ancestor's temporary detention. Not being familiar with the
document I consulted your very informative summary of the article
entitled "Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry"
(https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/bsi/ ) and am hoping that
you can help me with interpreting one part of the information.

Under the heading "Cause of Detention" is the entry "lpc 11". Your
article gave a clear explanation as follows: "The most common exclusion
was "LPC" or "Likely Public Charge," taken >from the section of law which
excludes anyone who might become a burden on the public. Many LPC cases
were coupled with Medical Certificates, because it was a medical
condition or physical disability which caused officials to think the
immigrant would not be able to earn their own living."

First question - did LPC include any conditions other than medical? My
ancestor, as far as I have been able to determine, did not have a
medical condition. Could LPC perhaps include a widow like my ancestor
who, because she did not have a husband/"bread winner", be considered a
possible "burden on the public"?

Second question - after the "lpc" entry is the number 11. I have
reviewed the 28 entries on the 2 pages of the form and they all have a
number, either a 1, 2, 4, 11, or 12. What do these numbers represent?

Thanks for any light you can shed on this matter.

Research question: THORMAN origins #general

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

In anticipation of the 2019 IAJGS conference in Cleveland, Ohio, I would like to
solve a question about my husband's 3rd great-grandfather Henry THORMAN. I am
posting in both the General list and GerSig for archival purposes.

Research Question: To prove or disprove a connection to Simpson Thorman, the first
Jew of Cleveland
Secondary Question: To find ancestral town in Germany and names of parents of Henry
Thorman

Known facts:
1. Arrived in America: 22-May-1847, age 28; Meta >from Bremen, Germany to New York,
NY
2. Settled in Easton, Pennsylvania. Member of Easton synagogue, Congregation Brith
Sholom (Covenant of Peace), beginning 1851, Trustee of synagogue 1852, 1855, 1859
(Source: Consider the Years: the story of the Jewish Community of Easton)
3. Marriage to Esther MEYER sometime between arrival and birth of first child (1847
-1850)
4. 1860 census, Easton, PA;=C2=A0 Henry Dorman, age 36; pedlar; born Hanover; with
wife Esther; 3 sons
5. By 1865, living in Manhattan, New York
6. 1870 census, New York, NY; Henry Thorman, age 52; peddler; born Bavaria; with
wife Esther; 6 children
7. Death: 19-Mar-1872; New York, New York; death certificate #110890; no
information about parents. Birthplace: Germany. Parents birthplace: Germany.
8. Buried: Union Field, Ridgewood, Queens, NY. Headstone just has name, date and
age 56. Not with any family. Wife Esther buried in Mt. Hope, Brooklyn, NY.
9. Families THORMANN were living in Altenmuhr / Muhr am See near Gunzenhausen
(since before 1800), Scheinfeld near Neustadt a.d. Aisch (since before 1800) and
Unsleben near Bad Neustadt a.d. Saale (since 1811). (Source: Dictionary of Jewish
Families >from Germany, Lars Menk)
Children of Henry and Esther Thorman:
1. Henry Thorman 1850-1921
2. Jacob H Thorman 1854-1930
3. Abraham Loeb Thorman 1857-1930
4. Tillie Thorman Schramm 1861-1924
5. Philip Thorman 1865-1947
6. Cyrus Seligman Thorman 1868-1950

Simpson (Simson) Thorman facts:
1. Born Unsleben, Bavaria, Germany; parents Schmuel and Bunla
2. Acknowledged as the first Jew to settle in Cleveland, Ohio by 1837
3. Immigration: Assumed to arrive in America in the late 1820s, before settling in
Cleveland
4. Alsbacher Party; 19 other Jews >from Unsleben, including siblings Meyer, Simon
and Rose Thorman and wife Regina Klein; 12-Jul-1839; Howard >from Hamburg, Germany
to New York, NY
Children of Schmuel and Bunla Thormann
1. Meyer Thorman 1808-1876
2. Simila Simon Thorman 1809-1890
3. Simpson Thorman 1811-1881
4. Abraham Thorman 1812- (did not immigrate to America)
5. Ramle Rose Thorman 1813-(No record of marriage or death)

Alsbacher document: Before leaving for America, Moses Alsbacher, the leader
of the group, and his wife Yetta were presented with a booklet by the Jewish
community. The booklet begins with a letter dated May 5, 1839 >from Lazarus Kohn,
teacher of the Jewish community. The booklet includes a prayer and ends with a list
of 233 fellow Unslebeners - probably all the Jews in this town of about 1,000
inhabitants. Source: Clevelandjewishhistory.net

There are no other Thormans on this list of 233 Jews remaining in Unsleben.

Follow up questions:
1. Why did Henry go to Easton, PA instead of Cleveland, OH?
2. What other documents could I find to show parents and town of Henry? ie.
Marriage record in Easton, PA?
3. Could Henry be >from Altenmuhr or Scheinfeld instead of Unsleben? What documents
exist that could prove/disprove this? (I have searched JewishGen Germany database)

Petrova Romania and Appelbaum Family #romania

Arnold Koslow <brooklyncowboy@...>
 

I am new to this list and am a member of the Livermore-Amador Genealogical
Society (of California, USA). I am trying to assist someone with their family
Research. The Family name is APPELBAUM (with alternate spellings such as
Applebaum, Apfelbaum, etc.). The given names are Samuel and Clara both born
per census/naturalization records around 1866/7 in Partoza Austria, a
location I have not been able to find. However I did locate a Petrova,
Romania and was wondering if Petrova could have been part of the Austrian
Empire at the time of the births. Can anyone confirm this possibility?

Samuel and Clara were married around 1888 since the 1910 census there were
married 22 years as of that census year.

If Petrova is their true birth area, per the The Maramaros County Jewish
Records Indexing Project, their birth could be included in Register Book #565
and their marriage in Register Book #1292. If some one, who has access,
could check those records and provide me the results, it would be greatly
appreciated.

Per census and other records they immigrated to the US in 1895 and 1897
respectively but have not yet been able to locate their immigration manifest.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Yes, LPC referred to financial status (i.e., likely to become a public burden), not
medical, physical or behavioral conditions, which were separate grounds for
exclusion. The most common causes of exclusion are listed here:
https://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/bsi/causes.html .

Second question - after the "lpc" entry is the number 11. I have reviewed the 28
entries on the 2 pages of the form and they all have a number, either a 1, 2, 4,
11, or 12. What do these numbers represent?
On the BSI pages that I've seen, the notation is usually "LPC", sometimes followed
by "Medical Certificate" or other notation, then a timestamp (which may be written
as "11." or "11:00"), followed by an inspector's name. I assume that the timestamp
was the scheduled time for the interview.

MyHeritage's scientific team lead by Dr. Yaniv Erlich , along with
scientists >from prestigious institutions, published the research in
Science using family trees >from GENI.com, a member of the MyHeritage
family of companies, using collaborative genealogy websites out of which
43 million had genealogical data, such as dates and places of birth and
death. The study about the roles of genes in longevity and how families
spread out geographically. After cleaning and resolving conflicting
information the study used 5.3 million validated independent family trees.
Eighty-five percent of the profiles originated >from Europe and North
America.

Findings >from the study included before 1750 most Americans found a spouse
six miles of their birthplace. This changed for those born in 1950 as the
distance stretched to 60 miles. Before 1850 marrying within the family was
common- on average fourth cousins married each where today its seventh
cousins. Another finding was that about the roles of genes in longevity and
how families spread out geographically.

Conclusions were: "good longevity genes can only extend someone's life by an
average of five years." Genes that influence longevity act independently
rather than interacting with each other. Further they concluded,
environmental and lifestyle factors have a bigger impact on how long people
live genetics which turns out to play a small role in longevity overall.

1910 Conscription? #galicia

Rod MacNeil
 

Hi,

In my great-grandparents' marriage record for both the bride and
bridegroom, there is mention of korishkrypsyi of 1910 to confirm their
ages, birth places and parentage. I'm assuming this is some kind of
census and not a military conscription since it is mentioned for both
spouses and the bridegroom was over 50. The couple lived in
Czortkow (now Ukraine); the marriage was recorded in a nearby town.

Any ideas of the reference?

Thanks,

Rod MacNeil

bridegroom, there is mention of korishkrypsyi of 1910 to confirm their
ages, birth places and parentage. I'm assuming this is some kind of
census and not a military conscription since it is mentioned for both
spouses and the bridegroom was over 50. The couple lived in
Czortkow (now Ukraine); the marriage was recorded in a nearby town.

Any ideas of the reference?

Thanks,

Rod MacNeil
