Re: Ellis Island records #general

I believe 1892 would have been single page passenger lists, so if it isn't
there, it isn't there. Since the 1840's the forms were specified by the US
government, not by the shipping lines.

I have one question: I looked up a passenger on an 1892 vessel. Did the
passenger lists in 1892 (or was it steamship company-specific) have the
additional pages with the going-to-live-with entries as well? I know I've
seen that second page on the EI database for later years.

Is it that I just don't know how to access that or did it exist in that
year.

Thanks

Re: Ellis Island records-second page of manifest #general

Nachum <nachum@...>
 

I have heard that the second page came into being in 1907 or 1908.
Until then there was only 1 page, with less information than
was asked on the 2 pages (obviously).

My GGF and great aunt, arriving in May 1907, still had a 1 page
manifest.

I have never checked manifests >from the 1800's, but all the manifests
that I've seen had the going to question. The one page
manifests did not have the last residence and relative back home
questions.

Human Interest Stories--deadline extended #general

Sallyann Sack <sallyann.sack@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you know, every year the last issue of AVOTAYNU is devoted to
human interest stories. This year, in response to several requests, I am
extending the deadline for human interest stories to November 10, 2002.

The stories may be about any aspect of Jewish genealogical research.
Especially popular are articles that illustrate an unusual method or
resource, though good, heartwarming tales will be considered as well.

Because of the tighter than usual deadline, it will help if a short bio and
scanned [or mailed] illustrations accompany the article. Illustrations sent
by mail should be sent to the AVOTAYNU offices at 155 North Washington
Drive, Bergenfield, NJ 07621.

How do I find information about an immigrant from Romania? #general

Ann Lewin <lewinr@...>
 

Hello

I am trying to find out family geneology. Is there a book which list Jewish
Immigration >from Romania? Know that Daniel Zuckerman arrived in the United
States in 1884 (according to death certificates) Would like to find out
port left >from and arrived at. Know they were orthodox and settled
initially in Philadelphia. Home was Romania. How can I find name of ship,
ports and also name of congregation attended in Philadelphia. Also would
like to know if other family members (brothers etc) traveled with him and
his wife Cecelia. Any help appreciated as to actual information or where I
can find information. Have checked on ancestery.com and other websites
including transcribers ships guild but cannot locate. I live in CA. Tried
to locate naturalization papers as census says he was naturalized but cannot
read the date of naturalization and cannot find records. Wrote to INS but
have not heard anything in 4 months >from them.

Thanks, all help appreciated!

Florida probate listings #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Hopefully that one of the "genners" knows of a website that deals with
Florida probate, wills, etc. A few months ago I came accross a website for
Florida where if you put in somebody's name, some details turn up, like
middle initials, addresses etc. Through this site, and a middle initial
included within it, I was able to locate a long lost relative. So I've got 2
questions.

First, does anybody know of the site that I'm referring to?
Second, specifically about using a will to locate somebody. Are wills open
to public knowledge in Florida? One distant relative had 2 daughters >from a
first marriage, I presume that he had to have mentioned their names in the
will, whether or not they received any inheritance? Also I prseume that some
lawyers' name and address would be included in the will?

I appreciate any advice...jeff blustein livingston, nj jblu14@hotmail.com


New hours, closing news - LDS center, New York #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

Today (Tuesday, Oct. 22)I learned that the Family History Center of the
Latter Day Saints in Manhattan will have limited availability starting
now.

They will be closed all day Wednesday, Oct. 23, and reopen Thursday Oct.
24 with new hours: 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m daily. This is due to reduced
staff at the center. However, the building is undergoing extensive
renovation and reconfiguration of floor plans and will close temporarily
on December 1, 2002. Expected re-opening is spring, 2003.

Working there today, I can say that with construction upstairs and on
the next block, it wasn't conducive to concentrating. Extremely noisy.
Stay tuned for any other changes I hear about.
Regards, Mila Begun in NYC


U.S. - Panama travel documents 1912-1920 #general

Jerry Schneider <jschneider@...>
 

My grandfather was a master brewer and emigrated to NYC in 1906 where he
initially worked at a NYC brewery (Loewer's).

In the early 1910s, he began to "see the handwriting on the wall" and "the
noise in the press and public outcry" as the movement for Prohibition began
to make great progress. In 1912, he went to Panama (Central America) to
help set up a brewery operation and remained there until 1914. At that
time, he returned to NYC.

Because he wasn't naturalized until after 1920, what travel documents and
"papers" would he have needed to go back-and-forth between the U.S. and
Panama? And, where might these be located?

Thank you for any assistance.

Burial Lists #rabbinic

Joyce Field
 

Do you have burial data and photos of the tombstones of an entire
cemetery lying around which you can't submit to JewishGen's Online
Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) because you can't translate the
inscriptions? Never fear, help is near.

Neil Rosenstein has organized a superb team of translators ready and
eager to translate/transliterate the inscriptions on the tombstones
which meet the criteria of JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry (JOWBR). The team can work with digital photos according
to the following criteria. You must have photos of all the stones
in a small cemetery, all the stones in an individual landsmanschaft
plot, or all the stones in specific sections of extremely large
cemeteries. We regret that we cannot accept individual family
burial data. To repeat, we can only accept data >from an entire
cemetery or an entire landsmanschaft or otherwise specific plot in a
large cemetery. Obviously, if the inscriptions are not legible, the
team cannot translate them.

Please send the jpeg images on a CD-ROM disk to Neil Rosenstein,
clearly indicating the name and location of the cemetery.
Simultaneously, send two copies of a signed donor agreement to
Harriet Brown so that she can enter your submission in our tracking
system. When Neil's group completes its translation and enters the
data on our Excel template, he will submit the completed spreadsheet
to Ernie Fine,Technical Coordinator for JOWBR, and notify Harriet
Brown, Administrative Coordinator for JOWBR. If you have any
questions now about this procedure, please contact Harriet Brown at
hnbrown@gdinet.com or me at jfield@jewishgen.org.

All the instructions and agreements are at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/
Email and postal addresses of JOWBR staff are also available at the
site.

The team is waiting for your data!
