Since my grandparents came 1890 could it be that they came via
Castle Garden instead of EI?
Hi!

For anyone searching for passenger records it is important to remember
that Ellis Island did not open until January of 1892. Therefore, those
you are searching prior to that date could have come through Castle Garden
(aka: Castle Clinton) c. 1855-1890, or the Barge Office, c. 1890-1891 and
1897-1900. Remember, New York was not the only port used. Canada,
Baltimore, Philadelphia, etc. were also points of immigration on the east
coast.

The Jewishgen web site is an excellent source for information on passenger
records. By searching the JewishGen web site for "Castle Garden," 1410
results were found. By searching the JewishGen web site for "passenger
lists" 3159 results were found. I highly suggest using the resources
avaiable to you through JewishGen. You may also use your favorite search
engine and learn more about immigration history and availability of
passenger records pre-1892.

subcribers might visit the following:

1848 Census #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear H-SIG Subscribers,

Several people have recently sent messages regarding the 1848 census
data available at the H-SIG website. This is a reminder that the
data you will find at the H-SIG site is a transcription by several
H-SIG volunteers of a portion of the 1848 census records.

H-SIG is looking for volunteers to transcribe additional records and
prepare them to be uploaded to the Jewish Gen consolidated data page.
If you are interested in working on this project, please contact me.

In the meantime, anyone who is interested in this census is advised
to rent the appropriate films >from the closest Family History Library
branch. Check the FHL catalog at http://www.familysearch.com to
obtain a list of films and film numbers.

copyright law and your photographs #hungary

Wayne and Caroline McCullough <iccoffee@...>
 

Hi everyone!

Just recently I suggested to VK that I would like to post my grandfather's
extensive pre-1940 Budapest photographs on a website for everyone to use as
a resource but unfortunately, after checking out the legalities, I am unable
to post the photographs online at this time as I do not own copyright.

This was something I had never thought of; after all, it is so easy just to
scan a picture and put it on a webpage. So, I thought that others might like
to know the following:

If you are planning on publishing or exhibiting any photographs or documents
pertaining to your family tree in a museum, gallery or book (in the case of
publishing) you may ruin any possibility of this if your photos etc are
posted onto the internet. I had no idea about this but after checking it out
with my brother, who isa lawyer specialising in IT and copyright law in the
US, and with a photographic artist who does commercial work for major
companies, I was warned of the potential problems. The photographer I spoke
to says that museums and galleries will not be interested in preserving or
exhibiting works which have been publicly accessible (ie. via the internet).
She also said that it is too easy for others to "steal" photographs and
publish them without recognising the copyrights of individuals who took the
photographs etc.

My brother informed me that if any of us are to publish or exhibit or post
photographs online we would need to obtain permission >from all copyright
holders or have copyright transferred. Even if you own the photographs (as
indeed I do in my case) you need to check on who owns copyright. My brother
told me that whoever is direct heir to the person's estate who took or was
in possession of the photographs at the time of their death owns copyright.

If anyone has any questions regarding this please email me privately.

EIDB manifest listings crossed out? #galicia

Joe Lonstein <lonstein@...>
 

I recently found on the EIDB, to my great surprise, that my great-
grandparents Moses and Therese SCHIROK >from Sieniawa apparently visited
relatives in NYC in 1907 with my infant grandfather and uncle in tow.
They went back to Europe, later lived in Vienna, and were killed by the
Nazis. Nobody in my family was aware that they ever visited the States.

Something is odd about the photographic copy of the ship's manifest that
is available on-line because their names and other information for their
listings are crossed out with a single line. Entries on the manifest
immediately before or after these the four Schirok listings do not have
lines through them. Does anyone have any idea what this could mean (if
anything)? Is it possible that they were supposed to be on that ship, but
didn't board, hence their names being crossed out? Were passengers only
listed in the manifests that would be in the EIDB if they actually
completed the journey?

Thanks for any insight.

Re: szczecin #galicia

Linda Muller <muller_l@...>
 

Yes there actually is a small small jewish community existing in Szczecin.

Check out the Lauder Foundation web site at:
http://www.rslfoundation.org/html/travel/t-poland.htm

There is a contact listed for Szczecin:
SZCZECIN
Shimson Pawlak
48-601-771-106

If Shimson above is "Maciek" (his Polish name)as I know him, then I know he
speaks English well and he's very nice and helpful.

In general, the Lauder Foundation is an excellent place to start for any
research on what is currently going on with Jews in Poland.

Hope this helps,

Your question is not clear. Are you looking for the street address of the
Cieszanow's Jewish cemetery?

According to
http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/pol-c.html

Cieszanow Jewish cemetery was located on the street that was formerly named
XXX-Lecia LWP.
This was the name of the street in 1973. What was the street name before
1973 or before WWII or currently, I don't know.
