Odessa Emigration/ MOED #general

Arthur Blutstein <meandart@...>
 

Since many of us have relatives who left Odessa (Ukraine) in the late 19th
century, I am hoping that information about routes of exit are well known.
I know that many of my ancestors arrived in Antwerp (Belgium) before
continuing to the US (Castle Garden, Ellis Island & Philadelphia). What
would be a typical route to these ports >from Odessa & what were the other
typical routes >from Odessa to the United States? No MOED is listed in the
Hamburg Passenger lists.

Thanks, Art

Could "Sayfet" be "Seifert." #general

Manxmen would not like that description. My son there
is what the locals call a 'comeover' and since he lives
there is now a 'stopover'.

The Isle of Man is not only not in England; it is not even part of the
United Kingdom (nor of the European Union.). While the Queen is 'Lord of
Man' the island is a self-governing nation with full autonomy over its
internal affairs. Its parliament, the Tynwald, is a thousand years old.

How to Contact Gabriel BRAUNSTEIN #general

Jessica Schein <jesshschein@...>
 

When I ask for advice on researching my family in Argentina, people
always suggest I contact Gabriel Braunstein in Rochester. As it so
happens I am looking for Braunsteins of Argentina.

I tried to contact him over a year ago by e- and snall mail but never
receive a reply. Never got a returned message either. Anyone know how I
can contact him? Does he want to be contacted. Anyone know anyother
Braunsteins or Bronsteins >from Argentina (and not at BJ) Thanks.

GOLDMAN/Poland/Help with Town Locations #general

Michael L. Knox <lucky@...>
 

In going over the 1870 Federal Census page for Baltimore MD wherein I
finally succeeded in finding my great grandfather and his parents,
apparently all born in 'Poland' (no city is listed) according to the
entries, I have noticed others appeared to have been living in the house
with them at the time of the census.

The birth places for these other occupants (as best as I can make out
the scrolling writing) appear to be (a) Saxe Coburg and (b) Wurtemberg.

I believe 'Wurtemberg' is in Germany but I have no clue where or what
'Saxe Coburg' is or was.

Can some kind Genner help me with this?

TIA.....Mike Knox.....Memphis, TN.....lucky@bellsouth.net

Rachel Kalof #general

I am forwarding this with the permission of Mr. Lenchitz.

From: Harry Lenchitz <lenchitz@gmu.edu>
Date: Fri, 11 Dec 1998 17:07:43 -0500

I visited your site for the first time today, and found it impressive.

The purpose of this e-mail is to ask whether you, or anyone in your
circle of acquaintance, is familiar with Rachel Kalof (with many
possible spelling configurations).

Several years ago, I heard a National Public Radio program about what I
believe was a book entitled "Rachel Kalof's Story," based on her diary
and photographs.

If I recall correctly, the program also referred to an exhibit in Sioux
City, Iowa on Jewish immigration to the midwest.

I have performed many computer searches since then, without success.

As I recall, Rachel emigrated to the northern plains of the U.S. from
eastern Europe during the second half of the nineteenth century.

She homesteaded in a sod house, etc.

In exchange for your help with this query, I would be pleased to provide
editorial assistance on articles concerning Jewish history in the U.S.

Thank you.
