Dear friends,

Beeing new in the list. I am a little mixed up with the information
about the "embarkation manifests". May I request clarification:

1.- What is definitely the procedure to get hold of the Embarkation
Manifests >from Hamburg and/or >from any other european port that
jewish
emigration form Slovakia used to travel to the USA?Which where these
other Ports?

2.- Since what year do exist such documents and in what lenguages?

3.- Beeeing these documents so important for any geneological
research, I am interested to get hold of as many as possible. Could
those of you who already have in their hands Ship Manifests be so
kind
and mail copies to me> If there is any fee involved, please, let me
know:

Dear Carol, I have a copy of both manifests. One leaving Hamburg
and the
other entering New York Harbor. They are definitely two different
lists made
out by different people.
This is true for the manifests I have checked in the 1880's.
Perhaps later
things changed. Wayne

Amzallag family #general

laurphil@...
 

You could find information about the Amzallag family in the book "Sephardi
entrepreneurs in Eretz Israel. The Amzallak family, 1816-1918", par Joseph
B. Glass et Ruth Kark (Jerusalem, The Magnes Press, The Hebrew University, 1991)

The name Amzallag or Amzallak is mentioned by Abraham Laredo ("Les noms des
Juifs du Maroc", Madrid CSIC, 1978) and by J.M. Abecassis ("Genealogia
Hebraica, Portugal e Gibraltar", 5 volumes, Lisbonne, 1990).

This name has probably a Berber origin, meaning "collar maker" (See article
by Jacques Taieb "Berber matter in onomastics of Maghreb Jews", in Etsi,
Sephardic Genealogical and Historical Review, Vol.1, N=B02, autumn 1998,
to be published at the end of this month). The website of Etsi is:

Re: Your Question on Hamburg Passenger Lists #hungary

Ruffin R Cooper <rrcooper@...>
 

Touvia,
The best source of research on passenger lists or for that matter
for any genealogical material is the Family History Library at
the Mormon Church, formally named The Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-Day Saints headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah , USA.
Most of their churches have what are called Family History
Centers (FHC) where you can access information and order
microfilm and microfiche. Their records are easily the largest
collection in the world. I have a phone number which may work
from Israel on an International Call, 1-800-240-1126. I think
that a mail address is
Family History Department
50 East Temple Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84150
I would suggest that you look for a FHC in Israel, if not write
for assistance to the address listed above. They have a lot of
research outlines and other printed material that is either free
or cost only pennies. For instance, I have a 4 page pamphlet they
published on the Hamburg Passenger lists that provide helpful
information. In any case, here is the URL for the web page that
provides information on the Hamburg list:
http://www.genealogy.com/gene/ This page also has a link for
NARA genealogy.

Happy hunting

Re: Synagogue: North Shore Sons of Israel, Chicago, IL #general

H. Marshall Schaffner <hmssaba@...>
 

KINS stands congregation "Knesses Israel Nusaach Sford" and was once
located on the west side of Chicago and now on the north end of town. My
grandfather was an officer when it was located on the west side. Some
months back I wrote to them for some information in advance of a visit to
Chicago. Never heard a word >from them -- hope you have better luck with
them. Marshall Schaffner
Martinez, California

There is a shul called KINS, but it's in West Rogers Park and it's been
around a long time. I never really knew what the acronym stood for (we
always called Knishes in Noodle Soup). Could that be it? I've never
heard of a North Shore Sons of Israel; it sounds more like the name of a
lodge group or organization.

Re: Ships leaving Hamburg #hungary

Ruffin R Cooper <rrcooper@...>
 

I believe that the passenger lists for ships leaving Hamburg were
filled out by German officials using their own forms. The
passenger lists filled out at the port of arrival (e.g. New York)
were filled out by a ships officer and submitted to the
immigration authorities. I would doubt that the civil servants in
New York will fill out forms listing all the names for a group of
1000 immigrants (not too unusal for a large shipload), it would
slow up debarkation, at the least. I would expect that the
Hamburg lists would be more valuable since they include the
city/town that the person had last lived. Can anyone confirm
this?
