Rhonda,  don't give up hope.

On one of my grandfather's several Border Crossing Records between Toronto and New York, he specifically stated the name of the ship he immigrated with (SS Corean) and the specific arrival date in 1908.

I did the same sort of multiple checks of that manifest, and several dates around his date, with no luck.  After all, someone wouldn't make up a ship name like SS Corean, would they?

Yep, he did.  A few years later, I found his departure record out of England.  He traveled in 1906, on a completely different ship.

Hi,  Dorisi!
I do not have common roots with you, but I wanted to recommend reading the topic about the Shusterovich family from Nevel on the Russian-language forum Jewish roots. You may be familiar with javax (he leads this topic, a descendant of Shusterovich is his wife). I think it will be possible to write in English there, I hope you find some useful information.

Seek info about 17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #germany #france

Hi
     I'm a newbie. trying to find out if there are Jewish connections to my husbands family.    Per mixed marriages in the 1600's-1700's I would be interested in any research that has been done. In looking at my family line I noticed a definite
correlation (in Switzerland) of when Jews were booted out of certain cantons -that was when my family lines showed up in various parts of the country
as Reformed or Anabaptist/Mennonite. My dad tells the story (he wasnt sure how genuine) that the Lehmans originated from Lake Lehman (spelling?)
and might have been Jewish. Unlike most Mennonites my family lines (WEBER/HORST) were strong pro-Israel for generations. What I found interesting was that
both in Switzerland -Germany(Palatinate) and on coming to America there were several families that had tight connections -married each other -my generation
is the first to actually marry outside those connections. My dad could speak Pa. Dutch well enough that when he went to Europe for Relief work after WW2 that
he could talk fluently with the people he worked with.

Sadly, the naturalization applications do not always have the full information. My husband's grandfather Aaron Foreman (later name changed to William Aaron Foreman) applied four times for naturalization and I have all copies but there is no mention of a ship name. It says UNKNOWN. He was 7 years old in April 1904 which is arrival date obtained from naturalization application. It says they traveled from Liverpool to NY.

Seeking information about Hillel Kivovitz and family #belarus

lhcomac@...
 

As a result of my search for information about my paternal grandmother, I'v learned that she had a brother--Hillel Kivovitz--that I never knew about.  According to the 1910 census, he was born around 1880, came to the USA from Derevna in 1898, lived in Bklyn.  His wife's name was Mollie, and they had two children:  Gertrude and Seymour.  Would very much like to make contact with descendants of this family.

I have tried searching, using Steve Morse's gold form, for the town, and depending its size, one or more letters of the last name.  I haven't found my relative yet, but it may help.

In search of Noam BECKERMAN from Ukraine/?Crimea #ukraine

Peter Lobbenberg
 

 
Eugenia ZASLAVSKY was born in Kerch, Crimea (Ukraine/Russia) on 20 April 1903, one of eight siblings born variously in Kerch and in Genichesk on the Sea of Azov (also Ukraine/Russia).  
 
On 2 August 1919 Eugenia, aged 16, gave birth to a son Ura (later George); it is not known whether he was born in Kerch, Genichesk, or as one family document suggests, Kharkov.  Both Eugenia and Ura took the surname BECKERMAN, and Ura grew up to be told that his father's name was Noam BECKERMAN and that he came from Kharkov.  But there is no further trace of Noam, and nothing is known about him.  In particular it is not known whether whether he disappeared after getting Eugenia pregnant, whether they remained together and married, or perhaps something in between: or possibly he died young.  
 
In the early 1920s Eugenia's brother Abraham ZASLAVSKY and most of his siblings, including Eugenia with little Ura in tow, emigrated seriatim to China: initially to Harbin and then, in about 1925, to Shanghai where Ura grew up.  Noam - always assuming that was his real name - appears to have vanished from the scene.
 
Can anyone help trace Ura's father Noam BECKERMAN from this very sketchy outline, or suggest how and where it might be possible to make further enquiries?

17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #dna

howard sachs
 

DNA records and Geni tracings suggest material religious-ethnic crossovers in the century after Luther in Southwest Germany & Switzerland,.  Geni reports Vice President Pence has Weil ancestry with a Swiss cross-over in the 17th century (or late 16th). Y DNA  connects my closest all-male line with a "Pennsylvania Dutch"  migrant --early 1700s.  Similar tracings have been noted.  Any literature or comment supporting or rebutting this theory?  Howard Sachs, Kansas City

Re: Eisenberg in Raseiniai, Lithuania #lithuania

My Press/Pres and Schneider/Shneyder families came from the same area and had been living there for at least 3-4 generations by the time of WW II. Have not come across Eisenberg in my research as yet, there seems to be few known records from that area. Please share other surnames linked to the Eisenbergs and do list yourself in Family Finder if you have not done so, already. 


Re: Unable to find names on passenger lists #names

jennifer@...
 

OP said he believed the passenger arrived in the early 1900s. This is why I said to start by searching for a naturalization. Searching for a manifest without first searching for a naturalization in that era is not an efficient use of time. I was actually trying to answer the question at hand and be helpful to the person asking it. Had he asked for a lecture on the paucity of information in 19th century naturalizations, perhaps one would have been relevant. But I still recommend searching for them before searching manifests. Because limiting factors like addresses can give you more certainty you have the correct person. 

And certificates of arrival were required by federal law after 1906. So for someone believed to have arrived “in the early 1900s” there’s a chance some reliable information can be found.


Re: Re: Searching for Leah Noah Da Costa #unitedkingdom

martyn@...
 

I have searched Bevis Marks records but can find no marriage between Solomon/Saloman da Costa and Leah (?), so it is possible that they were married in another synagogue, not Sephardi.  It is also possible that in  spite of her Jewish name of Leah, she was not Jewish and they were married in a church.
I will try in the next day or so to search through the BM records for the forename Leah and see if I can trace her that way.
