Thanks to all for this an important addition to JewishGen resources.  It's been years since I originaly uploaded my GEDCOM to the FTJP and have made significant additions since then. How does one augment or replace an existing family tree? I've gone through the FAQ and don't see an answer to this question.

Davya,

Joseph & Kate Slootsky are listed on:
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

Joseph:
Zundel Ber b. Avraham Yitzchak
Baron Hirsch Cemetery / Bayonne Hebrew Benevolent Association / Section A - Gate 128

Kate:

Gitel b. Gershon
Baron Hirsch Cemetery / Bayonne Hebrew Benevolent Association / Section A - Gate 128

With the exact dates that they passed on you should be able to obtain their death certificates. 

Since they are not listed in the NYC death index, I suggest looking at NJ.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Re: Decipher names on New York Passenger List? #records #names

The Becker's Email
 

The name looks like M. Gerber.  The address is 20 Ridge St.  There is a Ridge St. in NYC. 
The 1900 census for Ridge St. shows a lot of families living at this address.  The closest to Gerber is a Samuel Garber household.  There is no one in this household w/ a first name beginning w/ "M".  Attached is the link to the 1900 census pages on familysearch.org for this address.  20 Ridge St. starts at the bottom of the page and continues on the following page(s). The census was enumerated 2 June and the family on the manifest did not arrive until 24 Aug.; so there may have been some changes in the occupants at this address.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-6QGS-D52?i=4&cc=1325221&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AMSVC-DNY

Regarding the notation between rows 28 and 29, that is a code for citizenship info that was added later.  This info was placed in the occupation column.   Attached is the jewishgen.org link to an explanation of the codes in this column. ( The info file has other sections for other columns.)

Re: Researching family in Saint Petersburg, Russia #russia

I am writing to you because I have a vague recollection of my Grandfather Theodore Shneyer and my Great Aunt Sara Kotler having friends whose name was Ratner. My Grandmother was Irene Kotler Shneyer who died in approximately 1951.

The Shneyer family lived in St. Petersburg Russia and my Great Grandfather was the Czar’s Dentist.  His name  was Alexander Borisovich Shneyer. Family from Philadelphia brought Theodore Shneyer to America.

My Grandfather had family in New Jersey and lived in Brooklyn NY also. My father was his son, Seymour Shneyer.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, I can be reached at grsn@...

Thank you in advance for your time and possible interest.

JewishGen is pleased to announce a significant upgrade to the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP), enabling the addition of 555 new family trees, representing 454,416 individuals. In total, the Family Tree of the Jewish People now includes 7,684 trees which represent approximately 8,642,345 individuals. 


While small in comparison to Family Tree collections at major commercial sites, the JewishGen Family Tree of the Jewish People provides researchers with unique access to vital Jewish family history information that is available in no other facility. We encourage everyone to utilize this valuable resource that we hope will continue to grow on an ongoing basis.


Improving the FTJP was labor intensive and required the navigation of many complex systems and processes. In this regard, please join me in expressing our gratitude to volunteers Gary Sandler (Director of Systems Administration) and Iris Folkson (FTJP, Support and IT Coordinator) for the dozens of hours they spent analyzing and upgrading our system, adding trees for the first time since in 2018, and ensuring that the FTJP can be updated on a monthly basis going forward.


The FTJP can be searched by visiting: https://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/ftjp.asp

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Decipher names on New York Passenger List? #records #names
 
Hi All,

First time posting, so I hope I get it right!  I recently had a major breakthrough when I found the New York passenger list for my 3rd great Aunt, whose name was lost.  She emigrated with her husband and 3 other relatives who also eluded me for a long time.  The problem I'm having is that I can't decipher who they are visiting.  Lines 26-28.  Is anyone able to read the names of the nephews in column 16?

In addition, between rows 28 and 29, there are numbers which seem to have been added 8/31/38, 38 years after my relatives arrived.  I am unfamiliar with passenger record keeping.  Would anyone know what they mean?  

I've attached the full record, as well as a screenshot of the names.  Thank you in advance!

Amy Mitchell

Thanks for all the hard work that went into making this happen!

That being said, I notice that my family (as much of it as is there) shows the names and DOBs of  living family members, including me.

How do I alter this to protect folks' privacy?

The 1938 date is when he was naturalized, and they annotated the passenger list. If you find the naturalization, it will have a Certificate of Arrival.

There is a 1894 New Haven Court naturalization index card for Solomon or Samuel Slade / Slootsky on FamilySearch.org.  If you could locate the document(s) themselves there might be a clue there.

I have hit a brick wall looking for the origins of my family and would appreciate some suggestions.
 
My paternal great grandparents are Joseph and Kate Slootsky. According to the census, they arrived here in 1892, as a married couple. All nine of their children were born in the USA. The oldest two in New Haven, Connecticut the rest in Bayonne, Jersey City and Passaic, New Jersey. Some documents I’ve located have my great grandmother’s first name as Kate, others as Gussie. Her maiden name on birth records and marriage records of her children appears as variations of the same name, Valodarsky, Wollokosky, Valador, Volodarska, Vlador, and Valudet, which of course confuses the issue.
 
I have tried using various spellings of the name Slootsky (but have been unsuccessful) in finding them entering any port in the USA. I understand the records from Castle Gardens for that year were lost in a fire, therefore, they may have entered there. Unfortunately, I don't know where the family originated from.
 
After settling here in the USA, most of Joseph Slootsky’s cousins changed the spelling of their name to Slutsky or they changed their name to Slade. In later years, some of Joseph’s own sons changed their name to Slade. Joseph died in 1927 and is buried in Baron Hirsch Cemetery in Staten Island. Kate committed suicide in 1933 but I don’t know where she is buried.
 
Oddly, my branch of the Slootsky family plus 2 other Slootsky families all lived down the street from one another in Bayonne, New Jersey at the same time. The 3rd Slootsky family left Bayonne and moved to Cape May, New Jersey but I’ve never been able to figure out how these other families are connected to our family. 
 
I also discovered a second Joseph Slootsky. He left the East coast moved to Utah then to the state of Washington, however, I have never found a connection with him and my Slootsky family.
 
The only clue I have to where Joseph and Kate may have immigrated from is that a cousin, Louis Slootsky, (and I’m still not exactly sure how they are our cousins) came from Elizabetgrad, Kiev, Russia. Louis’s wife, Sahre Archangelouskaya came from Archangel, Arctic Circle, Russia. I understand that Louis and Sahre were uncle and niece as well as husband and wife.
 
If anyone has any suggestions for me I’d appreciate hearing them.
 
Thanks,
Davya (née Slootsky) Cohen
