Travel in Poland in 1902 & 1923 #general

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

I have two questions:
1)My mother left Kolomyja (Kolomea), Poland in 1923 and traveled
to the Port of Cherbourg, France to take a ship to New York City.
Can anyone suggest what route she may have traveled >from Kolomyja
to Cherbourg? Would she have had to go through Danzig (Gdansk)
or the Port of Danzig to reach Cherbourg or could she have gone
overland by rail directly to Cherbourg?
2)My paternal grandfather left Kolomyja in 1902 and went to the
Port of Antwerp, Belgium to take a ship to New York City. What
route might he have taken to get >from Kolomyja to Antwerp?

Thank you for your help.

Use of (or meaning of) first name Basch(e)? #general

Allen Koenigsberg
 

Hi,

In continuing my research on Nathan Federgrun (Federgreen - born
near Krakow ca 1843) and his relationship to a son, or nephew, or ?
called Bernard/ or Berlett (as first name), I have come across an
interesting possibility.

In late 1883 (on the 'Elbe), I see a Basche Federgreen/Federgun, a
20-year-old labourer, coming alone to the US >from Austria, so his
age is of some interest.

A couple of people I have asked have said that this first name
(Basche) was usually applied to women. Yet, another has suggested
that it could be a shortening for 'Sebastian.' But most of the
usage I have seen does suggest a feminine application, however.

Nathan Federgreen did marry Sarah Kridel in Newark, NJ in Nov
1874, but there seems a good chance that he had a (male) child
before (back in Krakow). I did find a hint of such a person in
Dec 1904 (on board a ship arriving at Philadelphia, to see his
'uncle' in Monticello, NY), and his name there was Bernard SPATT
(coming >from London, but originally >from Krakow). No luck yet
at Shoreshim (where I have looked)...

As always, grateful for any ideas. I was also told that
Naturalizations for Monticello/Liberty, NY may have burned in a
1909 fire. If those survived, I am sure they would be helpful.

Formation of Surenames / Jews of Mecklenburg #general

Frank Bennemann <f.bennemann@...>
 

I found an interesting listing of Jews >from Mecklenburg (Germany,
the area around Schwerin/Swerin). This list is showing the names
in 1767 and the 'new' names in 1813/14. It is interesting to see
how names were twisted or added what makes it very difficult to
trace back family history before 1813/14. May this list help you
to better understand the formation of surenames in general and/or
to find your Mecklenburg ancestors.

Re: Can anyone read the handwriting on this 1910 Census Rec? #general

Deborah Scheimer <debscheim@...>
 

Martha asked: "What's the "pdf-version of a book listing all the Occupation
codes for the correct census year"? That would be a good thing to know
about!"

I found the occupation codes at this site:
http://www.census.gov/prod/www/abs/decennial/1910.html

I scrolled down and found this:

Index to occupations. Population division. Alphabetical and
classified. 1910. 256p. * Title Page [PDF], Full Document [ZIP, 37.0
MB]

I clicked on "Full Document" and then it downloaded the PDF to my hard drive.

I'm sure there's an easier way to do this, but this was what I found.

Also, I sent the above info to Joel Weintraub and Steve Morse for the
Morse website.

Happy Hunting!

I am researching "shpanyer arbet", which was a Jewish style of making
lace with gold and silver threads in Poland and the Ukraine.
Wouldn't that mean:

"Spanish work"

the way it was done in the courts of Spain?

"Point d'Espagne" it was called:

passenger manifest search, US arrival about 1903 #general

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Hi all,
Mordko SCHUBER arrived at Ellis Island 11/25/1909, and his manifest
states he had already lived in the US >from 1903-1909. I cannot find his
1903 arrival record, however.
I'd like to find out who he stayed with on arrival in 1903, and anything
else that I might learn.
Might anyone be able to find his record? Thank you.
