Re: Departure Information from Trieste #general

Mark Schwartz < markjschwartz@... > posted the following query:
I have a relative that departed Trieste in 1904 for New York. Is anyone aware
of records of departures >from Trieste during that period of time? In 1904 Trieste
was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and not a part of Italy.

Mark,
First, are you sure that they traveled >from Trieste to the Port of New York?

Second, if they did go by ship >from Trieste, it would not have been directly. From
what I can see in the Morton Allen Directory of European Passenger Steamship
Arrivals, there were no direct shipping routes >from Trieste to New York.

This leaves a variety of options. I don't know what was most likely in those days
with respect to such passages, but Genoa would possibly have been the most direct
land route to a port that went directly to New York. The other major Italian port
would be Naples, and that would involve either going over land (a longer route, I
believe), or traveling around the "boot" by boat probably to Palermo and then
on to Naples and then to New York. I would think it unlikely that they would have
gone north all the distance to Bremen or Hamburg.

Another possibility (which is one that a grandfather's nephew took in 1903) was to
go >from Trieste to Mexico (as there was a special relationship between the Austrian
Empire and Mexico -- Archduke Maximilian of Austria became Emperor of Mexico), and
go as "sealed cargo" overland to the United States. (This relation stated in his
Declaration of Intention/Petition for Naturalization documents that he left
Trieste, Austria on the vessel Dora and arrived in El Paso, Texas -- hardly totally
a ship voyage, but apparently one where the second leg of the trip would have been
treated as part of the ship passage.)

All the best,

Yizkor Book Project, December 2012 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Another year has passed, eh? A great deal went on in the Yizkor book Project
during 2012 and if to express this as basic figures, during the past year we
added 71 new books, 75 and carried out 400 updates of existing projects. Not
bad...

To add this, I have just been informed by Max Heffler, who leads the
dedicated team updating our necrology database, that in the last quarter of
2012 no fewer than 24,808 family names were added to this extremely
important database which can be viewed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ A remarkable achievement and
deserving of a hearty thank you to the team members!

If you are interested seeing facts and figures >from previous years relating
to the YB Project, you are welcome to have a peek at our "Development of the
Yizkor Book Project" in which you'll see data relating to our project going
back to 1999! http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html Whilst you're
there you might also be interested in seeing how we came about sometime in
the middle 1990's.

And whilst you're in our site, I warmly recommending visiting our main page
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ where, amongst other things, you'll see
a list of 400 volunteers who have contributed towards the YB Project over
the years. The list is far >from complete and if you have yet to appear there
and have played a part in the YB Project, be assured that with time I hope
to add in all of those who definitely deserve recognition for their part,
big and small, bringing the project to what it is today.

Finally, I am extremely excited to report that our tenth Yizkor Book in
Print is now available - "Yizkor Book of the Jewish Community in Dzialoszyce
and Surroundings". For those who are unfamiliar with this particular
project, in July 2011we begun making hard-copies of books that have been
completely translated and selling them to the public a very modest cost. The
project is being led at the very capable hands of Joel Alpert and if you are
interested in learning more about this project, I welcome you to visit the
following page http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html to see what books
are already available and what books are on their way.

Re: Departure from Trieste #general

Fiume, Hungary, now Rijeka, Croatia, was the major Hungarian port of departure on
the Mediterranean. In 1904, the Hungarian government entered into an agreement
with the Cunard Steamship company establishing a new line between Fiume and New
York, which essentially gave Cunard exclusive authority to use this port for
emigration to the US.

Search the Ellis Island database and you'll find that this route was particularly
well-used by those leaving parts of Hungary that are now in Romania, Croatia,
Serbia.

Re: Selected Naturalization vs. Petition Index #general

Lisa Lepore
 

Hi Michael,

Hard to say without specific information on exactly what was filmed. I think in
some cases, the films with the index cards were added to this database, and as time
goes on, the actual records were added.

The index only cards should lead to the actual documents, but you need to find
them.

When you are looking at a specific record, on the right side of the screen you can
select the source information tab. That source information will tell you what they
have filmed. Most of these items seem to be >from the National Archives [NARA],
so if they have filmed just the index, you can then go to the NARA website to see
if they have filmed the actual records, or if you need to go to the state's
archives or the specific court archives to get them.

If you can give us more information about the specific index records you are
looking at, hopefully someone here will know where the actual documents are
located.

New Yizkor Book for Dzialoszyce, Poland #general

Donald & Sandra Hirschhorn <sdh2381@...>
 

As Publicity Specialist for the Yizkor-Books-in-Print project, part of the

illustrations, in 7 by 10 inch hard cover volume.

This Yizkor book, written originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew by former

been beautifully translated, edited and annotated by Fay Bussgang and Julian
Bussgang. The Translation Project Coordinator was Menachem Daum.
We are very grateful to them for their work.

I have found in the effects of a recently deceased cousin a photo of a woman and
small child on the back of which is written

45 Manhattan Avenue, BROOKLYN

I'm guessing >from the clothes that the date is at the earliest mid 1920's latest
early 1940's. Where can I access census or other data online that is searchable by
street address?

The searching that I have been able to do provides some answers >from the 1940
census but 1930 census appears to draw a blank. Local knowledge particularly of
street numbering/naming would help - I'm in Mid-Wales UK!

Yizkor Book Project, December 2012 #subcarpathia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Another year has passed, eh? A great deal went on in the Yizkor book Project
during 2012 and if to express this as basic figures, during the past year we
added 71 new books, 75 and carried out 400 updates of existing projects. Not
bad...

To add this, I have just been informed by Max Heffler, who leads the
dedicated team updating our necrology database, that in the last quarter of
2012 no fewer than 24,808 family names were added to this extremely
important database which can be viewed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ A remarkable achievement and
deserving of a hearty thank you to the team members!

If you are interested seeing facts and figures >from previous years relating
to the YB Project, you are welcome to have a peek at our "Development of the
Yizkor Book Project" in which you'll see data relating to our project going
back to 1999! http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html Whilst you're
there you might also be interested in seeing how we came about sometime in
the middle 1990's.

And whilst you're in our site, I warmly recommending visiting our main page
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ where, amongst other things, you'll see
a list of 400 volunteers who have contributed towards the YB Project over
the years. The list is far >from complete and if you have yet to appear there
and have played a part in the YB Project, be assured that with time I hope
to add in all of those who definitely deserve recognition for their part,
big and small, bringing the project to what it is today.

Finally, I am extremely excited to report that our tenth Yizkor Book in
Print is now available - "Yizkor Book of the Jewish Community in Dzialoszyce
and Surroundings". For those who are unfamiliar with this particular
project, in July 2011we begun making hard-copies of books that have been
completely translated and selling them to the public a very modest cost. The
project is being led at the very capable hands of Joel Alpert and if you are
interested in learning more about this project, I welcome you to visit the
following page http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html to see what books
are already available and what books are on their way.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Yizkor Book Project, December 2012 #ukraine

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Another year has passed, eh? A great deal went on in the Yizkor book Project
during 2012 and if to express this as basic figures, during the past year we
added 71 new books, 75 and carried out 400 updates of existing projects. Not
bad...

To add this, I have just been informed by Max Heffler, who leads the
dedicated team updating our necrology database, that in the last quarter of
2012 no fewer than 24,808 family names were added to this extremely
important database which can be viewed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ A remarkable achievement and
deserving of a hearty thank you to the team members!

If you are interested seeing facts and figures >from previous years relating
to the YB Project, you are welcome to have a peek at our "Development of the
Yizkor Book Project" in which you'll see data relating to our project going
back to 1999! http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html Whilst you're
there you might also be interested in seeing how we came about sometime in
the middle 1990's.

And whilst you're in our site, I warmly recommending visiting our main page
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ where, amongst other things, you'll see
a list of 400 volunteers who have contributed towards the YB Project over
the years. The list is far >from complete and if you have yet to appear there
and have played a part in the YB Project, be assured that with time I hope
to add in all of those who definitely deserve recognition for their part,
big and small, bringing the project to what it is today.

Finally, I am extremely excited to report that our tenth Yizkor Book in
Print is now available - "Yizkor Book of the Jewish Community in Dzialoszyce
and Surroundings". For those who are unfamiliar with this particular
project, in July 2011 we begun making hard-copies of books that have been
completely translated and selling them to the public a very modest cost. The
project is being led at the very capable hands of Joel Alpert and if you are
interested in learning more about this project, I welcome you to visit the
following page http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html to see what books
are already available and what books are on their way.
