I am trying to find out more about the ship Lake Megantic of the Beaver Line


Some of you are aware that in addition to the genealogy work I am a maritime

a shipping company was part of a larger British company called Elder Dempster. Any
records that would have survive would likely be with Elder Dempster's archives. I
would suggest starting with the maritime museum in Liverpool and doing some
searching on Elder Dempster.

I believe Halifax would have been the western terminus and the place where most
immigrants would have left the ship. They had a large an well established
immigration set up. There are museums in Halifax dedicated today both to the
immigration and another to Halifax's long maritime history.

During the winter months the St Lawrence River closed to shipping traffic so all
the winter crossings terminated in Halifax, During the summer some ships went on
the river to Quebec or even Montreal. However I believe Lake Megantic only ran to
Halifax year-round. She only operated on that route >from 1900 to 1903. Beaver
Line ceased operations in 1903 when Canadian Pacific starting its Atlantic service
on these same routes.

As for where an American bound immigrant would have crossed the border that sort of
depends on where they were going and what arrangements were made. There was train
service >from Halifax and they could have crossed in Vermont and that would put them
in the St. Albans records group. However it was also possible to travel west if
that was your final destination and then the most likely crossing point was near
Detroit. Less likely but possibly at some times was to take a steamer >from Halifax
down the coast to either Boston or New York primarily although it made stops up and
down and the coast line.

Someone might have some more specific experience with these questions but I think
that's a good start. Good luck with your research.

Shalom,

I will start off by noting that this will probably be my last Yizkor
Book monthly report. I will be shortly stepping down as Yizkor Book
Project Manager and my place will be taken over by Binny Lewis. Having
being involved in this project >from around 1999 and leading it >from
2009, it would seem the time is ripe for me to allow someone with new
ideas and energy to take on the project. In the meantime, I will still
be around to help Binny acclimatize to the tasks involved.

I would sincerely like to thank each and every person who has
contributed in some way to the continued success of the Yizkor Book
Project. I am perpetually in awe of the willingness of people to devote
their time and energy to help out in some way to move the various
projects along. I am quite sure that Binny will continue to receive
the same level of support and dedication which will enable the project

Ariogala tax poll questions #lithuania

Jeremy Lichtman <jeremy@...>
 

I have recently found some plausible ancestors of mine in the 18th
century tax poll records for Ariogala.

Chackiel son of Jankiel was one of two starzy (elders) of the community,
and a signatory of both the 1784 and 1765 lists. His children and
grandchildren appear to have filled other community roles, such as
szkolnik (shammas) and cantor.

His signature on the 1784 list reads "thus sayeth R'Yekhezkel (Ezekiel),
son of the high rabbi, R'Yakov (Jacob) (father deceased)" (brackets were
added by the translator of the record).

Is anyone on here expert in 18th (or possibly early) Lithuanian sources?

I'm wondering about the following:

* Who could Rabbi Yaakov have been? Given various dates, he must have
been born in the last quarter of the 17th century. The community in
Ariogala apparently only dates to the middle of the 18th century, so he
probably lived somewhere else.

* Do any of the records of the community elders still exist? Chackiel
was a starzy for decades, and likely signed off on many judgments in
that time. Did any of that written material survive (I've seen such
records for parts of Poland).

* What other 17th or earlier sources should I be looking at? Rabbinical
haskamot?

Many thanks,
