Tracking a passenger across the Atlantic through England

Steve Stein
 

I found a passenger, Yanckel Farfel, on a Hamburg list. I would like to track him across the ocean. According to a list I found on Ancestry, he departed in June 1887 on the ship Flamingo headed for New York. However, I can find neither him nor the Flamingo arriving in New York. The record in Ancestry indicates that the arrival place is "Hull (Amerika) via Liverpool", spelled and punctuated exactly like that.

I believe that this individual, upon arriving in New York, may be our relative who changed his name to Jacob Fink. I can see him in various US and NYS censuses, and can calculate his birth date at about 1869 and his arrival date at about 1887 or perhaps 1888, but not consistently. I have not yet acquired his naturalization papers from Brooklyn which would indicate the ship and date he said he arrived on, but in the interim, what does the arrival place indicate? Does it say that he arrived in Hull, on the eastern coast of England, and traveled overland to Liverpool before departing for America?

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page

Bruce Drake
 

Poverty was a constant in the shtetls of Europe. Many were born to it, others fell into it. The latter was the case for Reb Benyamin the Tailor, a specialist in sewing by hand who was once overloaded with work until the arrival of tailors with sewing machines. But the poignance of this excerpt from the Yizkor book of Czyzew-Osada is the pain he felt about the grim situation that befell a family with no money and in debt. “What will happen to them?” asked his wife, holding in the tears and pointing to the two boys, shriveled, with small, pale faces who stood near her holding on to her dress and the nursing child in her arms. “There is not a groshn of money in the house, not even a piece of bread.”
But Reb Benyamin could not hold back the tears as he trudged to the nearby villages to see if he could find some sewing work among the peasants. Suffering poverty was not new to him, but “a man can only cry like this under oppressive need when the heart melts looking at his hungry and naked, shriveled small children.”

Re: Maiming to Avoid the Russian Draft?

Jack Berger
 

The story about maiming circulated in my family as well. When my great-uncle was examined by a doctor, back in Russian Poland the doctor told my great-grandmother (his mother) that he could maim my great-uncle if she so desired. She refused the offer and made it possible for him to emigrate to America. Because of this my great-uncle eventually brought the remainder of his family (including his mother) to America, and is why I can write this to you today.


Requesting help with Dutch translation #france

I would greatly appreciate help with translation of 3 Dutch documents

Antwerp. These 3 documents (part handwritten and printed) were part
of an immigration packet I found for him >from 1926 prior to his
immigration to the US. Here are the 3 links to the documents at

I agree with Boris.  I know a cousin who married a Catholic during the war and was saved but only if she converted.   The priest asked her to convert and she did.
