Immigration-steerage of passenger ship #general

Eva Lawrence
 

I'm posting an 1851 woodcut of the steerage of a passenger ship which
should help inform further discussion on the subject. I hope that the
background is clear enough to show how unpleasant the voyage would be.

help with one or two handwritten characters on us census #general

tom
 

i posted a page from the 1940 us census to viewmate, and i would like some expert advice on figuring out just one line, EPSTEIN Antol line 78, and exactly one field, "marital status". the original entry is scratched out, and i'm having difficulty with the correction. it's strange that it needed correcting, but i also wonder what the rules were for making changes?

please reply directly within viewmate:

Re: navy emblem on gravestone? #general

Kenneth Ryesky
 

Sometimes the symbols and devices on grave markers (and memorial plaques) represent some sort of preference or quirk of the decedent (or ascribed to the decedent by one or more survivors).

My sister, for example, had this thing about butterflies.  She had butterfly themes in her clothing, jewelry, and home decor, and even in one of her e-mail addresses.  So when a close friend of hers suggested that a butterfly be placed on her grave marker, my Mom and I readily acquiesced.

#general #germany Questions about Document in Germany #general #germany

Susan Miller
 

A cousin of mine has a document entitled:

 

"Auszüge aus dem Registern der Juden der Gemeinde Griesheim Kr. Darmstadt"

 

It concludes with the following text:

 

"Die Richtigkeit des Auszugs wird bescheinigt.

Griesheim Kreis Darmstadt, den 27. Juli 1938.

Der Bürgermeister."

 

The body of the document is a list of all family members from the mid-18th century until the date it was prepared in 1938. My cousin always assumed that this was a document that Jews were required to provide to German authorities for their nefarious purposes.  He is interested in the circumstances surrounding the preparation of this document, i.e. 

-Who would have ordered that it be prepared and for what purposes was it ordered?

-How was the family notified that they were required to obtain the document?

-Did Jewish families obtain the list of family members from the Darmstadt city government?

-Was the family required to submit it to the German authorities or was it submitted by the town hall to a German agency?

-Which agency would it have been submitted to?

-How was the information used?

 

Any information appreciated.

Re: Immigration to US of Avram/Abraham BERCOVICI/BERKOWITZ from #romania

Peninah Zilberman
 

Hello,

Every guess is as good as any other

Let’s just keep in mind that all immigrants had one objective

To get to the “Golden Medinah”  “ Golden Country”

i.e. USA-America.

 

So, could be one person bought the tick. Could leave for whatever reason

Another one used it under the first person’s name

Or, simply, they thought to use Pauline name instead of an Yiddish/Jewish name

 

By the way, you mentioned Romania- what city?/ village?

The main thing is they arrived and made their new home USA.

All the best

navy emblem on gravestone? #general

tom
 

i was surprised to find this emblem, crossed anchors and a shield under an eagle, which i think is navy, on a relative’s gravestone in texas.  

there are similar symbols online, as naval officers’ badges, but i found no records to indicate that he served in the navy, just a draft card and a medical discharge for a non-com infantryman with a similar name.  and i don’t know what the feather next to it means.  any suggestions?

Re: How to determine Warsaw street address? #warsaw

avivahpinski@verizon.net
 

I know the address in Warszawa of my grandparents' store on Zielna Street in Warszawa - I have a photo and it is listed in the 1928 Warsaw business directory.   Is there a way to find out where it is located today?  There is still a Zielna St in Warsaw and the closest I can get to the address is where the
Macabee Restaurant is now.  However, after the Shoah, many street locations were changed.  Is there a way of finding where addresses or streets were pre- and post Shoah?
