Help needed to decipher handwriting of the name of vessel on attached Petition for Naturalization #usa


Keren Weiner
 

Requesting your assistance with deciphering the handwriting on the attached Petition for Naturalization for Abraham HOROWITZ, who arrived in New York on 3 June 1899.  The description of the vessel reads in part "...to Quebec and via R.R. and boat to N.Y." but the first two words of the vessel are a mystery we could sure use your help to solve.    With thanks,

Keren,

Have you tried finding his passenger manifest entering Quebec?
I suggest doing a soundex search on the surname, and assume his first name may have been different.

Looks like the ship Dee or Off Upla or Ufla to Quebec and then by train to NY.
You need to search online for a correct possible ship and then go to stevemorse.org to search the Canadian
Passenger Manifests and the Canadian 
Border Crossings .

I managed to locate the full-size document on-line.  Based on the wife's name that I believe is Fannie, I think the initial letter of the ship name is 'F'

Could be Fee or Tee, also.

It is difficult to make out the second word, but I think the first word is not the name of a ship.   It is also difficult to determine the year
of passage although his second child was born in NY in 1902.    There were no ships on the North Atlantic run
with a short name like this beginning with F.   Bonsor's "North Atlantic Seaway" in the  index for F like this.

David, this is a great resource with lists and images, and I feel sure with some digging I will find him here.  Another great website to bookmark.

Sherri, I did not find Abraham Horowitz at the link you provided, BUT, I did find a cousin who came in a few years later and got some clues that I can track to another branch of the family.  Thank you so much!  And I'll bookmark that link.

re:  Paul Silverstone's referencing F.   Bonsor's "North Atlantic Seaway" 

These volumes look like a great resource to have, especially in this case.  I see several of them for sale individually on e-Bay and also as a five volume set.
Thank you Paul, and thank you to the group for these links and ideas.  Sleuths extraordinaire!
