Locating a Passengers (Harry & Fanny Harris) Arriving in the US at the Eve of WWI #usa #hungary #general #slovakia #records
I am hoping someone might offer a suggestion or assistance in finding the arrival of a couple to the US.
Harry (Tzvi / Hersh) Harris, born 1891 in Scranton, PA, was a student at the yeshiva in Carlsbad (today known as Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic). He married in August of 1914, probably in Zalacska (Zalužice), Slovakia, to Fanny (Feiga / Faigy) Handler, daughter of Moshe Handler and Malka Greunfeld (Malks'a family was from Michalovce, Slovakia).
It appears that there was some type of notice issued by the USA advising all citizens abroad to return home due to the currents of WWI. Both Harry and Fanny did return, perhaps not together. What I do know is:
Would anyone have suggestions about finding their early World War I arrival manifests?
