I have just joined the group. I am researching two German families. The NELSON family were German Jews from Emmendingen in Baden. They took the name NELSON when Jewish communities in that region were required to adopt common surnames. The WILSNACK family resided in Meyenburg, Prignitz, in Brandenburg. Both families emigrated to New York City in 1850. I have some experience in German research and have visited both cities, but I am still filling out many gaps in the family history.
Does anyone have Pust families in the Appleton, Benson Minnesota? Looking for family connection for August Pust b. Zehrten Prussia 1867 immigrated to USA Jan 1891. He married Johanna Brose in (nee Lucke) 1895 then the family moved to Canada on the Dominion Land Grants in 1904.
I am sorry to hear you had to close this down. I am taking a German `101 class on line and sometimes I believe a chat room helps those who are finding their families. Thank you for your good work Perileen and if you ever do start this or another site similar pls let me know
I am sorry this page and group is not more active. I had high hopes. I did manage to get the marriage certificate translated on Genealogy Translations.
My name is Brian Maclachlan from Australia and I am researching my wife's ancestors with the surname of Bamberger tracing some back to an area near Bamberg in the early 1800s. My research suggests that they migrated to England in the 1840s living in Middlesex and were of the Jewish faith. They later migrated to Australia. Any information appreciated.
I have a copy of a marriage certificate that is hand written in German. I am wondering what it says as we are trying to determine info on the groom.
Great info - first time I have had a good reply and this is great news and I will check it out. Many thanks.
For Perileen Smith--I have no idea how many riding schools might have been in Berlin around 1900--probably several--but I did find a very short article about a Royal riding school from that time--Neuer Marshall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuer_Marstall. I also found a blog about horses by a lady who seems to have done a lot of research. She may know the history of German riding schools. You could probably contact her directly and see if she responds. https://susannaforrest.wordpress.com/category/periods-of-history/19...
Is there any place to search out a "riding school" in Berlin around 1900 or before? My Grandfather is said to have owned one or taught Royalty to ride in one there and I have been unable to find any information.
For Helen Pust:
Ancestry.com probably has the most indexed records for US ports, so I'd try there first.
Otherwise, Wiki gives these instructions for finding manifests from ports other than NY--
"Other Ports of Entry. To find passenger lists for other ports, see United States, Bureau of Customs, Copies of Lists of Passengers Arriving at Miscellaneous Ports on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts and at Ports on the Great Lakes, 1820—73, under UNITED STATES - EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION in the FamilySearch Catalog Place Search (on 16 Family History Library films). Other ports include Oswegatchie (1821–23), Sag Harbor (1829–34), and Rochester (1866). For indexes to these lists, see United States, Bureau of Customs, Supplemental Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Atlantic and Gulf Coast Ports (Excluding New York [City]), 1820–1874, under:
UNITED STATES - EMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION - INDEXES (on 188 Family History Library films beginning with film 418161).
Some records recently made available at the National Archives include:
