Re: Your family history.


Thank you very much, Graham. That info, btw, came basically from my late father's own written words I copied down mostly word-for-word on this thread.

Also, he mentioned a decade, which means ten years, from 1900-1910, which narrows the time down quite abit, don't you agree? For which to know which records, passenger & crew list (preferrably 1st Class)...as for the name(s) of ship(s), I am completely in the dark abt. this, b/c I haven't the foggiest idea what their names could be, to look into.

Could Tifles, Russia, b/c of its Black Sea location, be considered a port, which to sail out of? As for southern Germany, I'm still out on this one...since she is completely hemmed-in in a landlock, geographically speaking, by France, the Netherlands, and Belgium. This leads me to Jack Van Impe Presents's Dr. Jack's Belgium relatives, for example, whom went to Southampton to board Titanic on 3rd-Class tickets, so they too could sail to New York. I wonder too, if my grandmother, Elsa Walters, also did same (but "way" B4...) this Van Impe family did, inorder to sail (not on Titanic) for New York?

That "really" narrows down the ports for which my grandparents sailed out of, doesn't it?

Wonder if Lights would be more apt to help me out with this?

Also, can this "The Ships List" be found on the Internet?

HI TAmmy

Yes it does narrow the ports down a bit.Your main problem is the decade, A lot of ships and different ships will of sailed from many different ports that may of been sailed from. Like I say try the cindy list, it has a search engine for the site and you type your name that you are looking for and it will cross refrence that name with any passenger list they have. Same on the ship list.

Again any help you may need just ask

Hi Wills

The biggest problem Tammy has is narrowing her search down a bit, ten years is a long time in a search for someone, especially that far back when ship travel was the normal thing.

Re: Your family history.


you a right there graham.

when someone starts to look into family trees they need to be comepletely devoted to
finding the answer.

it takes a long time and a lot of hard work.
a lot of people get discouraged and quit. i dont want that for tammy. it does get a bit overwhelming looking in to things like that but it is a satisfying feeling when you find what you are looking for.

Re: Your family history.


HI Wills

I agree with you whole hearted, It is daunting when you start to look back over time, It all seems so easy to start with then you hit a barrier and all seems a waste of time till the next lead presents itsellf. Like I say 10 years is a big gap to find a ship and a person. It can be done just needs to be broke down a bit.


I hope Tammy does find what she is looking for it is a long road ahead and very time consuming.

Re: Your family history.


I looked over at Cindy's Ships List, but was faced with a long list that didn't go anywhere. What I hate is, having to pay first (and don't own a credit card) before a search can be done. Now that totally sucks!!! emoticon

Re: Your family history.


HI Tammy

I am sorry I did not know cindys list had turned into a pay site, I thaught you could still search there for free. Yes if you want to go into the geo lines already done then a payment was needed, I again apologise as I had no idea a search there now cost money.

Ok did you try the ship list, that can help you in finding the ships of the time, sailing times and dates, and ports of the time. It used to have a link as well to lots of other places to use.

I think for your searches I would tend to look more towords the German line ships. I feel this may be a good base for you to start. Again I point out that ten years ios a long time and you may be better trying to find a better time frame to start from. I know this is not always possable but you never know. Have you tried the local library for the place they lived. If like here a lot of documentation is held there on past people. And if he made a will it will be loged somewhere. Tax records etc. are all held in masses of computer banks.

Local company search, Register of deaths and births, There is many different lines and cindys place is just one of them. I hope you still keep searching it is not a easy task but like Wills say a big satisfaction comes with it on the smallest of detail you dig up.

Wills yes I hate sights like that but then again they spend a lot of money sometimes in setting these up and have to recoup some way. Look at a researcher, he can charge anything like 50 pound a hour here. And you do not get much research done in a hour. It apears they do not all give it away like some of us do :-)

Re: Your family history.


Library? By that you mean, as in a local LDS Family History Center, that may be able to help me? Yes, we do have that here in town, and yes...I would like to pay them a visit, just to find out why they keep the doors locked all the time. You have to press a button outside, in order for them come to let you in.

Up in Grants Pass, Oregon, at our local LDS FHC, we never encountered that problem. Why they do it here, is beyond me, for I find it to be downright discouraging. emoticon emoticon
