To The Descendants of Israel Ostroy and Bessie Kernel:

This additional data, was obtained by Cousin Lester Ostroy.

Lester went to the Ellis Island Web Site and was able to

download the following 2 pages of data.

PAGE "1 of 1" ALL ENTRIES IN 1921, REFER TO OUR OSTROY"S. Lists:

1....ie Ostroy(you could add Bess—age 33, so in my report I said(born 1878, make that 1888)



2. A1....Ostroy—— age 9.. so he might have (been born in 1912

3. Elli Ostroy———age 65.. I believe that this person is actually Anna Kemel (the mother of Bessie Ostroy... but by changing her name she becomes the mother of Israel Ostroy.. and can therefore Enter USA, as mother of a citizen. SO OUR GREAT-GRANDMOTHER, WAS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN, WHO ENTERED ON A FALSE IDENTITY.

5.I...1 Ostroy——age 7 you could add URS( Probably Oscar Ostroy )(Now born in 1914.

6.Iva Ostroy,(Eva Efman,age 17, so now born in 1904.
12.Riva Ostroy, ( Rebecca Edelman, I know she was called Riva, by all of her old relatives in Russia. age 16, so now born 1905

FINALLY.... WHO IS # 14...Ostroy.... age 8.. was somebody

else in our family, was someone smuggled in ???

I MAY HAVE TO GO TO ELLIS ISLAND PERSONALLY TO CHECK THIS OUT.

"PASSENGER RECORD"

Here is produced a copy of the "Manifest For Mauretania" ( The manifest is the record of the ships passengers and

cargo.)

As I stated in the booklet, this ship the Mauretania, was the sister ship of the Luistania( sunk by German submarine)

So now we know from the record that Lester obtained, that they all arrived on May 7, 1921, and that they sailed out of the port of Southhampton, in England. .

On"Page 2 of 2 " we see listed by number on the manifest #22, probably "Oscar Ostroy, a male(M), age 7y(7 years) "U"( probably-Unmarried) But not listed as "S"-single No note as to "Ethnicity" or (last) Place of residence.

#23. ...ie Ostroy( Bessie Ostroy) a female(F), "M"(married) "Ethnic Roumanian, Bucarest, Roumania

#24 Iva Ostroy,(Eva Efman),female, age 17, single, Roumania *here is added a religion "Hebr.,, from Bucarest

#25 Riva Ostroy( Rebecca Edelman) female, age 16,Roumania Hebr., from Bucarest

#26. Al Ostroy, male age 9, Roumanian, from Bucarest

#27. WHO IS THIS ??????



#28 Elli Ostroy( probably, Bubby Anna Kernel, smuggled in as a female 65 year old widow, as the mother of Israel Ostroy, instead of the mother of Bessie Ostroy, also from Roumania, Bucarest.

3.

So all of you can add this additional information to the previous knowledge(?)as stated in the booklet.



Let me however emphasize, very strongly, that this documented information should be understood in the context of the following;

A. These people were coming from Russia, and obviously they indicated they were from Romania, most likely because, Russia was in upheaval, from its revolution and the War, maybe identity papers were not available or lost, no one used birth certificates in those days. They wanted to enter the USA, and not be returned, so whatever was necessary they did. All ages and dates probably were adjusted to fit the circumstances.

B. Now more than 80 years later, these records were examined by the Mormons, and collected as data, by them(More officially called the Church of the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). It's obvious that they were unable to decipher some of the names, and thus used.... or spaces, and for all we know may have miss-transcribed some numbers... I have heard some complaints made against their efforts... although it's fantastic to see that the records do exist..

C. As to why Bessie's sister Elka is not listed, she was married and her husband's name was Gladstone, so they probably came in under those names.

So lets give a great big thanks to Lester, for getting this amazing addition to our family history.
