Re: [S-R] Re: Ellis Island Records are a specific abbreviated index -not the actual
- Hi Peggy:
I really know how confusing this all can be for a beginner, so maybe I can
explain. Frank was saying that there are eight thousands rolls to look at
for PLs NYC (Passenger Lists for NYC) for the periods between 1897-1957,
that is what is available to the general public at the FHC. However; the
film you need to order is Roll 109 Volumes 182-183 Beginning Dates March 23
1900. Now, your question "Is Pavlovce anywhere near Mast?" is a good one,
maybe Frank can answer that one too. I am not as expert as most of the
people on this list but I would like to try and help.
Also, I agree with John that he was going to Bridgeport, Conn. I kinda
thought that was the place, but did not want to give you a bad lead, so is
there any association with Bridgeport that you know of? One last thing is
that it looked to me that his last residents was Poland.
Peggy ( My name is the same as yours)

WOW! I had no idea! They looked so real to me..... but what do I know.
I do not live near a reliable FHC. Is there another way I could get these
I don't quite understand, the items you listed below, would I need to order
all of these? I don't really think I have enough time left to go through all
those! All 8,892 rolls! yikes!
