Ship's manifest

SS Freisland, sailing from Liverpool, England on November 9, 1910
Arrived in Phildelphia November 21 - a twelve day crossing.

Minnie is listed as Mindel, 44 years old, able to read and write and for "Race or People" she was Hebrew. Below her name will be found Mische (14 years), Sore (10), Leif (8) and Ruche (11 months). To see page 30 of the manifest, click here.

Sam is not found on the manifest. But the facing page (31) says:
"Husband S. Klausner 2528 East 30th Street. Cleveland Oh" then follows a hard-to-read note "Husband five months .... 2 weeks ago"
So Sam had gone on ahead!
