I was browsing other blogs and saw the Ideas/ Categories floating around for better blogging. One of them was to use different Search engines for the same item to be searched. I never made it that far to use another Search engine.
I took a little browsing cruise trip from My Heritage Genealogy blog, [listed below] and went to blog finder that he mentions in one of his posts as you scroll down. [These are supplied by each with permission for their services. Mine are not entered so therefor not shown] I think that place is my new favorite site.
I was suddenly curious if there are any German Genea bloggers. So I went international and ended here.http://www.abenteuer-ahnenforschung.de/ I think that is as far as I went for the time being. I gave up the German GeneaBlogger idea. So Then I hopped up to Ancestry.de and proceeded with Meyer. One thing led to another and I was at the Hamburg Passenger list. One name led to another and I was with the name Seil on the Hamburg Passenger lists. [Ancestry searching takes a lot of patience any way and this grouping does take a lot more. I am hate to say it, but mine ran out too quickly at five in the morning. tee hee]
Now you know on the Hamburg Passenger lists that it is the date they leave Hamburg which you hope to find. It does not give you the date of Arrival. We have to look in a different passenger list for that. Or Castle Garden is just as good. Ancestry is designed to give you a lot of leeway. Where as another searching form for Passenger lists may differ and it helps to use both. In this case arrival to New York. 7.05.1883.
It was my intention to look into Elise Seil the subject of several Blogs this last week. It was no surprise to me that it was there. and I will still study her passenger list some more at a later time. [Elise Seil - 27 Mai 1892].
The reason we make such a big deal about these passenger lists is that it hopefully offers us the location of our ancestors. If we have something to go on, it really helps to know for sure that this is the right person. Elise (Lizzie) Seil says Gross Thondorf in the German language. So I look at all of these to find the location often stated right out front. And It helps to see what their destination is. Your lucky if it is specific.
But my eye caught on a Heinrich Seil born about 1860, who traveled- 22.April.1883 on ship Rugia.
A Heinrich SEIL born about 1859 and the AHRENS along with the SCHROEDERS have also been part of many blogging conversations dealing with the huge Subject of Farnhamville colony settlers, and Oldendorf und Nahrendorf colonists. According to Richard Kanning and Robert Stein Tree those Schroeders are listed from Duebbekold. And the fact that these passengers are from Mucklingen near enough to thrill me. You can happy dance for me if you like. I'll just be happy colorfully.
So here I am now with Heinrich Seil in 1883 age 23. From Mucklingen. If you google Mucklingen
You can click this link and find it is in Nahrendorf district
as you can see here the exact loction.

I admit I have seen this group before and you probably have too. It is nice though to have it recorded here for review and we can see it when ever we want.
Comments: I should get the whole list recorded or saved.
That name Annie Strauss really threw me. She is probably somebodies parent. Or not.
I have an interest in the name Warnecke. I should share why another day.
Comments: There is Henry Seil of this age Of best fit in next census of 1900 and in Iowa 1885, 1895. The other Henry Seil of 1900 census are born Kentucky, New york, Louisiana, etc. Our Henry Seil who is in the Nahnsen/ Meyer tree resided at Reading Township, Calhoun county Iowa. He married Mary Ahrens from Bleckede.
Your thinking -- so what's the point, I could have found this almost as easy at ancestry.com.
It's true, but I like how easy it is to put in the locations. I may use this German version a few times. I was surprised that it easily accepts your login in name. If your familiar with the format at ancestry, language isn't that much of a problem. I wonder if you could have two windows - one the English version and the second the German version - open at the same time?
You can see it here transcribed.
Dont hold your breath, I will be back
