Hi All,

Here's a ship's manifest for the ship, Polonia, which sailed August 5-19, 1932. The original passenger list is in Polish. There were some words that I was unable to figure out--maybe you can help??? Anyway,  I've tried to select the passengers who had names that "sounded" Jewish. Most of these individuals were from Warsaw, Lodz, and Lvov; but a few were from other parts of Poland as well. Any suggestions or corrections would be appreciated and helpful to all.

The passenger list is based on a brochure, "Polonia Passenger Lists on a North Sea Voyage in the Period from 5 August to 19 August 1932", published by "Polish Association of Ships' Transatlantic Linja Gdynia-America, 1932". Where possible, I have included names, occupations (in parentheses), and places of residence. This is a partial listing. The second part will be published in another blog later this week. I'd love to know if you have any success finding your relatives!!
