Hamburg Handwritten Index to Actual Ship Record Help

Hamburg Handwritten Index to Actual Ship Record Help

I watched a barefoot genealogist episode recently where she talked about the Hamburg Handwritten Indexes. I dug into one and found one of my relatives, Antonus Zvingis. He's listed in 1924, with page (seite) 11-27.

Now I can seem to figure out how to get the ship record from there.

Any help is appreciated.

I don't think it's going to be an easy search..

Best to provide a YOB...

Or look for his Naturalization documents.. had he applied.

I wish I had some of that. I have pictures of him, and some stories, and that's about it. The name is unique enough ( bing it, I'm the only one searching ) that I'm pretty sure its him.

I think I'll wind up hand walking the 1924 hamburg ship records. Could cost me a few bottles of wine!

Thanks for the dialog.

The Hamburg Lists have only been indexed up to 1914. For the others you would need to open any list, click on the date in the upper left of the viewing box a drop down will appear with a list of years, click on the year and then the month, if you don't know the month you would need to go through each page of each list.

What was Antonus destination?

Re Antonus destination.
First possibility - New York, Brooklyn, Williamsburg - big squad of his folks there.
Second possibility - Buenos Ares. His sisters were living there - still working on unraveling that part.
Greet dialog, thanks...
