  1. Family Immigration Pattern

Aron Deckelbaum (#P17) arrived to the port of Baltimore on December 28, 1905 aboard the steamer CASSEL. He was a 42-year old, married man, earning his living as a tailor. His destination in America was to his cousin M. Holke at 836 E. Pratt Street in Baltimore. His last place of residence was in Lutzk, Russia.

Aron’s wife and child arrived the port of Baltimore on July 23, 1910, aboard the steamer Main. Chane Deckelbaum (#P45) was age 28 years old and her daughter Beile was age 3. Chane was born in Luzk, Russia, and Beile was born in Melin, Russia. Their last place of residence was in Luzk, and the closest relative they had left behind was Chane’s father Jossel Deckelbaum (?) in Luzk. Their destination in America was to Chane’s husband Henry Deckelbaum who was living at 836 E. Pratt Street in Baltimore. There is a notation on the passenger record which reads: "C/A iss Balto 8-27-51 AL 588 486."

There is a misleading passenger index entry for the port of Philadelphia which shows Chane Deckelbaum, a 28-year old married male, last residence Luzk, arriving on July 14, 1910 on the "Frankfurt" from Bremen. Chane had left behind his father Jossef Chaiti in Luzk, and was going to his father Harry Deckelbaum at 836 E. Pratt Street. He was traveling with Beile, a 3-year old male. This entry is crossed out on the record.
