    port called Libau and boarded a ship on the 15th August called "SS Smolensk"heading for New York
    USA. On arrival on Sept 14th 1906 at Ellis Island were they where due to be met by a Brother in Law
    Mr Belitzky of New York(this is recorded on the ships manifest), They had to go through a immigration
    process, it is written on the ships manifest (records @ Ellis Island) that Harry was hospitalised and the
    whole family where refused entry and deported back on the same boat where it appears the boat
    stopped in London in October 1906 where they were put off possibly because there was another child
    (Millie) who entered the world 14th October and that will have been within a very short time of the boat
    arriving in London on its way back to Libau (about 3 weeks journey time)
    The family stayed in London for approx 10 years before moving to the North of England.
    Joseph worked as recorded in the 1911 census as a Squirrel Furrier

    When they came to Leeds approx 1916 they lived at 6a Stamford Street which was on the fringe of the
    Leylands.

    Joseph & Esther left Russia and arrived in London Sept 1906 on the ship Smolensk,via Ellis Island
