Migration record for Majersdorf Elozor

I am referring to the record marked with an arrow.

Can someone tell me what do the numbers or letters in parenthesis after his name and before his birth date mean ?

Also on the extracted info on the left they say "Other: 1916" - Can anyone guess where they took this year from and what does it mean?

B.T.W - Just for reference if anyone is specifically interested in this record - IMHO the middle name for this person should be "Mordeko" (from Hebrew Mordechai) and not "Morako" (I have a birth record for him somewhere else).

  • I am aware of this document. I am looking for some information regarding Mordeci's parents. Is Mordeci from Warsaw or Pultusk. I am trying to connect up different parts of the Majersdorf families. Chaim Meiersdorf

The image shown in the question is from Ancestry's Belgium, Antwerp Police Immigration Index, 1840-1930. In the About section, one is directed to FamilySearch's wiki page, Belgium, Antwerp, Police Immigration (FamilySearch Historical Records)

  1. According to the FamilySearch wiki page, only the locality appears between the name and the birthdate. I don't see numbers after Pultusk, I see (P-). Just above, it looks like (G-), perhaps added as a correction. Together G- P- = Gr. Po. = Groot-Polen [Dutch] = Greater Poland

  2. Since the database includes the years 1840-1930, 1916 is probably the year your record was added. The image in the question does not include the headings, but the example image on the wiki page shows the page's year range. Perhaps this does not appear on every page, and you would have to browse backwards until you find the first page in the record sub-set. Alternatively, the image path descriptions may provide the date information.


The number 195012 is the file number of the Antwerp Police Report. Go to FamilySearch.org and look under Europe and Belgium. There you will find documents that can be browsed. Click on it and you will get a long list of documents. Find the one that contains 195012 and browse it until you find the file 195012. It contains a gold mine of information.
