Israel Nesson was a 2nd class passenger from Russia who perished on the Titanic. Since Nesson was a name made up in America, I am interested in trying to find out if he had been to America and had returned to Russia. Does anyone know how to find out his relatives, etc. Thanks

Hi, Jeff,
Have you tried www.ancestry.com? I found eleven generations of my family that way and it didn't cost me anything. All the information I have is that Israel Nesson listed his residence as Boston, MA and was 26 when he perished. It is possible that he was traveling to America for the first time and had a sponsor or relatives waiting for him in Boston. Or it could be as you suggested.

I saw your reply from all those years ago re Israel Nesson but how can his wife have married his brother? That isn't allowed in Jewish law, only in Biblical times you had the levirate marriage where a brother died childless. If he had no children, then his brother would have had to perform the chalitza ceremony to enable the widow to remarry.

Still trying to figure out where my name came from. Using Ancestry.com, I found my grandfather's marriage certificate from NYC. He lists his parents name as Nesson on the form. However, as far as my father remembers, his grandparents never made it to America. However, there were Nesson's in Massachusetts as early as 1870's. Haven't been able to trace them back to Russia. Also, haven't figured out how Israel fits into the family tree yet.

Israel Nesson origin surname was Nejnii.
He was born in Bogopol,Balta district ,Podolia,Russian Empire.
He emigrated to US about 1903-1904 , came back to Russia in 1908 and married to Elisheva Kolker,the sister my great-grandfather.
They should have come US by Germany , they bought 2 tickets, but Israel decided to come by London.
Elisheva died in 1919.She hasn't children.
