Immigrant and steerage inspection card of Sophie Elias
Gift of Julia Schwartz
Id no. 148.89, Document, English
15-year-old Sophie Elias traveled from her home in Kastoria (then part of the Ottoman Empire) via Trieste, Italy to the United States. "Martha Washington," stamped on the top left, is the name of the ship on which she traveled. The card also bears a stamp from the U.S. Consulate and a stamp from health inspection upon arrival, dated December 6, 1911. On the card Elias?s name is listed as Simha Assael, perhaps because she came with her aunt, whose last name was Assael.
