I have a picture of George Scales and Chino Smith in Puerto Rico in 1926 that would like to donate to your website.

Ah, Berthum Hunter--that's a good one. Oddly enough I had him in the 1920 & 1930 census already (I had the Phoenix connection through a couple of newspaper items), but had not seen the passenger lists. I see his name was "Berthum" all three times--I was never sure what it was, exactly (Berthon, Bertran, Bertrum...).


There is new stuff from the 1930 passenger lists too. A couple weeks ago, I found Berthum Hunter (born October 20, 1910, Phoenix, Arizona) easily (and was able to track him in the 1920 and 1930 Censuses). I remember searching for hours with no luck at all for him a couple of years ago after reading his obit in a Mexican magazine.

Yep, I did see that! I've got quite a bit of new info from 1920s Cuban passenger lists--I'll be writing most of it up soon.


As I'm sure you also noted, that Puerto Rican manifest also lists a birth date for Elias (Country) Brown [Bryant]. Fantastic!
