Dear J. Seron,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Passenger and Crew Lists of Vessels Arriving at New York, New York, 6/16/1897 - 7/3/1957 (T715) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85) that may include the lists of SS Adriatic for Sydney Bass arrival and admission into the United States on January 13, 1911. We also located the Subject Index to Correspondence and Case Files, 1903 - 3/31/1957 (T458) that serves as an index to part of the Subject and Policy Files, 1906 - 1957 in the in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85), which may include a record of the BSI appeal hearings for the passengers of the Adriatic in 1911 and any complaints lodged by him. For more information about the non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we located the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain information about Sydney Bass in New York living with his wife Ella and mother-in-law. For more information about the non-digitized schedules, please also contact RDT1.
For information about the U.S. Census, see the Census Bureau technical documentation and questionnaires as well as NARA’s page on Census Records.
You may wish to search Ancestry or FamilySearch for the U.S. Census. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We suggest that you contact the New York State Archives to request a search for marriage and death certificates for Sydney Bass who died in 1924. You may wish to note any name variants for them or broaden your search for the surrounding years. Plus, the FamilySearch Research wiki for New York Vital Records may be of use.
Information and/or resources about his life in England before he emigrated to the United States, we suggest you contact The National Archives of the United Kingdom, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU, United Kingdom.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
