Welcome to History Hub
Click on the following link to get a list of Moltke passengers for the year 1903 and other years
I checked but did not find the name Bartholomew Golankiewicz but I could have missed it.
There is an outgoing passenger list on Ancestry but it begins in 1914.
In 1891, the new US legislation required the boat to pay the return travel for people not admitted in US, even if stowaways were still admitted. found this information at Stowaway - Wikipedia, I would think the Captain of the ship would be responsible
for the welfare of the returning passenger until returning to the port of departure, most likely he would then turn him over to local government. On the incoming passenger list his contact is his son in law living in NYC by the name of Jan Tha??ers. On a search in UK and Ireland, Incoming Passenger Lists, 1878-1960 on Ancestry I found information which may be useful see attachment.
Thank you so much, Timothy. Your information is very helpful! I will follow up on the Wiki stowaway site, which I had not thought to look up.
Bartholomew was meeting his son-in-law, Jan Majewski as you noted from the 1903 manifest.
I have not seen the J Golankiewicz on any searches of Ancestry or Ellis Island sites, but I believe it could be refering to John Vincent Golankiewicz, who is one of Bartholomew's sons. But, if so, he was likely traveling with someone else since he would have been only about 13 at the time.
I will report back a followup from your leads. Judy
HI Timothy, I have followed up on your suggestions! The Wikipedia article on Stowaways that you mentioned lead me to the original article in the Ancestry Magazine from Jan/Feb 2003 and a great article by John Philip Colletta entitled "Proving Family Lore on the High Seas". What a treasure of information! I am such a novice that I did not even know of the Ancestry Magazine! Anyway, Bartholomew had a hearing and was prevented from entry and apparently shipped out on a different ship, the Moltke, but so far I haven't located a manifest for it in 1903.
I don't think it is likely that the J. Golenkiewicz that you found going to the UK from the US in 1903 is our John Vincent Golankiewicz who arrived with Bartholomew Golankiewicz in the US in Jun 1902 at the age of 9. But I have saved the record just in case further information suggests otherwise.
Thanks again, for your time and helpful suggestions, Judy
Thanks, Alice I will check the "One Step" Ship Search Results (stevemorse.org) that you mentioned. It is new to me. I have the passenger manifest that you also listed but I appreciate your efforts. Judy
I found someone with the same name on findagrave, is he a relative
After looking at the 1903 passenger list I have concluded and I may be wrong, but
I don't think that the light colored writing on the manifest pertains to your relative, especially the Francis
and the part about senility.
Also the Jan that is referred to is probably Jan Majewski and he is listed as Bartholomew Golankiewicz son-in-law.
Here is a notice of death for John and Sophie Majewski's son. sophie Golankiewicz Search Results (familysearch.org)
I am curious to know where you got the information that he was deported on the ship Moltke???
Just my opinion,.
Hi again Alice! The grave for "Bart" Golankiewicz is the great-great grandson of the Batholomew I was asking about. It can be confusing when families recycle first names like the Golankiewicz's have.
That 1903 manifest of alien passengers from the Belgravia, which came from the Ellis Island database is a bit difficult to decipher. I don't know what the "Francis" refers to or even that it really says "Francis". The word senility seems clear and looks to me to be within the lines of other info. Moreover, it is supported by a document labeled as " Record of Aliens Held for Special Inquiry", which I obtained from Ancestry for the arrival of the Belgravia. This record is clear and says a doctor certified Bartholomew Golankiewicz as senile and that he left the country 11/6/1903 on the "Moltke" destination unknown. I am still searching for the manifest for the Moltke sailing on 11/6/1903.

The Moltke sailed from New York on 7 Nov 1903. First class passengers were sometimes listed in newspapers, but none of the other passengers were listed in newspapers.
[from the Sun & New York Press 7 Nov 1903]
The Hamburg-American Lines are now part of HAPAG-Lloyd, a container shipping company https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hapag-Lloyd.
To my knowledge no arrival records in Hamburg exist, but you might want to contact HAPAG to see where any records from 1903 might be.
Dear Ms. Kapp,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
When your ancestor arrived and failed medical inspection, he was not formally admitted to the United States, but detained and given a brief hearing in front of the Board of Special Inquiry (BSI). Lists of detained aliens are often located at the end of a passenger manifest and include notations regarding meals provided, etc. We suggest that you check the end of the manifest for details about his Board of Special Inquiry (BSI) hearing. For background on manifest notations, please see Manifest Markings - Left Margin and Manifest Markings - Board of Special Inquiry
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Subject Index to Correspondence and Case Files, 1903 - 3/31/1957 (Microfilm Publication T458) in the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85) that serves as an index to part of the Subject and Policy Files, 1906 - 1957 In Record Group 85) which may include a record of the BSI hearing. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
As the previous poster mentioned, after failing the BSI hearing and informed of their exclusion, immigrants were deported at the expense of the steamship company. Details of Bartholomew Golankiewicz’s return trip, including if he had an escort, may be in the records of his BSI hearing.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Thanks for your detailed response Cara! As you will see in my response to Alice's questions above, we have located the detention record for Bartholomew stating that he was declared senile and shipped out on the Moltke four days after his arrival. I will definitely follow up on your suggestion to look for his record at the National Archives in DC. I have tried to negotiate that website and find it somewhat intimidating but your suggestions about the trail to follow should help a lot. I will post any follow up information that I find particularly the details of the BSI hearing.
You have been a big help, Cara! Judy
