Jim Bennett asked:

My great grandfather Samuel COHN >from Wloclawek and
Pyzdry [both Poland], and later Posen Province, Prussia,
reached New York in 1898, bearing $3000.

What would be the relative value of that sum today
For comparative values, consult the website: "How
Much is That" -- it contains a variety of tools for translating
historical dollar amounts into current ones.
