Galveston as port of entry to USA #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>

There are two booklets in Yiddish which should be of interest to people
whose ancestors came to the US via Galveston, Texas. Volume two,
" Emigrantn lebn in Galveston," (Kiev: Jewish Emigration Society, 1912)
contains lists of emigrants, hometowns, where they settled in US,
occupations, and weekly wages. It is available at Hebrew Union College
Library, Cincinnati, Ohio. The first volume is " Vos hot unz gegebn di
Galvestaner emigratsye?" (Warsaw, 1910) It is mentioned in volume two,
but I have been unable to track it down.
