I would like to thank all those who posted information about the
Industrial Removal Office and especially Bette Stoop Mas, who posted
the link to the index.
I knew that my maternal grandfather had come to Indianapolis, Indiana
(another "western" city easily accessible by train) shortly after
arriving in NYC in 1906 and that his employment there had been secured
by a Jewish organization, but I didn't know the name of the
organization until now.
I searched the IRO index online, and there he was, with date of
relocation, box, ledger and page numbers! I plan to visit the archives
at the Center for Jewish History and see what other genealogical gems
are contained in that ledger.
