Re: What Documents did Russian Jewish Immigrants need to enter US #general
Ken Drabinsky <kenjdgen@...>
from the large number of excellent comments on this topic, it begs toask the question - Is there a definitive research paper/report/reference
which discusses this topic in regard to Russian (+other countries)
emigration to U.S. and Canada/Australia etc. for that matter.
If not, I propose that a SIG or JewishGen-sponsored study by someone with
credentials do some additional research or at the very least summarize this
very important information for future researchers.
1. This topic re: U.S. entry has been discussed in the Discussion Archives
as early as 2003: (Gladys Friedman PAULIN CGRS July 17, 2003).
2. Check out the JewishGen Manifest Markings Article by Marian L. SMITH
