JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Mile End, London (in response to Fraida Cohen) #general

Dear Fraida,

The district of London you couldn’t read is Mile End Old Town. Mile End had
Old Town & New Town subdistricts, which were sometimes known as MEOT & MENT.
Mile End was a district of the East End of London centred around Whitechapel
Road and was home to many thousands of Jews in the late 19th & early 20th
centuries. My grandmother was born in MEOT in 1913. These days, I think the
registration distract that covers Mile End is called Tower Hamlets, hence
the reference to “Hamlet”.

Hope this clarifies things for you a little,

Saul Marks
