Re: Who was Cousin Jossel A in Philadelphia? #usa


i second the suggestion about the boat records. For me they are a total goldmine of information and helped link my mother’s maternal family together.  You can see who the money was sent to, how much it cost, what boat they came on, the address of the person sending the money (often more than one relative as they banded together), and the names of all the passengers. I’ve been saving screenshots of all of the many ticket records for my family in this collection.
