Re: Philadelphia Bank Immigrant Passage Records online #records

The Jewish Genealogical and Archival Society of Greater Philadelphia indexed the records of the Lipshutz/People's Bank back in 2004 and donated the indices to JewishGen. The writeup about these records can be found at It appears that Temple University should also have Bank records from 1906 through May 1923. It looks like these records were also microfilmed by FamilySearch, the genealogy arm of the Church of Latter Day Saints. You can always contact your local Family History Center to view the Lipshutz/People's Bank records after finding the records of interest to you through a search of the JewishGen USA Database.

Records of the Blitzstein, Rosenbaum, Lipschutz/Peoples and Rosenbluth "banks" have been digitized and are online at On that site, digitized records of the Lipschutz/People's Bank begin only with May, 1923. Does anyone know whether earlier records of the Lipschutz/Peoples Bank are online anywhere? Thank you.
