Re: Why St. Louis? #usa


My great aunt, newly married at age 18, emigrated from Belagorodka to St Louis before 1900.  She had many relatives from Zaslav [and Shepetovka] some of whom joined her in the early years.  Her husband [Icheal/Israel Rich] had kin who were in St Louis.  I suspect that as has been mentioned, St Louis was seen as a hub of opportunity and discussed well in advance of immigration.
