Re: Travel from Palestine early 1900s #general


Rose Feldman
 

From the little I have been able to find is that people traveling to the US did it in two stages.  There were ships that traveled around the Mediterranean and people traveled from Palestine to a port that was also visited by ships that sailed to the US.  I have not seen any lists of people leaving Palestine. Even during the British Mandate, we have yet to find lists of people leaving. 
 
Many of the companies that owned these ships no longer exist.  If you know the name of the company try looking for their archive. If you find it I would appreciate your letting me know.
