Manhattan #general


Peter Zimmer <Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...>
 

Hi list,

I have information >from the 1900 census that 3 brothers of my
greatgrandmother emigrated to America and lived in Manhattan. Their names
were Ludwig, Oskar and Robert Lang. They came at the end of the 19th
century and were married by 1900 and already had children.
They lived at 521E. and 517 E. 11th Ave. Was or is this area a typical
area for jewish immigrants >from Austria? Where might I be able to find
information about these people and their decendants.
Where might they be burried? Is it possible to find cemetery list online to
search for them? Germany is so far away to know all this!!
Anybody who can assist me with all my questions? American Genealogy is new
to me. Perhaps I can help with questions and problems in Europe, specially
Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

Peter

There is no East 11th Avenue. Perhaps you mean 11th Street. Many
Jewish people lived in that general area at the beginning of the 20th
Century. I think the best way for you to start is to look at the City
Directory for New York for the early 20th Century. There probably is a
Family History Center (Mormon) somewhere in Germany (Check the Web).
They can help you access the microfilm of the directories.
