Moscow 19th Century Jewish Research #russia #records

Abby Schmelling

I am researching a Jewish family of distillers in Moscow who had to leave in 1891 when the Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich became Governor General of Moscow whose goal was “to save Moscow from the Jews”. The family went to Hamburg where they left the following January 1892 for the United States. Are there any records to research for their lives before they left or how to determine how they got to Moscow and from where?

Abby, I also have family that gained special permission to move from the Pale to Moscow in the 19th century and who were evicted in 1891. I provide information on the Jewish community at the Moskva Kehila Link. Check it out!
