Which website has records of money transfer requests from Russian/Ukranian jews to American relatives? #poland #general #russia

For the life of me, I cannot remember which organization arranged money transfers to Eastern Europe from Americans. I know that my relatives (the Finkelsteins) asked for funds to come to the US from their cousin Abraham Sukoenig/Koenig in 1919 or 1920,  and I have seen a record of the request, but I can't find it on my computer or on the internet. Could someone please save me from myself and remind me which organization this was?

many thanks

JDC - American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee - See https://archives.jdc.org/.  There are 329 results for Finkelstein.  And as a JDC volunteer, I can tell you that we have indexed many Remittance Lists - lists of funds that went people, mostly in Eastern Europe.

Good luck.

Hi Nancy,

Could you be thinking of this database?
Philadelphia Bank Immigrant Passage Records, 1890-1949

Hi Nancy, I think you are referring to the banks located in Philadelphia which handled all American-paid tickets: 
 See https://digital.library.temple.edu/digital/custom/blitzsteinbank

A digital collection of forty-four ledgers that record the sale of tickets by steamship agents operating in Philadelphia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The four agents represented in this collection, M.L. Blitzstein & Co., M. Rosenbaum & Co., Pennsylvania Company for Banking and Trust, and Rosenbluth Brothers, are a mix of private immigrant and state run banks, and travel agencies. The steamship ticket purchase ledgers are document the purchase of tickets for passage to and from America primarily for the purposes of immigration, Passengers were booked to arrive at various ports including New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore.

Theoratically a snapshot would work but it will result in it being very small and hard to read.

Linda, 
Can you please provide a search strategy for accessing these Remittance Lists online?  Are they found in any particular collection?
Many thanks,

In 2010 I was one of several contributors indexing records for JDC. Included were Remittance Lists names.  Today I checked a few names that I know should be there, and they were.

There is a search box on the JDC website.

In addition to the bank records in Philadelphia which you can search at the Temple University Library -  Jewish Archives,  you should also check

the Archives of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee at:

https://names.jdc.org
     or    
https://archives.jdc.org/ 

The JDC has a data base of over 500,000 names which includes lists of individuals who are requesting aid.   You can just put in a name and it will search the full data base.
The lists for people requesting aid contain names and addresses, etc. so this web site can be a terrific source if you locate someone.

The JDC database is probably not used as much as it should be.  There are also archives of photographs and other information.

Look at https://archives.jdc.org/ and scroll down to Names Index and do a search on your names. 
 
Look at https://archives.jdc.org/our-collections/names-index/lists-in-the-names-index/ for a list of remittance lists.  But you search via the Names Index.

This is amazing. I found a family transfer on my very first try!! Thanks so much for this information as it gave me the name of the town where my grandfather grew up and also, for future research, a possible spelling of the family's last name.
