Family History Today: It's Hard to Say Goodbye - Challenges Faced by Eastern European Jewish Emigrants – Live on Zoom

Emily Garber, professional genealogist/Jewish genealogy blogger, will focus on a rarely if ever discussed but nonetheless crucial part of the Jewish emigration experience, the journey of Eastern European Jews from their homes to the ships between 1880-1914. Ms. Garber will answer questions including: What were the emigration requirements? Where, how, and from whom did they purchase passage? How did the emigrants know how to get from their shtetls to the ports? Did they receive any help along the way?
