Polish Jews to England 1900
« on: Thursday 14 October 04 08:23 BST (UK) »
A friend of mine is trying to find out more about why his Jewish ancestors came to London in 1900 from Kutno (now Poland)

Any help appreciated

Hi Gill,

Are you just looking for the "why" ? That's hard !

It sounds like you need to know more of the history of the region first.
I listed a few polish sites in "Sharing useful links: Germany & E.Europe"
Have you tried these yet ? / already ?

For "jewish" AND "polish" check out the Galicia Sites as well.

especially http://www.halgal.com/index.htm

This link, a history site, could provide lots of background info.
as well: http://www.zum.de/whkmla/region/region.html
in particular http://www.zum.de/whkmla/region/xeurope19.html

Could you publish any names and dates ? This might help to find more, and that may help to explain the "why"

Good Luck !
