The Blitzstein Bank Passage Order Book Records Database for the Port of Philadelphia and Other US East Coast Ports
The original records of four immigrant banks, the Blitzstein Bank, Rosenbaum Bank, Rosenbluth Bank and Lipshutz Bank, formerly operating in Philadelphia. The records "offer unique kinds of information, including the name and US address of the person who paid for the tickets, port of entry - usually, but not always the port of Philadelphia – and intended final destination (again, not necessarily Philadelphia)." "All four of the banks’ records are to be indexed, and eventually, all the indices will be available as searchable databases on JewishGen. Presently, the Blitzstein Bank records and the Lipshutz/Peoples Bank records are the only ones that have been indexed."
