Jewish Genealogical Society of Cleveland: Why Cleveland? Finding Answers in the Industrial Removal Office Records

Wondering why your immigrant ancestor chose to live in Cleveland instead of Pittsburgh? Little Rock, not Los Angeles? Memphis, not Miami? The answers might lie in the records of the Industrial Removal Office. The IRO, founded in 1901, assisted immigrants in finding employment and better living conditions, and helped assimilate them into American society. IRO agents, often working in partnership with B’nai B’rith or other Jewish fraternal groups, spread around the USA securing jobs, and then immigrants would be sent to those locations to establish a new life. Records of the IRO, housed at the American Jewish Historical Society, include ledger books, case files and correspondence, as well as reports by local agents on the newly settled immigrants. Ohio, and specifically Cleveland, played outsized roles in the history of the IRO, and the talk will provide an Ohio-focused angle. The presentation examines the history of the IRO and its records. The presentation will, using a case study, demonstrate how to use the online index, and how to navigate to find immigrant case files, correspondence, and reports. Presented by Renée K. Carl. Co-sponsored by the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program of Case Western Reserve University. 1:30 p.m. Nov. 15.
