Summary note
Galveston immigration records document the attempts of the Jewish Immigrants' Information Bureau (JIIB), working in cooperation with several other Jewish organizations, to receive Jewish immigrants through the port of Galveston rather than New York City. The papers further describe the JIIB's efforts to resettle the immigrants in communities throughout the United States. Papers include ship passenger lists, correspondence, and statistical reports, as well as papers dealing with individual immigration cases.
