Our post from June 30th about Belorussian Jews which were looking for their relatives in US in 1921 got a lot of attention, and we’ve received a lot of inquiries from our readers. We’ve decided to continue publishing this list, and below is another 18 entries of people who were looking for their relatives in US in 1921.
