    Seeking List of Jerusalem Emigrants


      Hi I live in Australia and would like to obtain a copy of the following records -- RG 84, Israel, Index to Records from U.S. Consular Posts in Jerusalem, Jaffa, and Haifa, 1857-1935 (UD 448), File for Jerusalem - List of Jerusalem Emigrants, Leib (Dentist) Kahansky (Box 2). And was wondering how I can go about that?  Thanks
