I know that my GGF and family left Kiev between 1910
and 1920 and went to Havana, Cuba. They then sailed
from Havana to Key West, FL in 1926 aboard a ship called
the "Governor Cobb." Does anyone know if there is any
way to see the ship's manifest of the Governor Cobb?

The passenger manifests >from the port of Miami were recently transferred
to the National Archives in Washington, DC. I would guess that manifests
from Key West were transferred at the same time. I suggest Tracie should
go to the NARA website where there is a facility for sending email
requests for information to NARA staff. Ask if they can send a copy of
the passenger manifest. I think it is necessary to specify a date, not
just the year. Since Tracy knows the year, port and ship it would appear
she can find the date. (To find the date, one can look for a stamp in the
ancestor's passport or look for the naturalization papers or look on the
ancestor's alien registration form.)
