Travel From Russia to Scotland in 1903 #general


Gladys Paulin
 

I have a memoir >from a cousin of my grandfather >from Minsk guberniya who emigrated
in mid 1905.

Her trip was by train >from Kalinkovichi to St. Petersburg and on to Finland; >from
there they embarked on a ship to Hull, England, then by train to Glasgow Scotland
from where they sailed to New York. (They were hidden in a hay wagon to pass
through the city of St. Petersburg to change stations)

My grandmother appears to have followed a similar route in September 1905 although
I have not been able to confirm her whole route; she did leave >from Kalinkovichi
and her arrival in New York was aboard a ship that had sailed >from Glasgow.

The cousin is listed in the passenger lists available at the following Finnish Web
site: http://www.migrationinstitute.fi

Switch to English language pages and follow directions on how to search the
passenger lists for free to see if your ancestors may have taken a route through
Finland.
