I wonder if a new thread may not be as valuable to us all. It's
been said endlessly that the Port of Hamburg, along with the
Hamburg-Amerika Line, dominated the emigration trade during the
great tide (1885-1914). Most of the boats dumped the tired and

I will add one Port based only upon Declarations of Intent

I suspect that the trip to Antwerp was over land.
