Roberta Sheps mentioned the ship her great-grandmother sailed on >from Danzig to
Canada as being the "Vedic", and wonders about possible spelling errors in the
transcription.

The "Ships & Fleets" link at Steve Morse's very powerful One Step search tools
webpage http://stevemorse.org/
leads to Stephen P. Morse's & Susan E. Swiggum's "Obtaining Details about Ships and
/or Fleets in One Step" http://stevemorse.org/swiggum/fleets.html

A search there gives one 1917 Vedic (with a maiden voyage as a troopship, but
refitted for commercial service in 1920 and sailing as such at compatible dates for
Roberta's great grandmother trip) described under http://www.theshipslist.com/

Additional info for this same White Star Line "Vedic" appears under
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Vedic

It's a "possible". The short descriptions do not mention Danzig (which does not
mean Vedic never sailed >from there, at least once...) but do mention Canada, and
Halifax.
