JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Unable to find names on NY passenger lists - LOSEFF #general

Walter Rosett

I need help finding names on passenger lists. Even the Family History Library
help desk was to no avail. Dora LOSEFF b 1883 in Veliz(h), Russia
stated she arrived on the Caramania (Carmania) >from Bremen on 20 Nov 1905
arriving NY on 13 Dec 1905. She immediately went to Chicago where she had

A presumed relative, Sophie LOSEFF aka POGROFF b 1894 stated that she
arrived in NY on the Germania Dec 1905 under the name Shifra LOSEFF. She is
possibly a sister to Dora.

Saul LOSEFF aka Solomon Solomons LOSEFF, the sister of Sophie stated he
arrived >from Liverpool leaving 11 Dec 1905 and arriving in NY 12 Dec 1905 on
the Carmania as well. Likely he originated in Bremen. All these persons
seemed to have stopped in Liverpool >from Bremen to NY. I presume that the
Carmania and Germania refer to the same ship but possibly not and dates
could be mistaken. There seem to be various records for these ships but I
have not been able to locate anyone with this surname on any of them for
these dates. Obviously I am missing something and need help.
