Dear Genners,

This is a first for me. I'm helping a friend compile a report on her family
history and in it she says that one branch of her family emigrated >from
Hamburg in 1908 to Argentina with the "family dog". They didn't travel first
class and the dog was, many years later buried in Argentina where the family
lived.

I've never heard or read of immigrants traveling with pets. Has anyone else
read or heard of stories like this? I have searched online but not seen
anything conclusive either way.

Best

Jeremy
