Jennifer Meltzer <jhmeltzer@...> wrote about her maternal grandmother, Jennie (Beck) Pearlman:

<<In 1925 she traveled on her own to visit the "Alte Heim" - the old country.... There is a photo of her on the ship, but the name is partly hidden. What's visible is _ _TZOW BREMAN. A key to finding the correct ship is that she was not an immigrant at this point, but an American passenger.>>

A Bremen passenger list (1907-1939) on Ancestry
shows that Jennie Pearlman, 49, departed Bremen on 5 Sept 1925 on the Lützow. The same database can be searched without an Ancestry subscription, at
(or ).

Jennie is also listed in New York arrival records on Ancestry
Her surname is misspelled there -- PEARLEMAN. It's spelled correctly on the actual passenger list, which is headed "List of United State Citizens." Her entry includes her home address and a passport number. Her passport application isn't on Ancestry, but may be available from the U.S. State Department:
