Re: Tracking a passenger across the Atlantic through England
My father took a similar route in 1913. Hamburg to Hull or Grimsby, then a train to Liverpool where other ships would take on their US bound passengers. I transcribed the passenger list for his ship to Boston and submitted it to the website of the Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild. Some time later I did the same for his Hamburg departure and discovered that many passengers on the same page of the first ship could be found on the same page of the second ship. Using that as a guide I searched for 1887 ships arriving NY with the name of one of Yankel Farfel's co-passengers, Wilhelm Schafer/Schaefer (one of the more legible names on his page) and found Wilhelm on the Arizona, coming in on June 20 1887. Sure enough Yankel Farfel was on the next line. Yankel is indexed on Ancestry.com as Yankel Tarfel.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I found a passenger, Yanckel Farfel, on a Hamburg list. I would like to track him across the ocean. According to a list I found on Ancestry, he departed in June 1887 on the ship Flamingo headed for New York. However, I can find neither him nor the Flamingo arriving in New York. The record in Ancestry indicates that the arrival place is "Hull (Amerika) via Liverpool", spelled and punctuated exactly like that.
