Re: Tracking a passenger across the Atlantic through England

David Ellis

I don't know about Hull.  My g-gf Abram IOELS also is documented in the Hamburg departure lists, but I don't see him in the manifests from England or New York.  His naturalization record shows an arrival date in New York as 10 April 1888.  Eight ships arrived in New York that day, and manifests are extant for only four of them.  As one researcher put it, I lost the coin toss.  Go for Jacob's naturalization record; maybe you'll have better luck than I did.
