And another port on the west coast for onward migration to USA etc was Glasgow, Scotland.
I have traced the emigration of my great great grandparents, Hirsch Fayn (Harry Fine) and his wife Bune, from Lithuania in November, 1902. They are listed in the Hamburg passengers lists (under Fein!) leaving Hamburg on 21 November 1902 on the Lutterworth, a ship of the Hamburg-Amerika Line, and sailed to Grimsby. From there, they would have continued on by train to Glasgow, where some of their children lived. Tragically, Bune Fayn died on 11 December 1902, less than three weeks after arriving in Glasgow. Her death certificate attributes her death to pneumonia, which may have been caused (or at least aggravated) by the 32-hour journey the previous month across the North Sea from Hamburg to Grimsby. Perhaps Bune had been ill already, and aged 62, at that time she was already an old lady.
