About 20 years ago, my husband were vacationing in Barbados where we met several families of Scottish Jews also on vacation there. They told us that when their ancestors left Russia in the late 19th c or early 20th c, they traveled to a European seaport (name unknown) and boarded a ship that was bound for America. When the ship stopped in Britain, they naively assumed it was America and got off (!)
