How they traveled #usa #romania #russia

Hello there,

I'd be interested in learning how people in the late 1800s would have traveled to get to the steamships that would take them (sometimes indirectly, via other ports) to the US. There are two journeys in particular:

1888 - from Harlau, Romania, to Hamburg, Germany
1890 from Gorodische, about 100 miles from Kiev, to Hamburg, Germany

I would imagine by train but it seems the cost would be prohibitive. But it must have been cheaper (and more accessible) than a horse-drawn carriage. The same question applies to travel between other points. If there are books on this subject I'd appreciate learning about them. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Marcia Segal
