My great grandmother Taube Mankunsky came over to England via Hamburg circa 1898 from Simnas Lithuania with her son Dovid Yitzchok’s fiancee (later my grandmother) Tsivia Shochet as well as Taube’s 2 youngest children Zelda (later Betsy) and Leib (later Louis) Mankunsky. They landed in Hull. At least that was the oral history which I had from my grandmother Tsivia via her daughter my mother Mary Myers Adams. The name Mankunsky was changed to Myers in Engand. My grandparents Dovid Yitzchok and Tsivia Shochet Myers married in Sheffield in 1899.
I have searched the Hamburg ship lists but can find no record of Taube and Tsivia’s journey. Are the shipping lists complete? Was there another shipping line? My grandmother talked of travelling by horse and cart to Hamburg but once in England they travelled by train from Hull to Sheffield where Dovid Yitzchok and his older brother Benyomin Meir already married to Sarah Rose Nathanson from Prien awaited them.
I would be grateful for any further infomation.
