Hi Shirley

There are few if any shipping records from Eastern Europe to Hull or any other nearby port such as Grimsby. My ancestors (on three sides) came via Hull between 1865 and 1875, but there are no official records. Please note that by the 1890s a lot of migrants came via Grimsby rather than Hull. You should contact the University of Hull Maritime Studies Dept for further information. 

Records were either not kept or were destroyed for the East Coast ports (my 4th side went to Leith in Scotland but no records there either).

My Guttenberg family also ended up in Sheffield in early 20th century after having lived in Hull and Grimsby in latter quarter of 19th century.
