Re: Steerage Experience #general
AVOTAYNU: The International Review of Jewish Genealogy,” Volume XXIV, No. 1, Spring issue 2008,
carried an article entitled, “Coming to America through Hamburg and Liverpool Part II: CROSSING THE ATLANTIC, pp. 28-30.
The entire article is about Crossing the Atlantic. There you will find many of your questions answered and others not. The story is told from the steerage deck, the dining room and the sleeping quarters on the S.S. Dominion in 1911. Earlier crossings, of course, might tell a wholly different story. This is the story of my family’s crossing.
