Re: Steerage Experience #general

There was a report written in 1908 by the Immigration Commission describing steerage conditions in both the "old-type" and "new-type" steerage. The Immigration Commission was created by the US Congress to investigate different issues with regard to immigration. The report is available at the Internet Archive at https://archive.org/details/cu31924021182500/page/n1
The report should answer all your questions if your ancestor traveled around 1908.
