Re: Overland Emigration Routes to Eurropean Ports for passage to U.S. #usa

I can tell you unequivocally that my great grandfather who was a pharmacist in Ekaterinoslav, Russia (before Ukraine became an independent country) and his family (wife and 3 sons) took a train from Ekaterinoslav to Hamburg in 1904 in order to take their ship to New York. I don't know how many stops that they made or if they changed trains anywhere, but that was the preferred method of transportation to the Port if one could afford it.
