Re: Locating Ships Passenger Lists #general

Phil, Try this. First, consult the Morton Allan Directory of European
Passenger Ships Arrivals to confirm that the Kroonland did indeed arrive on
Oct. 10. If correct, look up the the two microfilms (Oct. 7 and Oct. 13)
that respectively precedes and follows the microfilm of Oct 10, 1905. For
example, the Oct. 10 microfilm contains volumes 1352 and 1353. You may
discover that Vol. 1352 actually begins at the end of the Oct. 7 film or
that Vol. 1353 actually ends at the beginning of the Oct. 13 film. This is
what I found while I was searching for the ship that brought my mother to
the U.S. in 1923.

My grandfather emigrated to the US by ship via Antwerp Belgium to New
York in 1905 in the month of October. ... However, the microfilm that
should have had the ship, Kroonland, arriving in New York on October 10,
1905, in fact did not have that ship listed.
