Ship Atlanta arriving to Argentina #general


Nicole Yossefi <nicole.y.de.c@...>
 

Hello genners
my grandfather Markus Felsensztejn arrived on June 01, 1923 to Argentina.
I couldn't find the port of departure in the CESLA website nor any
other details about the ship on the web.
Any help will be highly appreciated.

Your ship is probably the Atlanta of the Cosulich Line (formerly Austrian)
which also carried meat >from Argentina to Italy.

Built in 1909 by Russell & Co, Port Glasgow, 4,897 gross tons. Fitted to
carry 80 1st & 2nd class passengers, and 1,200 3rd class. Bombed and sunk
off Egersund, Norway, 11 Jan 1945, as the German-flag Charlotte.

Let me add my two cents

I have rechecked the CEMLA website and will translate every info on
grandfather Markus, probably misunderstood because of language differences.

FELSENSZTEJN Markus
Age 20
Nationaity Polish
Profession Butcher
Arrived to Buenos Aires on 1923/06/14
Steamship Atlanta
Port of origin Trieste. (I suggest checking where was Trieste located
at this time, because if memory serves it swtiched between Italy and
Yugoslavia).

Hope this helps
