Re travel with infants

 

The answer is — with great difficulty. My Russian grandmother Fanny, who had married and had 3 children in London, traveled with them (aged 4, 3, and 2) to the U.S. in 1909. They had bought her nephew a passenger ticket so he could help, but he “found himself a girlfriend aboard ship” and was little help. I believe there were agencies
 and volunteers at Ellis Island in New York which helped with arrangements. 

Also, a great deal of travel in Europe and America was done by train, where records are not available. The steamship lines made those arrangements.
