They Came by Sea

Their journeys were often perilous and almost always long and uncomfortable. Only the very wealthy traveled first or second class. Most sailed in steerage in awful conditions. But they came for a new life in the country where, “Streets are paved with gold.”

Below are the last names and ships they came on. Following are pictures of these ships. Note that not all the family members came on the ship mentioned. These are only examples.
