Destination USA

Between 1860 and 1924 twenty five million people crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the USA. You may be looking for that journey, the path your Ancestor took for a new life in a new country . Most of them traveled in Steerage, think of the movie Titanic and you will be able to imagine how the wealthier people traveled. Take a look at this site , read first hand reports by passengers who traveled this route in Steerage
