They Came On Ship's

I can pretty much guarantee you that your ancestors came from  other places around our globe. Maybe Italy, Sweden or even China. They most likely came to America on a ship. 

Several of my ancestors came over on ships and I have listed them here and a photo of them and the ship when possible.

Let's see their stories

Frederick William Kubberness was my Paternal Grandfather. He traveled with his parents and sibling from a small village in Lavin, Melchin, Germany. They traveled to the nearest port in Bremerhaven and boarded the ship Trave in 1888.
