My relatives left Spisska Nova Ves by train to Bremen where they sailed to
the US (Baltimore). I have some German Advertisements for such travel
that included another train to Chicago for those with that final destination
(take a look it was 6 Marks more). This was in 1890 so your descendents
must have had it a little easier.

My great grandmother Kata Hanzelka (name on manifest) immigrated 1902
September 16 to America.
She arrived Ellis Island May 6, 1903.
She travelled alone - age 15. How did she (and others) get to Breman? I
looked at google maps and with today's roads it is an 11-hour drive or a 9
day walk. Did they walk? Were there trains?
