5036RE: [Friesland-genealogy] Jelle deVries - born - 3 aug 1868
- Jun 9, 2001Hi Lisa,
The dates don't jive, but for what it's worth, I found a J. deVries (no
space, the way you spelled it) on the passenger list of S.S. Rotterdam,
sailing 19 October 1899 to New York.
I started looking with the 1888 sailings and that's the only deVries listed.
Look at it on http://istg.rootsweb.com/v2/1800v2/rotterdam18991019.html
If that's the one, a picture of the boat is on
The sailings I looked at were only the ones from Holland, he might have left
from some other country?
