Re: [S-R] Return Trips
- Your request is to a large part, sadly, a dead-end. Many people ask, the
answer is always the same.
I've never seen such a list, the US government never kept any emigrant
records during that era, thus no public info, nothing readily available.
The only place such lists might exist is with the shipping companies
themselves. The vast majority of companies thas passaged immigrants were
European, largely German-based. Most of the shipping company records did
not survive the past 100 years for one reason or another.
You can try these two, but remember, most of their data is From Europe to
America. The purpose of providing these links is that there may be some
good contacts to reach for further info.
For a broader perspective, try posting a message at a larger, "generic"
genealogy group, since this issue was common to all emigrants.
