I just came from the Family History Center, where I viewed a microfilm I
had ordered of persons emigrating from the port of Gøteborg in 1879. I
found two entries which may (possibly) be my great-grandparents. For
each person listed, I see name, age, place of origin, destination, date
(of sailing, I presume) and a code number. What is the significance of
the code number? Also, is there any way to determine the ship?
