Does anyone know where I can find description of ships crossing the
Atlantic in period 1860-80's. Specifically I looking for info on the
Orlando, a steam vessel out of Goteborg. Also what ships sailed from
Liverpool to NY.
Also has anyone heard of a Capital Theater in NY in 1880's where
immigrants were processed?
Family info just received. Any long-lost cousins in Sweden
recognize any of these ancestors.
