Perhaps you should compare the dates for the people just before and just
after in EmiHamn or whatever. I ran into a case where an EmiHamn data
entry person had reversed the numbers for month and day. In this case,
the two successive people had entirely different Gothenberg departure
dates but had reached New York together.

I have been trying to figure this date mystery out for years. I decided to ask
the experts for help.
My great grandparents left Sweden in 1872 to come to Ottawa, Franklin Co.,
The "police records" in Gothenburg said that they left Gothenburg on the ship
Orlando, on 7 June, 1872.
They were going first to Hull. I found them arriving in New York on the ship,
City of New York, on 2 June, 1872.
Can someone tell me how that can be possible? My great grandfather's older
brother made a trip from there to Quebec, Canada in 1869 & it took him about 20
Did I somehow read the dates wrong about 100 times?
I welcome all suggestions!
