remember...if the person you are researching OWNED the ship, they won't be listed as a passenger. Same thing applies to crew. And as for families...they may not be listed as passengers if they didn't PAY for their place onboard.And to confirm the banana boat stories regarding Catherine Emmert.... She and her brothers were related to the ship's captain. Only one passage was paid for passage. Only one listed. But three travelled. No she didn't fall overboard and she didn't drown. She married into the Myer (Meyer?) family in Canada. May want to check out possible links with underground railroad (who writes about this stuff???)as Emmert land in Somerset had its southern boundary as the northernmost border of the Mason-Dixon line at one point. Heard suggestion that the white people used Arthurian code words in their circles (Avalon is just south of Somerset) to get people to the promised land/safety. Ms. Catherine may have been in Canada for a reason that makes her hard to trace.
Remember... boats moved people, not just bananas from the islands.
