Germans to America, 1875-1888 for Henry Peters

Does anybody have access to the Germans to America, 1875-1888 CD set? I have been searching fruitlessly looking for the immigration of a Henry Peters. According to the census records and one naturalization record I have, he emmigrated from the "Province of Hannover" in 1887/1888 and settled in Lake City, Wabasha, Minnesota. If anyone has access to these CD's, it would be sincerely appreciated!

Thanks,
John

John. I find a Henry Peters, age 14, who arrived in NYC on 26 May 1888 aboard the SS Trave from Bremen via Southampton, he is on page 7, passenger 379, and from Germany. Could this be him? If yes and you do not have access and would like a copy, give me your email address and I will forward it to you. Don

Thank you for looking, he's been my brick wall. The record you found I do not believe is him. According to his death record his birth date was 24 Aug 1871. That would make him about 3 years older than the record you located. To date, I've only found one naturalization record for him. 3 others I located and purchased were incorrect. Thanks again for looking, it truly is appreciated.
