I know that my gg grandfathers came on the immigrant ship S.S. Brasillia/Brazilia from Hamburg. The ship departed on 27 Apr 1899 and landed in Halifax, Canada on 9 May 1899.
Anton Russ came over by himself. He was b. 1872 in Banyliv, Bukovina. **His wife, Maria/Marya Russ (b. 1875) came over with daughter Wasylena (b. 1898) at a later date and I'm unsure of when. They probably came the same way, Hamburg to Halifax, Canada.**
Metro/Demetro/Dmetro Billey/Bily (b. 1874) came over with his wife Anastasia (b. 1879) and son George (b. 1898/99). Also travelling with them were Anastasia's mother and stepfather, Iftema and Ivan Bachur and their children. Teodor/Todor Billey/Bily also came with his family. I believe Teodor and Metro were brothers. They both came from Borivci, Bukovina.
We are unsure of when my other gg grandfather, Stefan/Stephan Kucher/Kuczer/Kutcher/etc. (b. 1865), came over. It was said that he came over to Canada first, then sent for his wife, Alexandra (b. 1869), son Nykolay (b. 1892), and daughter Iwona (b. 1897). Nykolay may have been born in Bukovina, Ukraine or Romania. We believe Romania would be the more likely choice.
Here's what I've found on the website, www.ltyr.hamburg.de
and it is what I would want to order.
