Ukraine to USA

Posted: 8 Oct 2005 8:10PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Shapiro
In 1909/1910, how would a mother and two children the oldest being a 9 year old girl, get from The Ukraine, to England and then to USA. ? I am told the mother somehow smuggled her children out of Ukraine over boarders and were actually shot at. This comes from the daughter her self. (Bessie is now deceased).
I don't recall the name of the ship they came on, but Bessie said it left from Liverpool. Any idea what ship that would have been?
The names I am interested in are Bessie Shapiro, her brother Nathiel(younger) and her mother. They were destined for Boston Ma to join father in Boston.
Thank you for any help with this.
