Trying to find details on my ancestors voyage to the states from Germany. I have found the "record" on ancestry...which just references a book where the information is found. I haven't been able to find that book to view. Is there anyone that could help me find more details or where to look for more information?
Here are the details found on the ancestry record (that I can't seem to link to as it keeps giving me an error! sorry!):
