Subject: [G-P-L] families using same agent, routes

* My GF came to Baltimore enroute to Cleveland via a Norddeutscher Lloyd
ship, Weimar, in 1891.
* My GGPs & G-aunts/G-uncles & their families came to Baltimore enroute to
Cleveland via a Norddeutscher Lloyd ship, Munchen, in 1899.
* I know there's at least one more Ewert G-uncle that came (have Cleveland
marriage certificate), but no immigration details as yet (so many
Ewerts/Everts, so little time, but I have a hunch there may be yet more; AND
G-aunts may have come with families and marriage surnames).
SO, I don't know where these people came from yet ("Germany"/"Prussia") or
if they lived close to one another back there or not so my question may be
extremely naive: Did families generally tend to utilize the same ship
agents and/or travel the same routes or is this merely coincidental in the 2
cases above? I would think that on such a vast undertaking, you'd seek
recommendations, especially if the Clevelanders were footing your travel
I wouldn't have recognized my GGPs & party as "my" Ewerts (us living cousins
had NO IDEA our GGPs came to the US) except that the US Customs Agent in
Baltimore wrote in my GF's name and Cleveland address as a note on the
manifest and the Transcriber transcribed it as "other name". I hope that
Public Servant got a big raise and thanks, too, to the Transcriber!
Thank you for any opinions in this matter. Julia
