Hi Kim,

Jacob would have taken a "feeder ship" to Hull, England. Probably on one
of these Wilson Line ships .. JUNO, HERO, DOMINO or BRAVO. On the SS&A we
haven't had time to check the Bergen (or other west coast ports) sailing
schedules. But you can check Wilson Line, and their ships and articles
about transmigration through Hull ...

There is a good chance that this is the Allan Line ship he embarked on at
