Subject: [TSL] misremembered immigration dates
Date: Thu, 26 Oct 2006 12:02:24 -0600 (Mountain Daylight Time)
Sue's point about not remembering the date of immigration rings very true.
My person's Declaration of Intention (naturalization paper) in 1915 says he
emigrated to the US from Liverpool, England, on the vessel Lusitania ...
arrived at the port of New York ... on or about the 27th day of August ...
1907. I believe there was a first Lusitania which was already sunk or
otherwise out of service by then, and the Lusitania we all know about wasn't
delivered to Cunard until 26 Aug 1907, and her maiden voyage from Liverpool
departed 7 September 1907, arriving 13 September 1907. Time warp travel and
all that ...

As I know you are aware, on naturalization papers (pre-Sept 1906 for US
immigrants) the most misremembered part of the date is the actual year . .
remembered pretty well is 'month' or time of year, ship name, port of
arrival . .
