Subject: [TSL] Dampfschiff named the Viola
Date: Thu, 04 Jan 2007 22:03:04 -0400

Dear Sirs,

I am currently researching my family tree and with the help of the
Hamburg Passenger Lists, "Link to your Roots" have recently discovered
that my great-grandparents arrived in London on the 3rd August 1903
abroad a steamship called the Viola.

Please see my great-grandmother's passenger record below:-

Surname: Blau
Given Name: Rosa
Maiden Name:
Age in Years: 22
Date of Birth:
Age in Months:
Place of Birth:
Attendant Family Members: none
Marital Status: verheiratet
Nationality: Österreich
Place of Residence: Jaroslau
(Federal) State of Origin:
Destination: London
Passenger Number: 99.0004
Passage Number:
Accomodation: ohne Angabe
Date of Departure: 08.03.1903
Port of Departure:
Destination of Ship: London
Name of Ship: Viola
Ship Type: Dampfschiff
Shipping Company: A. Kirsten, Hamburg
Agent: Hamburg-Amerika Linie (Hamburg-Amerikanische
Country Flag of Ship: Deutschland
I have been unable to find any record/picture of a steamship called
"Viola" in relation to an "A. Kirsten, Hamburg" or "Hamburg-Amerika
Linie HAPAG", and I am enquiring if you know how I can find out more,
or whether you have even heard of this steamship?

I am also interested to know how long the journey from Hamburg to
London (St. Katherine's Dock by Tower Bridge) would have taken back in
1903, and the cost of a ticket? And how I can find out this

In closing, I would like to comment that although I have not been able
to find information relating to the steamship Viola, that I have found
The Ships List website to be very interesting and informative!

Thanking you in advance for any assistance you may be able to offer in
this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. G. Steppel.
