KONGIGIN LUISE  sailed From Bremen, Germany and arrived in New York June 30, 1910


This Junker Family's nearly Identical Passenger List ALSO appears under the

Ship Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm Arriving in New York June 20, 1910.

(The Same Ship the Maron Family sailed on in 1912) - which would make sense)


I have been unable to locate this family on any of the Wilhelm Manifests

and the original Manifest for the Luise is not available to date.

There is either an error in transcription or the Junker's were originally

booked on the Wilhelm and cancelled and boarded the Luise (possible but

unlikely as there is only a 10 day delay between the two ships).

Until such time as I can document otherwise - I have chosen the later of the two ships.

No doubt the key may be:

Peter - Appears on the transcribed Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm list - June 20 Arrival

      - Does not appear on the transcribed records for the KONIGIN LUISE - June 30 arrival
