I have one correction. The following ship did not arrive on 7 December 1906.

The Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse had an accident with a mail ship, Orinoco, off

the coast of France. There were injuries and deaths. KWdG pulled into the

port of Cherbourg, and passengers were transferred to the S.S. York. They

continued to New York.


Arrival Date: Friday, 7 Dec 1906 Ports: Bre/NY




One quick note;


Those Banaters who were on the K Wilhelm d Gr when it collided with the Orinoco and

transferred to the Yorck in Cherbourg harbor are all in the database. These were all

taken from the original microfilm. In the two cases noted by Sherry I forgot to

note the change from the K Wilh d Gr to the Yorck.
