title Those Elusive Immigrants: Part Two

description In most cases, the passage to North America was neither a comfortable nor a pleasant experience for those adventurous souls determined to establish themselves in a new land. The vessels on which they sailed were often small. Space was cramped and afforded little privacy. The sanitary facilities ranged from fair to non-existent. That the amenities were so limited should not be surprising. Many of the ships used to transport passengers were not designed for that purpose at all. For example, vessels that carried loads of lumber to Europe frequently brought back cargoes of settlers, often at reduced rates*
