Family history blog focusing on genealogy and artifacts for several surnames, including: Ackerman, Brooks, Cabot, Haskell, Holbrook, MacKenzie, Merrill and others. My interest was sparked by my grandmother's research and collection of artifacts that were stashed away in an old slant top desk that is now at my Dad's house.
Treasure Chest Thursday - Kashima Maru Passenger List
When my grandfather, Merrill Haskell, went to Vladivostok, Russia in 1919 he sailed out of Seattle on the S.S. "Kashima Maru". He saved a copy of the passenger list, which provides details about the ship, the itinerary, and a list of the passenger. He is listed as a Saloon Passenger on page 4 as "Haskell, Mr. M., New York, N.Y.". The others he was traveling with, include "Norwood, Mr. R., New York, N.Y." on page 5 and "Wood, Mr. E.P. and Mrs., New York, N.Y." on page 6.
