Looked at some of the sites mentioned under this heading - have a problem. I
have people in my tree who emigrated Devon to USA (western NY State) around
1870. The only clue I have about ship details is 'White Star Line'.
I think I need to be able to find out which ships belonged to the White Star
Line - a shipping company - before I can narrow down my search.
