Reply with quote

These are wonderful ads that our ancestors may have held in their hands when they arrived to purchase their tickets to sail from Europe.

My cousin sent these to me a few years ago, but we can't remember what digital library they came from! Does anyone recognize them?

Try right clicking on the original images and then go to image information. Sometimes the source is listed!

Shellie thanks so much for sharing these! I've never seen these types of ads and it does help provide some perspective as to what my ancestors may have seen as they planned their new lives.

I used Google Image searching on a number of possible ways to describe the advertising, but didn't find anything matching.

The first image above, with the people on ship deck, says (in Polish)

Jazda przyjemna i bez przeszkod do Ameryki, Canady, Argentyny i t. d.
Podroz na wspanialych okrentach po cenach najnizszych

Asekurujem emigrantow od zawrocenia ich na ojczyzne, i od smierci
w razie wypadku w koleji lub na okrencie.

Biuro dostarcza roboty w Canadzie na bardzo dobrych warunkach.
Dalsze informacje udziela na zapytanie natychmiast bezpatnie.

Google translate misses a few words and mangles the rest to be:

Driving fun and no obstacle to America, Canady, Argentina and td
Travelling to the wonderful okrentach the lowest prices

Belay immigrants from the homeland recycle them, and from death
in the event of an accident in the rail or on the okrencie.

Office supplies Canadzie work in very good conditions.
For more information contact immediately on request free of charge.

I'd appreciate seeing it translated by someone that is more familiar with Polish
than the computer!..

Thanks for looking further for more clues Bob - My Polish cousin in France found this through one of the hundreds of digital libraries throughout Europe. Finding it again has been a needle in a haystack scenario.

Your efforts to translate are much appreciated - Sometimes Google translations are so funny!

That one is from the 1920's after the achievement of the port of Gdynia.
A museum dedicated to Polish emigration opened in Gdynia

There's also a FB page : https://www.facebook.com/muzeumemigracjigdynia
I picked that picture here

Not quite an ad, but some videos of passengers arriving at Ellis Island in 1903 & 1906
They're looking for people to add stories..

http://blog.hornblower.com/heartbreakandhope/

New York, NY – In honor of the reopening of Ellis Island on Monday,
October 28, 2013, Statue Cruises is pleased to announce the launch of a
new blog to tell the stories of the immigrants who came to the United
States through Ellis Island.
