Completed - Thanks help with deciphering ships list please
« on: Wednesday 04 March 09 22:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi there...

Can anyone decipher the two pieces below....one is final destination, one is the address in New York...

Tall order, has something has been crossed out  >:(

It's from a ships list in 1911, for a LENA HILSDEN

It was told to me that this lady travlled to NY to visit her sisters, but it looks like to me, that she was employed?  The lady below her appeared to have been going to same place...

Thanks
