Ship information and travel records
« on: Tuesday 05 March 19 01:30 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I have been trying without luck to find information about a French Mail ship called the SS Asic (I think) that my Grandfather travelled on from Cape Lopez, French Congo to Le Havre and any passenger records. From Le Havre he joined the Royal Scots at Cinder City. Any information on the ship or passenger lists would be much appreciated. His name is William Wallace Rodger

Wrecksite has info on various passenger ships.

There are quite a few entries for 'SS Asia' but here's one that is French.

Thanks everyone for having a look for me it is very much appreciated.

Hi, Milliepede From his birth cert he was born in 19 Jan 1893, although he has had on forms 1892 I have noticed.

Annette7 & Flemming I will look up SS Asia and see if it is the ship and if it did the French Congo run.
