In my tracking of relatives in the state of Washington, I have found some information from sites provided by Washington Secretary of State, especially the sites "Historical Records Search" and "Digital Archives". They pick up information from e.g. Census Records, Naturalization Records and Social Security Death Index. You can search on a certain name. No registration is necessary. Perhaps there is a similar Secretary of State in Massachusetts, where Bostob is situated? I do not know, but perhaps somebody else?

Hi Klyme;
You've made the year 2005 end in a great wonderful way.
Thank you so much this is the info I've been looking for years for and no one knew it.
Was this found to be the Boston port I was'nt quite clear with your whereabouts of localing it. Do you know how I could find more about this ship.Thanks again

Yes this was the Boston port. I'm not sure off hand where to find more info on the ship but I have seen it on the internet somewhere - including the picture. Try 'google' and see what you come up with. I think 'Cyndi's List' probably has some links also.
Enjoy the New Year.

S.S. Cymric, scroll down to the very bottom and you will see an old picture post card image of the ship plus this website will give you particulars on the vessel. They list practically ever trip she ever took until in 1916, May 8, when she was torpedoed and sunk by German sub. U-20, 140 miles from Fastnet with the loss of 5 lives Atlantic Journey ID 3833.

Hi Klyne and Granskare.
Thank you all so much I wish I would have thought to enter for help from the forum along time ago,but I thought it was only for Finnish quests. Can't wait to show all the family what you all have found for me.
Thank you much again
