Does anyone know if there are records of passengers who left Finland prior to the operation of the Finnish Steamship Company out of Hanko.

My grandfather Johan Erik Karfsor's passport is dated October 4 1890, yet in the history by Anders Myhrman he documents my grandfather as arriving in the US on November 12, 1890.

I have been unable to find anything from Finland or the US as to when he left Finland and where from, or where in the US he arrived.

Thanks,
Marcy

Thanks to Bert and June for the leads, some I had others I didn't. Thanks for mentioning about the PM June, I rarely check it and I had 5 in there.

I'm off to search Castle Garden.

Thanks, Marcy
