The documents above are Russian travel documents issues to Karl Fritzler and his family. He used these documents to travel from Grimm to Hull, England, and then from Liverpool to Nova Scotia, Canada, before officially arriving in Portland, Maine. The first page is written in Russian; the second page has a German and French translation of the travel document details, including the passengers covered by this Russian passport.


The following photos are from a private, family collection. The names of all the individuals are not known. If you can identify anyone, please let us know.
