Hi all, I was wondering if you could give me some direction with the following. 

I guess I have had the following information for years, tucked away in some old typed documents about my Stege family's journey to Canada, but only just today, did I read it in detail, only to realize that my Stege family, did not journey through Hamburg, but rather left a port in Liepaja, Latvia, for Liverpool, England, and then on to Montreal Canada in 1899. They originated from Tomaszow, near Anielweka, Vohlynia, Russia. Was this commonly done? to travel from this port? Does anyone have any idea if I can find ship records? leaving Liepaja?
Thanks for your help.
