Treasure Chest Thursday - Immigration Card

My treasure this week is the actual card my grandmother SORENSEN carried with her on the S.S. Hekla from Denmark in 1904 to show that she had "passed inspection" and did not need to be quarantined on Ellis Island on her arrival in the USA.

Last Surname Saturday - SORENSEN, I posted a story about the family, including a photo of the ship S.S. Hekla and a photo of the family just before Dorothy (listed on the card as Dorthea) left Denmark for the USA in 1904.

This card is a true treasure that I will pass on to my grandchildren.

Family is Forever! ;-)
