Jayzee:

There are several ships by that name but the only one that fits is the one I listed below. Question: Was the emigration to Canada or US (New York)? Canada has a strict policy about releasing the names on passenger lists that they consider too recent as opposed to US:

See: http://www.geocities.com/fcandido2001/s ... urnia.html

History of Ship:

Saturnia--Built 1927. 1932 transferred from Cosulich, 1940 interned at New York, 1942 chartered to Red Cross, 1943 Allied troopship, 1945 became US Hospital ship renamed Frances Y. Slanger, 1946 returned to owners, renamed Saturnia, 1965 scrapped. Some ports of Call for Saturnia 1948 (all are not listed):
New York, Gibraltar, Naples, Genoa, Alexandria, Piraeus, Palestine

Sorry that my pitch is off key. I guess I don't win those concert tickets!!!!! 8O

Seriously,

You need to find out if your relatives came through Canada or New York before you know which way to proceed.
