German steamers in 1890

Hi Everyone, I am hoping someone will be able to help me. My Gt. Gt. Grandparents emigrated to Buenos Aires in 1890. I read an article that said they travelled on a German steamer. Does anyone know where I can look up these German steamers for passenger lists. They got homesick and wanted to come home but were told by Houlder Bros.
that it would be too expensive so they stayed out there.
Cheers.

That's very kind of you billyboy. Already I have gained some knowledge from this site but still looking for that German steamer that the family went out to Buenos Aires on. Never give up is my motto!
Cheers

Hi steval,
on www.ancestry.com or www.ancestry.de you can look into all passengers lists of ships that left Germany in that time to all parts of the world. Generally it is not free but you can apply for a free 14day trial, maybe time enough to find out things.
Best wishes, Manfred

Hi Manfred, I am so happy to let you know that I found the German Steamer that my ancestors went to Buenos Aires on. It was the Graf Bismark, arriving in B.A. in 30th April1889.
Thank you for you kind help.
Best wishes.

Hi steval, glad you found your family way of travelling. I don`t have a photo of GRAF BISMARCK but can send you a scan of the deck plans if you want. Just pm your email adress to me.
Best wishes, Manfred

HAPAG had a "Fürst Bismarck' built 1892 in Stettin (launched 1890), pictures and information of which abounds, but I just cannot find any "Graf Bismarck."
