Hello fellow ship lovers!

I have recently learned that my grandparents immigrated from Germany in the late 1920's. My Grandfather immigrated to the U.S in 1927 aboard the SS Deutchland and my Grandmother followed in 1929 aboard the RMS Aquitinia. Since I found out which ships they sailed on, I have been searching for information and pictures of the ships. I came across this website after watching a slideshow video of the RMS Aquitinia in YouTube. I decided to join this website so I could continue my search. I'm looking forward to the information!

Thanks for the images Old Se Dog. You probably noticed that you included two different ships named "Deutchland." The one with the four stacks was the first one and sailed in the early 1900s. The one with the two stacks was the second one and sailed between the 1920s to the 1940s. It is the second ship (with two stacks) that my Grandfather sailed on. He sailed West and arrived on Ellis Island on the same day that Charles Lindbergh took off and flew East for the first Atlantic crossing (May 20, 1927)! Thanks again for the pictures!
