SHIPPING records (meaning, ON A BOAT) show the departure port as "Havre".  Does that mean Le Havre in France? or Havre´ in Belgium?

"SHIPPING records..."

Do you see what I quoted?  What you wrote? SHIPPING is not there.  What I quoted was from the email I received from Wikitree after you asked your question.  There are also other places named Havre.  "(Meaning on a boat)" was also added after.  You can emigrate to Canada on a flipping train.  Wow.  I would suppose there are "shipping" records for that too?  Right?  "Shipping" records are not limited to BOATS.  Boats and shipping are not synonomous.

Le Havre, Normandy, was the usual emigration port from France, but also for other Central European countries.

Vielen dank, Helmut.

Can you suggest a source for learning where the different ports of departure were located, and which émigrés utilized them?
