Thanks for your site regarding the Cymric. Today I learned a brother in law of a first cousin twice removed sailed from Liverpool to New York in May 15, 1915. The manifest says the ship went through the Panama Canal, which I found  interesting. His name was Michael Kelly.

Warm regards,

Last year an elderly relative of mine died and I have recently been going through his effects which I inherited. During the searches I came across two very primitive brass ashtrays which appear to have been beaten out of field gun shell cases. One depicts a sailor holding a life belt with "SS Cymric Liverpool" inscribed on it, which prompted my internet search and the other has the same sailor but without the lifebelt. They are the sort of thing I suppose members of the crew would have produced as a hobby to while away the hours on a long voyage. It would be great to learn anything about the origin of these pieces.

I have a written record by my aunt that my grandfather came to Boston on the Cymric around 3/8/1906.

Thank you for finding pictures of the ship. My grandfather and his father and mother sailed on this ship from Liverpool, England from May 7th to May 16 when it arrived in Portland, Maine.

I appreciated your page on the Cymric. My grandmother came to America on that ship around 1906. Do you know if the wreck has ever been found and photographed?
