I just read Rachal's Journey. I was researching my Great Grandfather, Harry James Skeffington, when I found your story. Your account of Rachel and Abe's journey to America was made personnal to me by the small role my great grandfather played.
Your relatives persistance (how afraid they must have been) is what made the dream of a better life for thier family possible. I wanted to let you know that not long after your family's ordeal my great grandfather became Commissioner of Immigration for Boston, and in the fall of 1926, just prior to his death, was elected the democratic candidate to run for mayor of Revere.

I read your entry in "Chicken Soup for the Kids Soul". At least I think it was yours. If it was I would like to thank you.

Hope you remember me - Marlene and Basil's daughter Lorry! I often ask mum and dad whether they are still in contact with you so forgive this unorthodox approach but don't know how else to get your email address - would love to hear from you - it's a start!!!
