Subject: [TSL] query

In about 1904 could people travel direct to New York from any port in
Australia? Or would they have gone back to England first and then to NY from/
there? Still looking for Thomas H (Hutchinson) Clark who the US 1910 census
states, was born in Beachport SA 30th May 1885(this is fact) and arrived in
NY about 1904. He was an ironer in a shirt collar factory at the time of the
census. Any help appreciated please.

Hi Wendy

Its a long way from Beachport to New York ?  I would think as the crow flies and was no Panama Canal   c1904  he probably travelled via England then across the Atlantic.
 Or maybe gone to California and went by train across the US ?  What was the attraction in NY ?  
Ancestry have 2 passenger departure indexes covering around 1904 from NSW & from VIC but no Thomas CLARKE
 Would he have had time to get naturalised   in NY  ?

Are 3 entries in Ancestrys Public trees for this family 

What about the rest of his family here. Did they stay put  ?   

Maybe some ref in Trove ?
