    Money Exchange for 1850 Immigrants- Question part 2

    steve storch Newbie

      See original request at How did immigrants exchange German money for US money?

      I received a nice reply from Alice -historian on how immigrants moved from port with European money to the Midwest. But my ancestors all came before 1850 ; before Ellis island. Do you think the money exchange still worked the same way? and capturing transportation to Wisconsin? Probably a train to Buffalo, then a boat on great lakes? Is there any documentation on how much transportation might cost from NY to WI?
