There are quite a few other records, such as his marriage record, birth records of his children, and his and his wife's death records on familysearch.org (a free research site, you just need to sign up for a username and password)
The Emile Brand on the LaSavoie in 1921 was not your ancestor, but rather a person born in 1895 in France, whose last residence was Switzerland and he was a farmer.
Because Emile was not a US citizen, he would not have a US passport. If he had a passport it would have been issued by Jamaica, which he seemed to have be a citizen of.
Thank you Susannah especially for the incorrect LeHarve record and for what appears to be my grandfather's last voyage in 1920. Emile passed on in in 1933. I do have records for his 2nd marriage in Jamaica and those children including my dad whose birth appears not to have been recorded. I am trying to locate records for his birth, his marriage to Jeanne Stuger, and 5 children born in Suriname. (only 3 survived: ADA, Leonel, and Willy. he might have been using his Suriname passport, but I must admit I did not search for Jamaican citizenship records.
You have been a blessing to me.
Dear Ms. Robinson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
As the previous poster found that your grandfather held British citizenship, and as Jamaica was part of the British Crown’s Dominions at that time, we suggest that you contact the National Archives of the United Kingdom to request a search for his passport application. We also suggest contacting The National Library of Jamaica for any relevant information as well as review the FamilySearch Research wiki for Jamaica Genealogy.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
