Newspapers sometimes published lists of deaths extracted from the passenger manifest of tragic journeys like the ship "Libnitz" where over 91 people died from cholera during the voyage between Nov 1867 and Jan 1868. The logical place to find details about these stories is the ethnic press, and particularly the German-American press when it concerns a boatload of Germanic emigrants - most of them noted as being from Mecklenburg.
