The Debs Webster Family Immigration Story

In the summer of 1952, my maternal Grandfather, Debs Warren Webster, and his family, emigrated from Brazil to the United States.  They traveled on the ocean liner, The S.S. Brazil.  After arriving in New York, Debs and his family bought a car and some camping equipment and traveled across the United States to California.

Debs took lots of photos and collected postcards along their way.  The following posts are about their adventures as they traveled from Brazil to California.

This is a photo of the family before they left Brazil.
