The family may have traveled over land, to Herford, 10 miles east of Lenzinghausen. In Herford, Anna and her children would have boarded a small barge, holding 20 to 30 people and traveled 15 miles up the Werre River to Bad Oeynhausen. In Bad Oeynhausen, they would have boarded a barge of the same size on the larger Weser River and traveled north for 155 miles, arriving in Bremerhaven.
