Between 1840 and 1890, some 85,000 converts emigrated from Europe during 333 emigrant voyages on Latter-day Saint-chartered sail and steam ships—perhaps 50,000 from the British Isles, 20,000 from Scandinavia, and 6,000 from continental Europe. From 1847 to 1868, at least 329 wagon and handcart companies moved more than 60,000 believers to Utah; afterward those gathering to Zion came by train.
