Steve Schmidt.. I finally figured out how to get to the answers.. by clicking on the bold print of the question... that mystery solved. I appreciate all the time and trouble you and Mr. Gill and may others took to find the info you did. I have the census info on my father and his ship info... that is not what I was looking for, and there are so many mistakes on the info contained. My father may have thought his mother was from Germany but she was not she was from Poland, and I have traced her side of the famil back at least 4 generations, so while they may have at some point originated in Germany more than a century ago.. that whole like that I found was from Poland..
