Charles Wagner was born in or near Pozan, Prussia (now Poznan, Poland) around 1830.  He immigrated to Sterling Heights, Michigan in 1867 and then to Fair Haven Michigan.  He died around  1880.  His wife was Franceska Tijinski (Wagner) although his first wife died after his children were born.  His children were Wilhelm, Albert, Stephen, Augusta, Theresa, and Julia.  I am at a roadblock.  I have searched immigration records.  Does anybody have any tips ?  European websites?

Hi Ruth,

Try [ http://gedbas.genealogy.net/] This will open a search page where you can search by name and/or place. Entering Carl Wagner (without the place) gives three pages of results.

Also, [ http://www.germanroots.com/index.html] may give you other possible resources.
