Henry migrated from Hannover, Germany in about 1836 with two brothers. They are believed to have entered through New York and may have separated after entry. Any leads would be greatly  appreciated!

Hi there. I can't hep you with your quesiton, but I wanted to say that I am related to Henry Moss. I was born in 1970 and he would be my great great great grandfather (if my estimation is correct).

Was Henry Jewish or Lutheran,when people immigrate often names are

Americanized,Moss could have been Maas,Mass,Mose,Moshe.If he was

Jewish likely it was Moshe,Also first name could have been,Heimerick,Heinrich,Henri,Heniel.I assume you are related.The positive

we have date of birth.Problem in Germany,Synagogues,and Churches do

not sell there info too Ancestry and Family Search etc.Anything you know could be of help.Do you names of brothers.And Immi year.

I have nothing other than the information that is posted on Henry's profile except for the fact that a professional German genealogist found a community of Roman Catholics named Moss in southern Hannover Electorate -- none of whom had given names with any similarity to Henry.
