I would like to join as well, but I don’t have much to contribute right now. So please let me know if I can help in a different way.
In the meantime, I’m researching my Great Grandmother, Therese (or Theresia?) Mann from Germany. She was born on 23 December 1871, her parents are Martin and Elisabeth Mann. I have found a Theresia Mann listed as departing from Bremen and arriving in New York in Aug 1889. Therese married Jacob Strasser (1869-1951) in August 1893 in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Therese died in February 1902 in Ross Township, (Pittsburgh area), Pennsylvania.
I suspect Therese was from the Bavaria area as my Great Grandfather, Jacob Strasser, was from Gimsbach, Pfalz, Germany. I have searched for Therese, but haven’t had any luck so far. I’m waiting to see what information is in the probate documents and church records that I’ve ordered. But if anyone has suggestions on how to find her, I would greatly appreciate it. I’m also willing to help others, so please let me know.
