Hi Jeff,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

Munson-2970 and Mohnsann-1reference merger.

I have some questions as to whether Johannes Mohnsann is the husband of Hannah/Anna Dorothea (Unk) Munson. I am aware of the list of 1832 passengers who arrived in Baltimore, Md. I sent you a personal message. Hope we can compare discrepancies.

Hello Jeff,

I'm looking for info on the Key West, Florida Munson/Mohnsann family from Germany. My 2nd g-grandfather, Charles Frederick Munson, was a brother to the Florida sisters. Any help would be appreciated. Ronnie "Ronnalee" Brothers
