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

Jeff, do you happen to speak any Slovak or other languages? Would you check out our languages template and add it to your biography? For example you might add

{{ Languages | en | sk-2 }}

to the top of your biography if you speak English natively and intermediate Slovak, or you could use de-4 to specify near-native German or ru-1 for basic Russian, and so forth up to ten languages.

It really helps to know who speaks all the different languages used on WikiTree! If you only speak English, you're very welcome to use this text to make that clear:

{{ Languages | en }}
