In a message dated 12/6/2005 3:48:01 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
Researching John S. EICHLER, born about 1843 in Hassen, Germany.
I am new to researching and could use some suggestions.
What would be the best sources to research a person who immigrated to the

family or in that period of time would a young boy come by himself?
Would the name be in a passenger database and which one if it is? What
would the possible port of entry for someone coming from from Germany during this
