> Hello List,
> I must say these lists are most informative and have given me insight to
many websites and hints to further my ancestral search.
> I have been searching for these people (families) and find no ships
records. I have check numerous ports of departure and entry with no luck.
Maybe I am missing something.
> Sophia (Maria Catharina Sophia Dorothea) ADAM b 1843 Saarbrucken arrived
(according to family) age 15 in 1858. She married in Aug. 1863 in NY so
could have arrived after 1858. She was the youngest child so don't imagine
she would have traveled alone. Other siblings remained in Germany. I have
her entire history except when she arrived, the port and ship.
> Her husband Henry (Heinrich) SCHIRMUHLY (schermuly) b 1839 in Germany,
Prussia, Baden, Bavaria according to various records, I find no immigration
date. According to his CW military records his father was Heinrich and
mothers first and second name unknown. I have Henry's history after US
arrival but nothing prior.
> Nikolaus Beaver (Biewer, Biwer) arrived in 1871 with his wife Katharina
Adler and 5 children Johann, Peter, Maria, Margaretha and Nikolaus. Records
give no date, ship, port of departure or arrival. I have their history back
the 1600's except arrival.
> HELP......maybe I missed a site or just looking in the wrong place. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
