My ancestors, John and Anna Duhr Weinbeck sailed from Hamburg on May 12, 1885 and arrived in New York on May 25, 1885 on the ship Westphalia. If you are interested, I have a history of the ship. Anna came from the town of Tielen, near Erfde in Schleswig. Most of her family came to Clinton, Iowa where their descendants live today. Is any of this of interest to you?

> Hello. One of my ancestors arrived in NY on Dec 12 1872 (ship - Westphalia).
> He, his wife and their children eventually settled in Iowa. Census records
> show a variety of locations as place of birth for various members of this family
> (Holstein; Schleswig; Prussia; Germany...probably all true ). Worse, the
> surname is nearly unsearchable, e.g., Magbier.
