Hello all,

I'm looking for IMMIGRATION info on a Pauline Z. Gruntz

born c. 1887 in CANADA to German parents

emmigrated in 1891 or possible 1895

According to the Census, she lived in Brooklyn (1910) and then Passaic, NJ (1920)

married in 1913

i could not find her via Ellis island so i'm guessing another route?

any help would be appreciated!

Possibly? I think this german ancestor will come as a "surprise" to the Irish/Italian person i'm researching for... so i don't have much other info to back this up... but it looks correct based on what i know

thanks Smile

Huge family..I think on Ernest's birth certificate it lists his mothers sister or brother's name..trying to make it out.




Can anyone make it out..I am having a few "issues" here to night with my eyesight (ok..so I left my glasses at work again and I can't see to well without them Embarassed )

Oh wait..it says Mary, sister of the child..

Do any of the documents state when they got to Canada?

Or what part of Germany they were from?

Mauro, I just can't seem to find anything on their arrival. We'll just have to keep digging though.
