Ellis Island

Now that I know Agnes' last name I continued on with my research. I went to, it is a free site. Since I have the year if birth for her I got an accurate record for my great-grandmother. Her ethnicity is galicy. She is originally from Wieozazrice, Germany. Agnes came over on the Friedrich der Grosse, a steamship from Germany. She arrived August 31, 1901 at the age of 21 and unmarried.

The image above is a postcard of the steamship that my great-grandmother travelled on.

I am now wondering if I am trully Polish like my father is saying were are. There is still my great-grandfather Peter to search for, but so far I am coming up with nothing. Hopefully, the Princeton Town Hall will be able to help me find the grave marker of Peter.
