> Milt - thanks for the advice. By the way Milton was my father's
name. I have more information now on my family. My grandfather,
Joseph Michael Stern came to the US in May, 1889, on board the SS
Columbia and entered the country at Port of New York. He was born
and raised in Hamburg, Germany, and naturalized in Philadelphia, PA
on 1-JUN-1903. His parents names were Meyer Stern and Sarah Fromm.
From the 1900 US census I found out the following: He married Sonnie
Stern (no maiden name, born JUL-1862), birthplace Germany; Sonnie's
mother, Ernesine (I believe it to be Ernestine), was living with
them born in Germany in 1849.
In the 1910 census: they had one child, Frieda, born in Philadelphia
PA in AUG-1899. Also living with the family was the sister-in-law
Betty Ngel, listed as being single, born in Germany in 1876 and
immigrating to the US in 1891.
Any information anyone has is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the
Regards, Barry Stern
