- Dec 10, 2007If your grandfather was born in 1908 in the US then he should be in
the US 1910 census with his parents. The census record lists the
country they were born in so that would give you the info. need on
your g-grandather. Should also have his age listed too as well as
immigration yr..sometimes marriage and naturalization is there too-
so you really need to start with the census. Have you looked on
ancestry.com? That's where I got all of mine.
