Really. A poster's profile page lists the past time they signed which can indicate likelihood of a response. I'll post statistics before the list shuts down in March 2020. Years ago I posted information how in some eras German-WI families could watch regular newspaper columns to see when relatives or friends on a known ship & travel date left a German port and arrived at a US port, almost in real time. (Transatlantic telegraph cable was first installed in the 1850s, but reliably successful in 1860s-1870s). You can also collect advertisements in the German language newspapers that may match your family's ocean travels. The Norddeutschen Lloyd Line advertised in Milwaukee papers. Their 1870s advert. includes pending trips & dates for ships named: Braunschweig (Capt. Undütsch), Nürnberg (Capt. Jäger), Liepzig (Capt. Hoffmann), Ohio (Capt. Meyer), Berlin (Capt. Pohle), Baltimore (Capt. Andressen). Ticket prices were: Cabin passengers, $100 Gold Below deck passengers $30 currency Children 1-10 years, half-price Infants $2 The steamship company's promotion infers how a German-WI ancestor may have traveled from Baltimore to Wisconsin ... [translated] "The Baltimore landing berths of these steamers is also the depot of the Baltimore & Ohio Railway, which carries passengers to and from the West at cheaper prices than any railroad from New York and Philadelphia." US Railway adverts. are found in many decades of publishing. ------------------------------ Date: Tue, 14 Jan 2020 20:03:06 -0600 From: Gary Rebholz <gary.rebholz@gmail.com> Subject: [GERMANS-WI] Look-up request "Map Guide to German Parish     Registers" Vol41 To: GERMANS-WI is a list for finding resources or families connected     with German immigration to Wisconsin <germans-wi@rootsweb.com> Message-ID:     <CAHSMVVY0-U9WKeBUyqyMz-Yw5-nq4bTG5Eh1gvLfhbwb4=EMTw@mail.gmail.com> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8" My library is somehow missing a volume of the series: Guide to German Parish Registers; Kingdom of Prussia; Prov. of Brandenburg I, Vol. 41; K. Hansen. If anyone has ready access to Vol 41, can you identify the parish for the town of Reetz found there? I already have the information on the Reetz found in Vol. 42. If possible, I'd appreciate a scan of the title page and the parish info. that includes Reetz. I'm zeroing in on a brick wall for my GERMANS-WI Manthey family.
