I'm a beginner looking into my father's family KANKUS >from Mlawa and possibly Warsaw. My father came to Montreal in 1913 or 1914. After a year or so he went to New York, and then in 1919 eventually settled in Los Angeles.
I shall be on the East Coast next month and wondered if it would be worth making a special day trip to New York to look at genealogy records in the Public Library there? Would there be anything special that I couldn't equally well find on the Internet or in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I live?
