A. E. Jordan
If I recall correctly someone on the list has done some work in the Jewish records in Bay City, Michigan and the Courlander cemetery plot(s) there.
If so, could you please be in touch with me.
It appears one or more branches of my family went >from Courland to Bay, City Michigan for a period of time primarily in the late 1800s. Appears several children were born in the line in Michigan and more important that my ggm's sister might have died there. (Some of the family later moved east to the New York City /Norther New Jersey area.) The family name I am looking for is LAMPKE.
If anyone can help me out with the Michigan records I would be very appreciative. I might be able to trade some research in New York City or the NJ State Archives. Or I might be able to trade lookups in the incomplete by underway NY City area Courlander cemetery plots database.
