Happy Hanukkah to All
I am trying to trace a family WITTGENSTEIN >from Liebenau in Germany who
emigrated to the United States in the late 1800's.
Meyer WITTGENSTEIN, born 1813, arrived in New York >from Bremen in on a boat
between 1868 and 1871. This record appears in a book listing all passengers
from Bremen to New York between those three years.His Eldest living son David, born 1845, arrived in New York on March 15th
1866 a couple of years earlier.
His wife Maria, nee WITTENBERG born 1814, and three of his daughters,
Emma, Caroline & Helene, arrived in new York July 16th 1870
After their arrival, I can find no record of them anywhere. It is likely
that they changed their name. His Grand Nephew, my Grandmother's brother,
who came some 60 years later changed his name to WHITNEY.
If anyone has any ideas or leads that might assist me in tracing this
family, I would appreciate any help. Please reply privately
