Re: I can't trace the Milch family that arrived in America from Hruszow #galicia

Thanks to everybody that replied to my email request! As usual, people
were very helpful, and once again I found flaws in my method of
searching. What I've learned is that everybody needs to do the same
search, on both ancestry.com and familysearch.org . For example, I
had tried searching for the town name of Hruszow, and people living in
Massachusetts. That town name was on a WWI draft card for one of the
family members that I was looking for. However, only Familysearch.org
had transcribed the town name and put it in their database.
Ancestry.com did not!

Also, one person did find Abraham Milch listed as a father in Hruszow
birth records, in the JRI database. I could swear that I had searched
that database without finding him. I must have had snow blindness.
More likely, I was getting fatigued at that point.

Very much appreciated to all who responded.
