SCHIFF family in Hildesheim, Hanover #germany #general


dmjacobs@...
 

I have hit a brick wall on tracing the origins of my 2nd great grandfather, Charles (probably AKA Carl) Schiff, at least on this side of the Atlantic.  I’m looking for suggestions on resources that might be available in Germany, or people who can help. The information I do have is summarized below.  No luck finding a manifest.
