I’m a student at Northern Michigan University and I’m helping with a project on immigrants who moved from the Austro-Hungarian Empire to Michigan.
The Austro-Hungarian Empire included parts of what is now Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Poland, Romania, Italy, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia, and Montenegro.
I’m trying to track down images, preferably taken before 1918, of immigrants and their churches/homes/businesses/etc. If you have any old photographs that you would be willing to share (or contacts with historical societies that might have photographs), please contact me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
David was born in New York about 1824 to 1829. He was married to Fidelia Copeland and had two sons, Chancey b 1854 and Nelson E b 1856 in Michigan. I would like to know who his parents were and if he was married before. I believe he was married to others and he gets lost in all the loose ends that are created because of this.
