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.

Clark, had a daughter born in michigan 1868 her name was Agnes B. Wright, moved to San Antonio Tx, Bexar was a bartender there, a son was borned in 1883, his name was Eben W. Wright, other than what I have I can not find his parents or hers.
Thank you Ginger L Wright (great granddaughter) of William D Wright
