Dear Petroff researchers, my friend, Arleane Petroff, is interested in tracing her family history. She knows that her father, Samuel PETROFF, was from Sofia, son of William and Mae PETROFF. William and Mae remained in Bulgaria, but Samuel and some unknown brothers came on a cattle ship and entered the US through Manitoba, Canada about 1912. He settled in Plymouth Co., Iowa. In the 1920 Census he was living in Sioux City, Iowa.
Samuel had two sisters, and about five brothers. One brother came to the US and returned to Bulgaria.
Can anyone link with this family? Any help appreciated!
