In Reply to: Looking for my OSNER family by George Osner of 271

George: At first look these do
not appear to be Osner(s) you are
looking for. However, the following
10 arrived Mar 31 1852 on the "Amelia"
from Havre. Manifest #00018088.
Caroline (13) F
Cathrine (24) F
George (3) M
Jacob (9) M
Johann (7) M
Johanna (10) F
Mathias (53) M
Peter (3) M
Rosine (33) F
Valentine (22) F

You mention that he died in 1918. How
old was he? (From that we can figure
approximate birth date.) From certain
census pages it can be determined when
he arrived in the US. Parents, brothers,
sisters--any names to associate? Marriage
date? Detectives need clues.

You can review a printed transcription
of the Passenger List of the "Amelia"
in the appropriate volume of 'Germans
to America' available in many large
Public Libraries. The books are arranged
in date order. "The New York Times"
probably reported the arrival of the
'Amelia' in the "Marine Intelligence"
section of the newspaper (on or near the
back page). The microfilmed newspaper
is available in many large Public Libraries.

Good Luck,
