Hi Beth,

Thanks for replying to my message. I had some computer problems or I would of got back to you sooner. I got all my information including spelling from the Ellis Island website.

My Great Granfather's name is Alexander REITMANN. Ethnicity: German. Place of Residence: Rotatz. Date of Arrival: August 12, 1903. Age on Arrival: 40 years. Gender: Male. Marital Status: Married. Ship of Travel: Pennslyvania. Port of Departure: Hamburg, Germany.

I found the rest of the family coming in the year after (1904). Wife - Theresa and 7 kids. Residence: Bucharest. The oldest son - Franz came through Nov. 14, 1903. Three months after the father. Residence also listed as Bucharest.

I also posted this on the Germany forum and someone told me I should check his naturalization records or Declaration of Intention. Rotatz must be a missplelling or pronunctiation.

A little extra info. Theresa was born in Germany. Alexander was born in Austria. The kids, or at least most of them, were born in Romania.

If you could some how check the original, that would be great! Thank you for all your time.
