Dear Katarzyna,

My grandmother was the only one in her family born in the USA-- her brother and sisters were all born in Parchwitz,Prussia which is now called Prochowice, Poland. Her mother's name was Anna Louise Tilgner born 21 July 1862 and she married my great grandfather, Robert Paul, in Goldberg on August 2, 1885. Are these towns near Breslau? Have you ever heard of these people? They came to the USA in 1890. We would love to know more about our family history and be able to narrow down our search since Prussia was such a big area. Thanks for your help. Sue
