Research notes I have been doing family research for about 12 years.  I have found everything I basically can in the US/Ancestry records.  I am now trying to find European records and narrow my search there before my trip to Poland next year.

My Great-grandmother, Julia Grams was born in 1866 in present day Poland.  I have different towns/villages that she may have been born in.  Posen, Golancz, or Sypniewo, Wielkopolski??  Her mother was Anna Newman and father was Wilhelm F. Grams.  Her 2 brothers were Christoph (b. 1864) and John (b.1870).  Her sister, Rosalia, was born in 1873.

My great-grandfather, Franz Ciura, was born on Dec. 25, 1859 in Posen, Poland.  he left Poland when he was 18 and moved to Germany.

My great-grandfather, Adolph Knappert, was born Feb. 9, 1859 in Rogzow, Koeslin, Germany (now Poland).  His parents were Christoph Knappert and Frieda Schuette.

My great-great-grantfather, Franciszek Jelesynska, was born in Aug of 1855 in Poland.  I do not know where in Poland, however.
