My great grandfather, Benno VonZatorski, arrived in Baltimore, MD on Sept 15, 1887. He was single and 26 years old. Although we know of his arrival via the SS Maine the records that would have provided us with his date of birth, parents names and home town have not been found. I have a copy of his personal "business card" that includes his Coat of Arms that seems to match that of Oswiecim and there is a town in Poland called Zator and a Zator castle.
We are planning a trip there in a few months and we are trying to find where my ancestors actuall lived.
Any asistance you can provide, including suggestions as to where we my go or whom we should contact to gather information will be truly appreciated.
