Any luck so far? Do you have any idea where in Germany your Michels are from?My GG-GF Jakob Bossong married Phillipina Michel (b. 6/22/1825) in Schallodenbach, Pfalz, Germany.It's their sons who emigrated from Germany to Pittsburgh, PA in 1880. Jakob and Phillipina never came to the US.As far as I know, no one from my direct family line with the Michel surname came to America.
If you want to know more about my Michel ancestors, please contact me.
