Greetings fellow Mildner. I just chanced by your request....I've never been to this site before. I've done some searching and I can trace a Mildner that immigrated to nj or NY in about the 1850's. I know that at that time a large number of germans did so. I'd have to look at the info I've collected but I have a register for a home in NY in the 1880's.
