The Genealogy of Joseph Hintz/Agnes Ratajczak, Bay City, MI Updated August 1, 2003
About Our Family Research
I have traced the family back to Joseph and Agnes Hintz of Bay City, MI.
The Hintz's emigrated to the US from Germany, when Joseph was 12 years old, in 1884. It is said they settled in St. Helens Michigan
Joseph had a brother Val, a sister Josephine and a sister Mary that moved to Chicago, IL. Four more children were born later to Joseph's parents in St. Helen's(I believe) -- John, Tony, Anne and Lillian.
The Ratajczak family emigrated from Poland and settled in St. Helens also, in 1885, when Agnes was 8 years old. Siblings include Stanley, Victoria (Gajewski) Josie (Zielinski) and Kate (Conley)
Any additional information would be GREATLY appreciated.
