About Our Family Research

My family search has ended with a grandfather, Joseph Baldwin who married Sarah Delaney in Portland, Me Nov. 24, 1880. I can find no mention of him in any research tries before 1878 living in Portland, Me. Where he was born is a mystery. His father, george is also a mystery. On the Kench side, I recently have found him and a brother in the Ellis Island transcripts coming from Europe. He was called Joseph but the records prove him to have entered the U.S. as Ossip Kenz--a non-English speaking young man from Russia/Poland.
