Re: Schmitt from Alscace Lorraine
Thanks for the response.That's part of the problem I'm facing.I know the daughter's name - Bridget Schmitt (or Freund, depending which family reference you have) but I have not been able to find her parents.
The book "The Cattell Family in America" by Donald Rogers lists Bridget Freund as being from an Alscace-Lorraine family.On my grandmother's death certificate (Bridget is my paternal ggmother) the mother's maiden name is listed as Bridget Schmitt.
Bridget is listed as being born around 1852 in Philadelphia according to TCFiA and the 1880 Census.Searching the 1860 census has not revealed any results.
As far as migrations from A-L to America... Do you have any references where I might be able to find some info?
