My Grandmother's Trip.


One woman had the courage to come to USA in 1910 from Germany. 

My Grandmother 1881 - 1917
It is through my research that I found out from her ship (immigration) records this woman came to USA twice.  She came over to USA in 1907 departing from Bremen and worked as a governess in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. She returned to Bad Freienwalde, Germany, around 1909 where her brothers lived. She returned to USA in departing from Hamburg, Germany August 31. 1911.  She married my Grandfather on January 12, 1912 in Washington County, Bartlesville, Oklahoma.  

She is from a small town outside of Dresden, Ruhland, Germany.  From old letter correspondence, she was enrolled in a girls boarding school in Dresden as a young girl.
