Both in Elblaskie.
Walter BRAUN was my grandfather's brother.
Without this alumni citation I could never have located the birth
place of their parents.   I have the immigration data and the birth

more records.
Emil Braun (patternmaker) & Matilda Dann  immigrated to Chicago in 1891.

Their children were born in Elbing/ Elblag  WP/ Poland

I am most appreciative for all the wonderful volunteers who have posted
to the internet that it made possible to find the info going past

Any help appreciated, Thanks one and all.
