I can't comment on most of Gary's post but the mention of Alsace Lorraine
struck a nerve. My ggf was a German born in Rozhysche and married to Alvine
(or Irina, or Alwine) Mroch (or Mrock) and my first family lore reference to
my ggm indicated that she was from Alsace Lorraine.
found no trace of her or her parents, ancestors in Europe. Only
documentation I have on her is U.S. census, her Cook County Illinois death
record, and her name on birth certificates of her children.
I have a wedding photo of my ggparents but nothing else about ggm Alvine's
There's an Alsatian-American list on rootsweb but I've only had some
tantalyzing posts that proved unfruitful.
I don't give up but just don't know where to go next.
