Her name was Lydia Scheske, and she was born in 1895.  Her parents were Michael Scheske and Emilie/Amelia (Bartz).  She married Adolph Miletzki (born January 24, 1894 in Moscow, Russia), and had 4 children.  Both of her parents also came to the U.S., and I have found her father's passenger list.  Michael was born August 5, 1861 in modern-day Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland.  Emilie was born abt. 1869 in the Russian Empire.  Lydia came over with her brother Edward on the S.S. Hannover.  Sailed from Bremen, Germany on July 5, 1912.  Arrived on August 7, 1912 in Philadelphia, PA.  To my knowledge, they were all Germans by ethnicity.
Thank you so much,Ashley

  Ashley, Can tell us on what passenger list you found your GGgrandmother - the port and date of arrival.  What as her name.  Personally I would like to have a look at the residence as it was written. Rose

Hello all,
I am trying to find out where my great-great-grandmother was from. Her passenger list has her birthplace and last residence as Solotiok, Rogatschew, Walh., Russia. I cannot find this town anywhere, and cannot find a name close to it. She sailed from Germany. I am pretty sure Walh. is short for Volhynia. I found a Rogatschew in modern-day Belarus, but that is as far as I have gotten. Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you in advance for any help,Ashley DeRigo
