Hi Ann,

I am a Eland descendant.

My great grandfather was Frank Eland, born in I believe in March 19, 1856. (it may be a couple years off -- some records are off). He married Francis Hintz (b. 11 May 1865).

I live in the Detroit area and just spent this past weekend at the Burton collection in Detroit which is has custody of many of the church records, marriage licenses etc. Unfortunately I came up dry on my side, but I usually take picture of anything 'Eland' in Detroit.

The one census I have shows my gr grandpa from Danzig-Germany, and a great aunt told me that they spoke Kashub. BUt I need to find the actual town or village and wan't able to find any records so far with this level of detail.

Let me know if this has any familiarity with the Eland's you are searching for.

John Gach
