My grandfather came to the U.S. at age 16yrs, in 1893. His name was Carl John Zoller, DOB Sept.22, 1876. He came here alone, without family, and anyone who might have known where exactly he was born, has passed away. All documentation I can find, just says Germany. As far as the family knows, there were at least 2 brothers, and 2 sisters, names also unknown, who stayed in Germany. On Granddad's death cert. it lists parents unknown, and obit says place of birth, Seegingen Germany.(I have been told there is know such place) It could be that his place of birth sounds like Seegingen, in English. I was told he had a brother that was in Bavaria in the late 1930s, but they lost track of him, the other brother, and my grandfathers parents, had already passed away by 1941, when my grandfather died. If anyone has any ideas, I am open to suggestions, or if this rings a bell with anyone, please let me know. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Marcia email@example.com
