I am trying to find out information on my ancestors. They were from Prussia. On the 1870 census, my gg grandfather stated his was a US citizen but his parents were foreign born in Prussia. My gg grandfather's name was Philip Gottheimer he would have been born in 1844.
I have been trying to find information about this family. I know they were Jewish (German Jews?) He married my gg grandmother, Isabelle Baswitz. Her parents were Maurice Baswitz and Minna Brun. I found him on the 1870 census in Omaha Nebraska. My grandmother Hattie Gottheimer was born about 1882 in Omaha. The Gottheimers and the Baswitz must have met in Nebraska, however, I could not find the Baswitz on the 1870 census for Nebraska. Can anyone gear me in a right direction? Thanks for your help. Gerry
