Ah! a linguistic and geography lesson all in one. All kidding aside I do appreciate your reply. I had a death certificate for one of my grandfathers sons issued in New Jersey and that's what it gave for a place of birth. Yes I do need to geet a map for that time frame. I have just started my mother line. Since she was first generation American all of my research will be in that area.
