I have seemed to hit a brick wall. I am looking for my ggrandfather who was born in Germany approx 1897, Joseph (Josef) Kostner. He immigrated sometime in 1906. He left Liverpool, arrived Sault St. Marie. His name was changed to Joseph Forster. He was raised by Martin and Rosa (Gmeiner) Forster. I do not have his parents names. Nor do I have any siblings names. His mother died when he was young. There has been some thought that he had a brother named Francis Kostner (who changed his name to Frank Gmeiner/Meiner/and eventually Frank Miner) Francis parents names were August and Anna (Gmeiner) Kostner.
August and Anna and Francis left Liverpool - arrived Sault St. Marie in 1906. Anna died and August remarried. Francis went to live with the same Martin Forster family as Joseph.
I am wondering if you would have these people in your line at all. Would love to hear from you.
