The family of my greatgrandmother, Anna Loretta Wittlin
(09/08/1877-09/15/1970) is being currently traced. I have
her grandparents, Burkart Peter Wittlin (03/07/1818-
07/12/1878) and Catherine Degan (10/16/1816-02-27-93),
both born near Basel, Switzerland who were the first Wittlins to arrive in America in 1845. From New Orleans they came to Germantown,WI and then moved on to Appleton, Outagamie County WI.
One of Burkart Peter's sons was another Burkart, born
in Germantown WI (01/18/49) who was the father of my great-
grandmother Anna Loretta (Etta).
I am seeking information on the specific ship that the
Wittlins arrived in New Orleans on, and where exactly in
Switzerland they are from.
