I re-read your posts recently in all these threads......
I recently checked the 1904 ships manifesto with an Apolonia Schell listed (in which you may already know of), it turns out she was 4 years old when she came over from Hamburg on the Blucher Nov. 30 and was with my great grandfather Adam and my grandfather Pius, and Anna my Great Grandmother...there were 17 in all that came over that trip. I remember my dad talking a lot about his Uncle Konstantin and others....we are somehow related I just do not know how exactly, probably distant cousins.....I do not know how all 17 are related from the list.
I am really interested in our origins before and during Volga Russia, just trying to connect all the dots.

if you would like to exchange any history, info or stories about our families.
