I have relatives that say they were born in Gostin, Russia; others from Plock Poland; and others from Louisenthal(--tal when in German control, Russia.
My grandfather Jakob Streichert was born in Louisenthal Russia but that is only from immigration records. Most of them were listed as in the hospital on the ship over from Bremen. Several were detained at Ellis Island--but alas I have not found any death notices and I assume they either died or were sent back. Paula
