Hi!! I'm super excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.... I'm connected to Mina Kaima, :-) Jacobs wife....i think she's my great great aunt..... As far as I can figure out Mina and the kids were going to meet Jacob when they came over. They travelled with Wilhelm Bojarzin who is listed right beneath the kids on the passenger list!....it said on the ship manifest that he was going to meet with his brother in law Jacob Kaima. I'm not sure if Mina is a Bojarzin or a Weigel (my great grandmothers maiden name). My great grandfather came from Klein Shiemanen, Kreis Ortelsburg,Ostpreussen.
My grandmother (great) came from Niedenburg, Ostpreussen. her name was Karoline Weigel. They were in Gelsenkirchen 1900-1910 for sure.
I'm thrilled that you had Jacobs birthdate. Do you have it in family records?
I've been finding information that is leading me to believe 'Kaima' is Finnish ...whether or not it is ... Who knows :-)
Would you happen to have information on where they were married ... What year?
I look forward to talking to you!! :-)
