Now, remember back at that passenger list I found for an Emma Herrmann from the LUNDEN area of Holstein listed as a niece of that "Carotens Terlefs" on the Kaiserin Auguste Victoria that arrived in NY on March 8, 1909?! Really seems to add up now, huh? You may even eventually find out who Uncle "Carotens" is! :-0
Oh yeah, since that nice lady is in a generous, helpful mood, get all you can get and thank her profusely!
Do I hear champagne corks popping? LOL!
Persistence pays off - congratulations!
