Ross / Oldenburg


Auf der Suche nach familien Roß und Oldenburg, die in den 1880er Jahren emigrierten. Adolf Edward H. war ein Bauer, seine Frau war Amelia "Emilie" nee Oldenburg. Sie gingen nach Illinois in den USA. Manche denken, Adolf hatte Brüder, die nach New York gegangen sind, aber das ist nur Hörensagen. Ihre Eltern mögen Carl und Emilie heißen. Seine Eltern mögen Eduard und Henriette, Hartmann gewesen sein?

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Ross und Oldenburg


Any idea where they were from in West Prussia? How do you know that they were from there? If more information is available please let us know.
I also have Ross or Roß ancestors from W. Prussia, but as far as I know no members of that family emigrated to the U.S.

Have you already checked the huge Einwohnerdatenbank [database of inhabitants] you can find at ? Maybe you are lucky and discover some members of your family.


Try different spellings, e.g.

Adolf = Adolph; Edward is Eduard in German
Amelia could also be Amalie
Roß = Ross
