to my genealogical homepage! This is no 1:1 translation of the origin german sides. I prefered to summarize my family research and introduce you to some specific questions in the anglophonic areas. And these are of course the emigrants of our family.

3 brothers of my great-grandfather Christian PETERSEN emigrated to North America and I really would like to find out more about their destinies...
They were leaving one by one in the 1880s. Two of them settled in Chicago, the oldest moved to Southeast Colorado.
(Castle Garden - New York´s Immigration Center until 1890)
Please have a look for some Photos and
