Hi Barney: Barney, you are playing roulette asking if anyone on the list might know about your GGP and the town he came from. You need to have some facts from the States and that is where you are lucky. In ESS EFF you have the Herb Caen Library, where you can find Obits going back to the 49ers. Look for your GGP's Obit, it is likely to indicate where he came from. My GP came to the states in 1867 on the Bremen, a sailing steamer. There are many articles about the Bremen in the library's archives. The Herb Caen Magazines and Newspapers Center (5th floor) has magazines, newspapers, phone books and San Francisco City Directories. 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 · Ph: 415-557-4400 http://sfpl.org/librarylocations/main/mags.htm Next, you have the California Genealogical Library (Sutro Library). It is one of the largest and best in the West. I found my GP's name on the passenger list of the Bremmen. I found my other GGP and GP's marriage records there (from Missiouri). If you can narrow down the date your GGP arrived, you can very likely find a film with his ship and name on it. They are in chronological order, which makes it easier if you have a date. Sutro Library 480 Winston Drive San Francisco, CA 94132 The Sutro Library has one of the largest genealogical collections west of Salt Lake City with extensive resources for states other than California and basic resources for California. The California Section of the California State Library, Sacramento, has more materials for California history and genealogy. http://www.onelibrary.com/Library/calslsut.htm Then you have the National Maritime Library out at Fort Mason. The have copies of the Lloyds Registery and photos of ships no one has heard of. They had a photo (yes a photo) of the Bremen, when it was once in SF. I alsofound many photos of the USS General Mann, the ship I went to Korea on. Many of the photos were of the (cruse) I was
on, but I didn't see my mug. J. Porter Shaw Library at the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park http://www.maritimelibraryfriends.org/ At the corner of Laguna and Beach streets San Francisco, California 94123 OK, now lets go south a little. You have the National Records center at: http://www.archives.gov/pacific/san-francisco/ 1000 Commodore Drive San Bruno, California 94066-2350 Finally, there are a lot of historical churches in SF.Marriage records could very well be in one of the Historical Churches in SF.
You have the City and County of San Francico for many other records.
I would start with the obits and marraige records. Good Luck, Gale Walnut CreekWas at the Fog City Diner a couple of weeks ago, Farley and the Bears were not there.
