I wish I had been able to find out from my grandparents who came over, when and how. I know my father's side came to Canada from Scotland or England. I know my mother's side came to the states from Germany, but I don't know when, how, or where they entered. My dad was a naturalized US citizen. They moved to the states when he was 12 because his mother's health was failing. The doctor said she needed a warm climate. They moved first to California, then Florida where she passed away. My great grandfather was a mayor in New Jersey, so I'm not sure how that worked. I know that it was my great grandparents that first came over, but when I don't know. I'll try to find the books that you mentioned, then try to find the time to read them. This dang work thing gets in my way
