BM> Glad to hear your ancestors were hard working people but I must ask one
BM> question. Did they, like so many, apply for a permanent residency visa
BM> at a US Embassy in Germany and wait ten years for it to be processed OR,
BM> did they travel to Hamburg, hop on a frigette, take the trip to NYC
BM> (less Lady Liberty), get off the boat and catch the next wagontrain to
BM> Albany?

I honestly do not know if there was a US Embassy in Hamburg, way back
then in Germany. I would like to find out as I have been wanting to discovery
about family history, and I wonder if I have relatives that exist in Germany.

BM> Really? Did your ancestors have documented paperwork by the US Embassy in
BM> Germany before stepping foot on US soil?

I could ask you the same question did your ancestors, did they have the
required paperwork from the US Embassy in Ireland before stepping foot on US
soil?

I have a question for you, does any of this matter now, because we are both
Americans. I would think that both of our ancestors came here through ellis
island.

I wonder what would of happened if one decided that they wanted
to take the thought process of today's undocumented immigrant and just
had the thought to themselves, you know what I am not going to ellis island to
be processed, I want to skip the lines, jump out of the boat and swim to
shore.

All I can tell you Bill, we are a sovereign nation of laws, if the laws are
ignored then we have no country.

BM> Right now there are many industries in the country hurting due to this
BM> insane policy.

It not a policy, it's the law. You will be prosecuted if you come here
illegally.
