Jean Jacob Fink and Ester Campeau
I just found your site on immigrants from Germany to Canada listed in the 1881 census.
One of the persons, Jacob Fink, is my great-grandfather, born 1820 not in Germany but rather Lingenau, Austria.
I realize both countries were one at a time which is probably why Jacob Fink is either down as German or Austrian.
I have a copy of the chuch register from Lingenau. I am indeed fortunate to have this document.....it's thanks to
a great librarian in Bregenz, Austria who looked up the info for me. Unfortunately, I don't have all that much.
I will dig out a picture of him and his wife and also a copy of the ticket for the trip aboard the Oneida from
Le Havre, France. You can use them on your site........
Just a note, if someone else should be researching him.
