Waiting to start research on my overseas ancestors!
I am researching the Staffa surname. The earliest person in my direct line is John J. Staffa, coming to the states in the early 1800s from Prussia. He was married to Antonia Schiendler and had three children, Adolph, Antonia, and Emil Alois. The area where John J. Staffa was born is now in Poland. I am making myself wait on all ancestors outside of the United States so that I either exhaust myself on US relatives first, or give into the curiousity. To make matters worse, my grandmother just allowed me to look and copy through her family history files from the 1960s. Hers have certificates from the Czech Republic that I can't read, although I hope to remedy that soon.
If you are a descendant of Adolph, Antonia or Emil Alois, let me know and we can work together! I have so interesting documents to share . . . pictures, naturalization paperwork, birth and death records!
