Annette Hahn Lindsey - have you tried Family Search (free)?  How about a passenger list? let you search multiple databases even when you have almost no information.

Have you checked for a naturalization record?

Hello everyone, I am researching my dad's Hahn family. His GG was William F. Hahn, born in Germany around 1846, arrived in U.S. around 1859, moved to Escambia County, Florida, around 1866 - that's all according to a naturalization document. His tombstone says he was born in 1846, but I haven't found anything that gives an exact birth date. His obit says he was a native of Berlin. I don't feel like I have enough to go on to try to order a birth certificate from Germany. I don't have a paid membership to Ancestry, but I use it at the library. I haven't figured out how to navigate yet. I found one census record that other researchers think is him; in 1870 Census he was living in a boarding house and listed as being from Louisiana. Maybe that's where he first lived in the US, but I don't know. And I can't find him or his two oldest sons in the 1900 Census, which could have narrowed down his birth date. Any suggestions are welcome!

Yes I copied & pasted.

No, her first husband that died coming home from the war. Thieme was her maiden name.

Joy Rehm Benninghoven, ;your ancestor Carolin Louisa Thiem Froede Rehm.  Am I correct to assume Froede was her Mother's Father's last name?

Maybe they weren’t links.  Just copy and pasted info?

How can I fix this so you can?

Joy the links aren’t working for me.
