Welcome Annie

The 1920 census I reported earlier shows my Wainer Grandparents living in Maine. It also shows the years that they arrived in the states.  I reported my Grandfather William arriving by train in an earlier post. My Grandmother is listed on the 1920 census as having arrived in 1911. Here is the record that I believe shows my Grandmother Annie Ostafyczuk arriving in the U.S. in that year.

This fits with just about everything that i know about my Grandmother. It also says that she was going to live in Boston which is where she ended up marrying my grandfather William and having their first three children.
