Dear Lisa,

I was so sad reading your reply.

From my research and that of what my family has told me, I continue to believe that the dates on my great grandfather's headstone buried in the Catholic cemetery in Bundaberg, Qld, is proof that no matter what the shipping records, that we not accurate and also destroyed in Bremen, Germany because of the wars, that my great grandfather Carl was born on the ship.  My beautiful dad recently passed after 87 years of loving his family.  He told me the stories passed on by other members of his family how his grandfather was bought out to Australia.  To this day, my research stays true and I will continue to hold on to that, as only family members who have heard the stories which have been passed onto generations speaks more than any media could.  I am proudly tonight, holding on to this for my dad.  He loved his family so much and I know that his ancestry is true. 

The night dad passed away, I told him that he will soon be with his family he loved so much.  I am so grateful for everything I found out for him and for all of the people that assisted me on the way. 

Life will never be the same without him.
