    I am very sorry to hear of your loss.

    Sorry we couldn't help before the 18th, crrellim. I will have a browse and see if I can find anything.
    Do you know if your grandad crossed over to the US directly from Algeria ? Or did he cross from Europe?

    There is a site somewhere (I will dig it out) and it lists the Ellis Island records of new arrivals.
    I can also dig out some French records for you if he crossed over from France.

    Could you supply any dates? They don't have to be exact, I can post what I find and you can see if your grandad's family are listed.

    Hope this helps
