The "Holy Grail" right now is finding out where Leonard Schilling (b. 1863) came from. We haven't been able to figure this out. Of course we'd like to trace the tree back to Europe. Don't know if it's Germany or Austria or somewhere else.
I've been searching the web for information on Len (wife was Magdelina also b. 1863) on the internet and haven't yet been able to pin point where he was born.
I'm looking now for his "Naturalization Papers" which was a document renouncing his alligence to his home country and pledging alligence to the U.S. I've looked through a number of these but can't find a "Len" or "Leonard".
This/These are the main objectives right now. Collecting ANY information is helpful and uploading it to this site.
