My grandfather REINHOLD BENKE emigrated from Piotrkow, Lodz, Poland on 19 Jul 1913 to Canada via Hamburg. His brother JULIUS BENKE 29 Jul 1884 emigrated abt 1907. Both were single when they emigrated.
We would love to know more about their parents. Information we have is limited to:
Father: JULIUS BENKE b 09 Mar 1859 Piotrkow, Lodz, Poland, d. 1943. Mother: ROSALIA RITKE
I have a photo of the family in Poland, parents with 8 children (2-3 possibly adults), and a grandfather wearing 2 medals. Photo was taken prior to Julius emigrating.
Thank you for any help you can give us!
