The Konigen Louise
*The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. www.ellisisland.org. 2008.
6 July 1901 my great-grandfather, Ignatz Lang, his wife, Franciska and their family landed on Ellis Island. They had just disembarked the Konigen Luise, which had left the Port of Bremen. Their ethnicity was listed as "Bukowrina" with their place of residence listed as "Pojanavictuli". Franciska was 6 months pregnant with her fourth child.
