A hint on genealogical research

I recently heard about a book called "The Book of Germans" which contains the ship lists of emigrants to the U.S. which all seem to have landed on Ellis Island.

So, if you are American and in search for your ancestors, you'll might want to look up "your" emigrant there, which will make it easy to find out whether another Klawitter in the U.S. is of your branch.
