    • These Biskup family members arrived on the ship Gellert. [more details]
    — At the time this Biskup family immigrated to New York in 1880, they were coming from Posen. Previously, Posen was a province in the Kingdom of Prussia, in 1871 Posen became part of the German Empire. Eventually Posen was part of the Free State of Prussia within Weimar Germany, and later part of the Second Polish Republic (Treaty of Versailles), and the remaining German territory was reorganized into Posen-West Prussia in 1922. Today, it is Poznań, Poland.

    • Important Parent Information re Ignatz Biskup:
      1880 immigration records show Michael, Josephine & Ignatz arrived in New York from Germany, with Josefine age 55 (born Est. 1825)...Michael age 60 (born Est. 1820), and Ignatz age 21 (born Est. 1859)...with a destination of St. Louis, United States.
      1910 census in St. Louis shows the only Ignatz Biskup in St. Louis as born April 1859 living with his wife Caroline and 6 children (including Ida who later married George Schwartz), and his mother named Auguste Biskup from Germany, age 74 (born Est. 1836)...showing clearly that Josefine Biskup who Ignatz immigrated with was not his mother. It is also possible that Michael Biskup, also immigrating with Ignatz, was not his father. It may be that Ignatz was traveling with an uncle and aunt, or with his father Michael and a sister of his father named Josefine.
