Ignace Faltyn, my maternal grandfather, arrived at Ellis Island, New York, USA May 11, 1895 on the ship Palatia from Hamburg, Germany.  He had departed from Sejny, Poland leaving his wife Anna (Moroz) Faltyn and his daughter Anna Faltyn (then age 6 mo) behind.  They were to join him later, arriving at Ellis Island on June 29, 1898 on the ship Koningin Luise, pictured above.  Marion Faltyn, my mother, was born In Saginaw, Michigan 4 years later
