    Seeking immigration information about Ferdinand Holtz

    Jesse Holtz Newbie

      Hello! I am trying to find any information on my ancestor Ferdinand Holtz. I believe he immigrated from Germany in 1883 and as far as I know was born in 1856. I believe he died in 1934 in Minnesota. I believe He lived in New York from 1900 to at least 1930 from what I could uncover from census records.  His entire family lived and stayed around Mcleod, Minnesota area,Or possibly carver Minnesota. I have also discovered they had a farm there. I also believe this was his record I could find from coming over on a boat - https://aad.archives.gov/aad/record-detail.jsp?dt=2102&mtch=2&cat=GP44&tf=F&q=Ferdinand+Holtz&bc=sl&rpp=10&pg=1&rid=1193280&rlst=1972221,1193280

      I am looking for any information that would show where he came from in Germany so I can start tracing my ancestors back in Europe. I have a family tree that starts once he entered the US but nothing further back.  Any information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated!
