Julien Lucien Mercier emigration to Brazil
Geplaatst: 15 februari 2020, 20:16
My great uncle Julien Lucien Mercier (1 May 1879, Viazma, Russia-17 July 1954, Wood Ridge, NJ, USA) lived in Switzerland until age 17. He left Switzerland for Brazil at an unknown date and arrived in New York on 30 April 1898, via Brazil, just two days before his 19th birthday (via Ellis Island, name of ship from Rio de Janeiro: Hevelius). I am looking for information about his stay in Brazil, when he arrived, when he left, where he lived, what he did there? I cannot find any information online. Could someone suggest ways to go about it? Thank you very much.
