Emigration from Durrenbach 1872 / 1873

by Richard Schneider
(Florida USA)

My great-great grandfather emigrated from Durrenbach Alsace said to be leaving Durrenbach 26 Dec 1872. His name was JOSEPH SCHNEIDER. Parents were Ignatz Schneider and Catherine Mundweiller. I am interested in trying to locate information on his exit from Durrenbach to the USA (1) passport and permission to leave Durrenbach (2) exit port and ship he travelled on and its destination in USA and date of departure (3) a baptizmal certificate from St Bartholomeu in Durrenbach and information on the family cemetery plot and possible photo of it (4) what his house address was and how it passed from family member to member when one died and possible photo of it today.

Can you offer any suggestions on above of how and where I may research some of this information.

Thank you
Dick Schneider
