Telling my family's stories
This is the passport application for Bernhardt Berlandi, who apparently desired to visit the old country in 1869. This likely was because of a death in his family or some other family emergency. Unfortunately, passports in the 1860s were not very detailed, and no mention is made of where he was born (other than ‘Prussia’), and where he was intending to go.
