My Great Grandfather, Joseph F. Kohl was born in Austria in 1860, sometime in his life he moved to America where his wife Vincencia Puhair gave birth to their child Frank James Kohl. I was wondering if anyone would have any information on what immigration was like from Austria.

Would they have went through Ellis Island as many other immigrants did or was there a different way?

Also, does anyone have any information on Joseph F. Kohl and his immigration or family?

As a new user be sure to take the Tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format which is quite different from bulletin boards, discussion forums and other Q&A sites you may be used to. Please try to ask a single focussed question. In this question I think you should ask only about how you can learn about immigration to the US by Austrians, and then in a separate question you could ask about Joseph F. Kohl specifically. Perhaps that question could be about seeking an immigration or naturalization record for him. – PolyGeo May 25 at 23:01
