How did you complete research for Immigrant in Peril?
Much of Carl's story was recorded by the Tangeman Family Historians in The Carl Heinrich Tangeman Genealogy 1821-1899. In addition, I conducted interviews and used ancestry.com.
Are you going to write a book about the next stage of Carl's life?
Yes! This spring I began serious research into details of Carl's life after 1850. I spent over a week in Ohio pursuing primary documents in libraries and courthouses during March-April, 2019.
