Hello, my name is Joanne,
My grandfather was a Leissner born in Arnhem Holland 16/10/1922 died 8/1/1990 in Melbourne Australia. He had two children Gerrit Maria (Ria) my mother,they immigrated to Australia in 1955 with his wife Maria Wilhemina Jansen-Vreeling. After my mother divorced my father my grandparents took us three kids in and raised us as their own. That is why I am also interested in my family tree. Who knows there may be a connection here somewhere. I have more information regarding my Leissner cousins if you are interested. Regardless, could you please reply yours thankfully Joanne Lourens-Leissner.

Hi, Thank you for writing, I am sorry, but I have been without a computer for quit some time and am only now getting back on line. I do know that my father in-law told me that his father was one of three brothers that came to the Seguin, TX area, another name was Schultz...I think his mother's name. He is 85 and doesn't remember much regarding names, places or dates.....Have a great day.

hi,
i asked my aunt, who still is alive.Robert was a brother of my grandfather.,Charles Johannes Leysner.Charles went to Surinam and Robert to the USA.
In Surinam the government wrote Leissner wrong and wrote it Leysner, so my mother was Leysner.
My grandfather came from Germany.He has also family in Austria.My mother was borne in 1920, my aunt in 1913 and an uncle of mine, who lives in Miami , he is older.

I forgot to write you that my grandfather had also a lot of children just like your grandfather.He also had children with other women., possible your grandfather also and maybe you don't know that.
