Anne, My name is Jeanne Dyer. My Mother's maiden name was Leis (Father - Peter Leis(z) - Mother - Eva (Leptich) Leis(z)). Peter arrived in New York on the ship George Washington on April 7, 1914 and traveled to Chicago. Eva arrived in New York with their children Franz and Filip 7 year old twins, and my mother Elisabeth 2 years old aboard the ship: Kaiser Wilhelm, on June 17th 1914 andjoined Peter in Chicago where they settled.
My grandmother, Eva had a sister Katherine and a brother Nicolas, that I can remember. She may also have had another sister Margaret - but I'm not sure.
I would love to know more about the information you have been able to gather from the old parish registers in Ujpanat. Look forward to hearing from you. Jeanne
