Hi Glenn, I just now saw your post on the GYSEL forum.
Do you know the particulars about your Gysel family in Chicago, i.e. vocation, location in Chicago, how long they lived there?
My hubby's mother (Pearl) always said she had GYSEL relatives in Chicago.Pearl said her relatives were BIG in city politics, like a police chief, fire chief, or something of that nature.She didn't bother to mention whether their name at that time was Gysel or if a woman with married name.
Somehow, in my conversations with her years ago, I recall her mentioning a Catherine (Katherine), but just not sure.
