thanks so much for your message. I have been in contact with both Al and Gordon via E-mail. My family comes from Arzl in Austria and later moved to Oberhofen. I was in Austria in November to see my family and have done some research on the family name Krismer. It was just amazing how many Krismer's there are! Almost every little town had Krismer's and I am not sure how they are all related. I have also noticed that the name has changed in several areas to Krissmer or Krismar. I am actually the first one to come to the U.S., everybody else in my family has stayed in Austria. I came to San Diego in 1997 and plan on staying here. I just love it!
Was nice to hear from you. Hope to keep in touch.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and your family!
