Jost Seelig was born in Wertheim, Germany about 1600.The Seelig family remained in Wertheim until the 1800's when some began immigrating to the US where they settled into Honesdale, PA
This research is primarily about the direct decendents of Jost Seelig.However, there is considerable information on the Becker and Brisbois families from the Lorraine, Region of France who are my Maternal ancestors.Other last names include Andre, Bache, Born, Conrad, Cron, Dahler, Erhard, Gilmartin, Gisi, Greiner, Hiegel, Kraus, Dress, Oberhauser, Pool, Schneider, Seltzer, Stebe, Thumser, Undreiner, Wiessler, Wonhard, and Zimmerman who are maternal grandparents or ancestors of my wife Jean Gilmartin.
