Re: Gisi in North Dakota
I'm Julie (Gisi) Sinkler and live in Montana...originally from New Rockford ND.This is the first day I found this website and think it's great.You have listed that your great grandmother is Eva born in 1847. I have a page that I received from a census from 1816 (research done by Author Joseph Height) which lists colonist Anton Gisi, age 48 years who emigrated from Ft. Louis/Bischweiler, Alsace (France) to Mariental, Russia, with his 2nd wife, Katharina, age 27.It shows he has two children, Anton, age 20 and Katharina, age 16.This young Anton must be your gr. grandmother's father.Who are your gr. grandmother's family (sisters and brothers, etc.)I can't seem to find where my gr. grandfather, Jacob's family comes from. He came to the States after my Grandfather, John Gisi, was born (sometime after 1888, probably as late as 1898?)I've been told they went to Canada first and then to the Harvey/Selz, ND area.I've worked on this on and off for about 30 years (since I was about 15) and would sure like to find that blank area between 1816 and 1888. Please email me at email@example.com if you know anything.
