Re: Heisz/Heiss family Germany to wisconsin
I have reviewed the names in our family tree and cannot find a Dwight Heisz. Approximately what year was he born? Some of our family moved from Ontario to Alberta, Canada in the early 1900's and could have had a son who moved to British Columbia. The name of the person who moved to Alberta was Albert Heisz. He was my grandfather's brother. Of possible interest to you, Albert's father was named Lawrence (Lorenz). He came to Canada from Alsace Lorraine (a province of France where German language was spoken). After living in Canada for a while, he moved to Buffalo New York where he was brewmaster at the German American Brewery. When he retired from there, he moved back to Canada and is buried at Mildmay, Ontario (a small village in the Bruce Peninsula near Lake Huron) He had a large family. Some of them remained in Buffalo and the others came back to Canada. Thank you for replying to my enquiry. If you can give me any more details about your dad, I will see if I can make a connection.
