Hi my name is Leanne Oeschger from Adelaide, South Australia. I thought I'd do a quick internet search and see if anything came up with 'Oeschger' because I think we're the only people in Australia with the name!
My father, Frank Oeschger is from Basel, Switzerland (born 1951). He moved to Australia at the age of 11 with his parents, Pius and Leni, and his brother John, who all returned to Switzerland some 10 years later. They still reside in Basel.
My father decided to stay on in Australia and has lived here ever since. He is married to Elaine, and along with me there is also my brother, Matthew Oeschger.
So hello to all Oeschgers out there, wherever you may live!
