I'm looking for ancestors named Streisel. George Streisel, born 15 Jan 1899 married Elisabeth Spasojevich (sp?), born 14 Feb, 1900. She was from Zagreb, Croatia, but I believe he was from Salzburg, or somewhere in Austria, because they lived there at one time, and my father, Otto (Joseph), born 17 Mar 1941, was born there. Some of their children were known by two different names, and I am not sure if the "American" names were picked when they immigrated, or if they were actually named both names at birth, and used the more American sounding ones when they came... they were Slavica-Louise, Eleanora-Lela (who remained in Yugoslavia), Helen, Dragica-Karoline, Otto-Joseph, George and a baby who died called Olga. They cam to America sometime between 1948 and 1958, when my grandfather became a citizen (claiming "stateless-Yugoslavia" as the former nationality on the certificate of naturalization.) My father was about 7, but may have been older. I don't know if my grandfather had siblings, but I do know that my grandmother had at least one sister, called Jefica (pronounced yef-its-ah).
Everyone is gone, now, so I have no way of questioning my relatives, but would appreciate any help in tracing this branch of my family tree!
