My name Is Sylvio Arnoldo Dick Jantzen, I am 57 years old and was born in Jaguari, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. My father, who is 80 has some documents of the Jantzen ancestry in Rio Grande do Sul. The Jantzens that immigrated into Rio Grande and Pelotas were from the border between Fance and Germany (Elsaß). Ferdinand Jantzen was french and married Elisa Poock (german) in Hamburg, and both crossed the Atlantic. My grandfather (who had the first name Sylvio too) was a grandson of that Ferdinand. When I talk to my father again, I will could more exact information, especially about datas and places of birth of this lineage.
