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!

Some websites for your research which you might have or not.
A map of Austria-Hungary
Austria's phone site : Croatia's phone site
Just out of curiosity, take a look in Ellis Island website. You need to register but no money is involved. There were 11 SPASOJEVICs.
Germany's phone book is listing STREISEL.

I also am looking for ancestors named Streisel. My grandfather Simon George Streisel was born on March 26, 1885 in Poland. I have no idea when he arrived here in the America but his first marriage was to Elizabeth Riess on July 24, 1917 in Saskatchewan, Canada. At one time during my childhood he spoke of a brother and a sister but never did discuss it after that and none of his children ever new much more about him. The only thing I have been able to translate from his tattered baptismal certificate is that his father's name was John Streisel and his mother's name was Mary Magdline Burkhardt. Let me know if youwould liek to compare notes.

Are there still Streisels living in St. Louis and did you grow up there or in Europe?

Your original post is from 2004 and you say then that all your relatives on that side, (father and aunts/uncles) are deceased? That would mean they all died fairly young. Are you looking for medical information?

I may have a connection to you.
