Hello, I'm looking for any information on a Leemann family who immigrated to San Francisco, California from the Zurich area of Switzerland in the 1860ís. Members of this family that I do know of are the two parents and three kids. Iím hoping to find information about there descendents back in Switzerland. As for where in Switzerland the family came from, Iíve mainly heard Zurich, yet three places have been mention in their death records and obituaries: Zurich, Canton Zurich, and Russiklon, Switzerland. The parents names are: Henry Leemann from Russiklon, Switzerland who married Anna Firehier from Switzerland their kids: Julius Leemann born 1841 came over in 1864, August Leemann born 1846 came over in 1869, and Bertha Leemann born 1849 came over around 1870. I know most of all the roots of Julius, August and Bertha in California if any one wants to ask. So thanks to anyone that can help.
