Fleischers in Norway
Posted by: Tim Fleischer (ID *****6182) Date: June 15, 2010 at 11:50:05

My great-great grandfather came to Madison, Wisconsin before 1855 from Norway. He was the consul to Wisconsin from Norway. The Fleischers fled Germany to Norway, but I do not know when or why.

Any help on the history of Germans in Norway and the Fleischers in particular would be appreciated.

My father's cousin tells me that the original American immigrant was a Baron, but that may just be family legend.
