Leeman name in Alsace
Posted by: Bernard Leeman (ID *****3495) Date: February 21, 2005 at 05:00:13

The website below (in French)says the Leeman family name in Alsace means Lion and originates from the Hebrew name Judah.

As I said in earlier postings, some of the Ulster Leemans appear may have had Alsace Jewish ancestors.
