ELTZSCHNER is an alternate spelling for the surname ELSCHNER. In the Elschner family history book I have both spellings are used. It appears as if there were two branches of the family (one 'ELSCHNER' woman married an ELTZSCHNER man - possible cousins).

A story circulating in the family is that two ELSCHNER/ELTZSCHNER brothers had a falling out and split the family into two branches which never seemed to reconnect. Possibly brothers named Max and Morris, although these do not seem to be family names and I cannot find a reference to them.

There are also several other spelling options,but the only one I have reference to in the family history book is OELSCHNER.

The Elschner family has (in its possession) a Coat of Arms, but no references can be found that tell us what it was awarded for or when or any history of it. (Image with my profile).
There is a family 'story' about the Coat of Arms, but I have yet to be able to substantiate it.

Anyone with anything that may help, please contact me.
Thank you

Dear Barbara, Hi. The closest website description of this surname was at this link:-

Historical Names

There was Oehlschleger and Elsner etc, but not the exact spellings you have. Sorry.

Iknow. There seems to be nothing in any of the databases i've looked into. I have been working on it for some time now and asside from my mom's Ahnanpass and a copy of a family history from 1933, nothing. It really is amazing that nothing appears anywhere, it is an uncommon name. There is a line from Milwaukee, but it is from a different branch. Thank you for trying.
