Looking for descendants and ancestors of Michael Sisson / Cicon (1869-1941) and Anna Stefan (1871-1934) both from SLOVAKIA

I'm interested in finding descendants or ancestors of Michael Sisson (Mikjo Cicon) and his wife Anna Stefan. Both families are from Slovakia. Anna is thought to have been born around Babafalu, Slovakia on 30 Sep 1871 to Andres Stefan and his wife Barbara Gogol. Michael (Mikjo) Cicon was also from Eastern Slovakia, possibly an area around Kosice. He was born 11 Nov 1869 to Michael Cicon and his wife Mary Popovitz(vich). Both emigrated to Pennsylvania around the 1890's, married and made their home in Minneapolis. I would love to make that connection in Slovakia if anyone can help.

Looking for info on Claus Herman (Larsson) Bolin Family

My grandfather was George Henry Bolin (1893-1942 born and died in MPLS) whose parents were Claus Herman Larsson and Augusta Wilhelmina Fredriksdotter (born 1859 in Foglagrden, Valstad, Vstergtland, Sweden - died Mpls, MN 1931). The family story goes that Claus took the name Bolin when he came to America because there were too many Larssons!


Similiarly, most of Augusta's brothers took on the last name Moberg in America. Augusta's parents were Fredrik Larsson (1828-1919)and Lotta Johansdotter (1834-1920). Her parents both died in Tidaholm, Vstergtland, Sweden. I am looking for any information on either of these two lines. Either back to Sweden or descendant lines here in America. I have a lot of information to share especially on the pedigree of Augusta and would love to hear from you! Both lines seem to go back to Vstergtland, Sweden.

George Messier/Machie/Macha/Macey & Philomene Brousseau Lines

Hello from a Messier descendant from Minnesota. I welcome contact with any researcher who is interested in the Brousseau or Messier Lines. I have much research completed on the descendants of Augustin Brousseau (1820-1903) and Leocadie Bourgeois / Bourgis (1821-1912). My research also includes much information on the descendants of George Messier / Macey / Macy / Macha / Machie (1841-1919) and his wife, Marie Philomene "Phoebe" Brousseau (1852-1901). Many family lines have been completed as well as pedigrees back to France. I'd love to compare notes with people researching these same lines! I am related through William Francis Macey Jr (1903-1972) whose father was William Francis Macey (Francois William Messier) (1883-?) whose parents were George Messier/Macha/Machie (1841-1919) and Philomene Brousseau 1852-1901. Philomene parents were Augustin Brousseau and Leocadie Bourgeois. So lets connect!
