The Heisig and Olson Families

This website is devoted to the genealogy and history of the family Gregory Howard Heisig, son of Howard Lester Heisig and Betty Lou Olson, and their ancestors. His maternal grandparents (Ole Gullikson Olson and Marie Guro) were first-generation Americans immigrating from Norway and Germany. His paternal ancestors (Joseph Heisig and Matilda Gomolka) came from Germany, from an area that is now in Poland and Checkoslovakia.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Heisig Reunion, June 26, 2011, Token Creek Park, Madison

The Olson side of the family held a family reunion, the first of its kind in many, many years, in July 2009. Everyone brought family pictures and some of the reunion time was videotaped. Family members spent time telling stories of the past and sharing. A general good time was had by all, and we had lots of really good food.

I created a family tree for display at the Olson reunion, and a picture is available on the CD. The CD contains pictures and genealogy information from the reunion and from my research. The cost is $5.00 to cover the cost of materials and mailing. Please contact me by email for instructions if you are interested in obtaining a copy.

The information found here is based on family recollections and stories or actual documents, and as such, may contain some inaccurate information. If you have information to contribute to this website, please contact Anita Heisig at anita.heisig@earthlink.net. Information, especially obituary notices, photographs, and historical information is welcomed and appreciated.
