* Seelig family from Honesdale, PA and other related families*

Updated March 12, 2004

Jost Seelig was born in Wertheim, Germany about 1600. The Seelig family remained in Wertheim until the 1800's when some began immigrating to the US where they settled into Honesdale, PA

This research is primarily about the direct decendents of Jost Seelig. However, there is considerable information on the Becker and Brisbois families from the Lorraine, Region of France who are my Maternal ancestors. Other last names include Andre, Bache, Born, Conrad, Cron, Dahler, Erhard, Gilmartin, Gisi, Greiner, Hiegel, Kraus, Dress, Oberhauser, Pool, Schneider, Seltzer, Stebe, Thumser, Undreiner, Wiessler, Wonhard, and Zimmerman who are maternal grandparents or ancestors of my wife Jean Gilmartin.

A history book detailing the experiences of the families immigrating to US is portrayed in the book "Need to Succeed" by Lou Seelig and is available for purchase at

Please contact me if you have any information or comments on this page or the book.
