(So what's with the goose?)

Is your last name Ganse, or are you related to a Ganse? The Ganses in the United States whom we've come across to date are all related on a well detailed family tree that begins in 1821 with an immigrant from Darmstadt, Germany. The tree is a cumulative work of a few Ganse extended cousins, some of whom filled in widely disparate parts of the Ganse tree before ever meeting each other. (The internet is great fun for such connections.) If you're a Ganse and would like discuss to family geneology, please feel free to email.
