In the Main tree I collect the result
of my research. It contains mainly individuals from the Heuser family
in Brazil including ancestors, descendants and their relatives.
The Heusers that appear in this tree are the descendants of three immigrants
that came from the small village of Enkirch, at the Mosel river, in Germany.
The first immigrant to arrive in Brazil, in 1853,
Franz Daniel Heuser.
Franz Daniel arrived as a single man at the German colony of Santa Cruz,
married there, and constituted a large family.
Some years later, in 1858, he was followed by an older brother,
Heinrich Carl Heuser, which is my ancestor, and by
Johann Philipp Heuser.
Heinrich Carl came with is family and went to the same
colony of Santa Cruz where his brother was alreday established.
went to a different place here in Brazil. It was a new colony, called Fazenda dos Conventos,
today in the city of Lajeado. I have no further information on this family. They seem
to have changed their surname to Heiser.
The german Heusers that appear in this database lived for several
generations in the villages of Traben and Enkirch
on the Mosel river.
The oldest researched ancestor is
Heuser that came from a village called Wahlscheid. There were
several places in Germany with that name and I could not identify which one
is the place of origin of the family.
