Nationality & Ethnicity

The nationality of Fischer can be very difficult to determine because regional boundaries change over time, leaving the nation of origin a mystery. The original ethnicity of Fischer may be in dispute as result of whether the family name originated organically and independently in various locales; for example, in the case of names that come from a profession, which can crop up in multiple places independently (such as the family name "Dean" which may have been adopted by members of the clergy). The Fischers also known as the "Fishers" came to the US in 1854 with other companions such as the Welders, Carrisers, Clerts, Orbersons and the Selmions.

I am looking for a girl I knew in the 1960's. Her name was Jane Fischer and she lived in Broomfield, CO. She spent summers in Whitefish, MT with her grandmother, Mrs. Neville. We had so much fun together those summers and I've always wondered what happened to her and would like to find her. If you know how I can contact her, email me at [contact link]. Faith Meyers Adams

Hello, I am looking for information about Nicholas Fischer and his wife Magdalena Scheller. He lived in Manhatten, NY and had 5 sons - Nicholas, Anton, Leo, Charles and Raymond. He was my 2nd great grandfather. I have very little information about him.
