Hello all - i am looking for descendants of Louise Catherine HESS dob 1892 - she is sister of Elsa Charlotte Hess dob 1894 Weisbaden, germany.
Their father's name was Louis Philippe Henri Charles dOB 1870 Bierstadt.
The family moved to Antwerp, Belgium around 1900.
I am the grand daughter of Elsa Charlotte Hess.

Hello Anjella.
Have you checked for matches with other members by using 'search all trees' - found in search box above.
If all research will be in Belgium, I would add that to your heading.

thanks Jan.
I am about to add Belgium to the heading.

She may not have any descendants......

I assume you have this from family search - their immigration into Belgium?

Full names father as stated, (1870), Louise Catherine Caroline (1892) and Elsa Charlotte Albertine (1894)

There's a tree (Campbell family) on Ancestry with your grandmother, but not her sister.

Hello Flip.
yes I did find this in the Immigratration records for Belgium and also I have made contact with the Campbell family whom I am visiting next year. so looks like i am up to date with this enquiry. ( i was hoping that she may have had children and therefore some descendants).

thanks for your information.
