Hedwig Geissel
« on: Sunday 11 December 16 04:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to find info on Hedwig Geissel, I believe she was born in Germany and was an artist having seen one of her paintings with her name in the bottom left corner.

I have failed to find anything about her, I have no birth, death or parents for her so it may be a stab in the dark,

I would appreciate any info that is on offer,

Thank You

Cienna

What sort of date range are you looking at?
1900's? 1800's, 1700's?

There is this entry on MyTrees:

Than you KGarrad for your reply, according to the person who has the painting it's the 1900's, I did come across what you posted to me and I am inclined to think it may be her and her family.

The owner is just trying to find out a bit about Hedwig.

Regards

Cienna.

Hi, I am from Tasmania in Australia and also have a painting by hedwik geissel.
Unfortunately I don't have any information about her and are very interested if you have found out any more about her.
The painting we have is of a vase and flowers.
