Leopold & Austrian: An Interesting History of La Pointe with Amorin Mello at Madeline Island Museum
Leopold & Austrian were a well known family of Great Lakes merchants and shippers around the turn of the 20th century. Join us for an inquiry into the early years of the Leopold & Austrian family empire on Madeline Island before, during, and after the 1854 Treaty of La Pointe.
Topics include genealogical research, land records research, the 1854 Treaty of La Pointe, and the La Pointe Iron Company.
Followed by a question and answer session.
Our presenter, Amorin Mello, is an author of the Chequamegon History website, lives and works on the mainland nearby, has no family connection to Leopold & Austrian, and just likes to read old handwritten documents during his spare time.
