The Twisselman family history in central California is associated primarily with ranching and farming in the Carrisa Plains and Salinas Valley. The first generation immigrated here from Germany in the 1870’s. It is a fun and recognizable name. We have met relatives here that can be traced to the 1500’s. Someday we hope to have more history at this site, but for now that big stack of papers, notes and books resides in a box at home.
If you are a Twisselman and visit the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, be sure to stop and say howdy! If you can’t come by, feel free to drop us a note at Matt@Twisselman.com.
