Léa Seydoux is a French actress. Her parents are both of mixed French and Alsatian German ancestry. Her father also has around 1/8th Spanish-Venezuelan ancestry.

Léa’s paternal grandfather was Jérôme Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne (the son of René Seydoux-Fornier de Clausonne and Geneviève Schlumberger). René was the son of Jacques Seydoux and Mathilde Fornier de Clausonne. Geneviève was the daughter of prominent businessman Marcel Henry Émile Schlumberger, of the Schlumberger oilfield company, and of Jeanne Laurans.

Léa’s paternal grandmother was Hélène Zumbiehl (the daughter of Robert Zumbiehl and Fronilde Louiza Anzola). Fronilde was the daughter of Eloy Anzola and Luisa Montauban, and was of part Spanish-Venezuelan descent.

Léa’s maternal grandfather was Rémy Schlumberger (the son of Maurice Schlumberger and Françoise Monnier). Maurice was the son of Paul Schlumberger and Marguerite Pauline Ernestine de Witt. Françoise was the daughter of Andre Monnier and Henriette Thuret.

Léa’s maternal grandmother was Diane Vuillet (the daughter of Henry/Henri Vuillet and Henriette Mezzara). Henriette was the daughter of Charles Mezzara and Florence Koechlin; Florence was the daughter of Alfred Koechlin and Emma Schwartz.

Léa’s paternal great-great-great-grandparents, Paul Schlumberger and Marguerite Pauline Ernestine de Witt, were also Léa’s’s maternal great-great-grandparents. This makes Léa’s parents second cousins, once removed.

I forgot where but I saw someone was descended from a man named Joseph Mary Heim, born November 25, 1868 in Strasbourg France, and died July 18, 1940 in Buffalo New York. I was wondering if he is French or German or even French Canadian. Would someone please find the geneology of him? His father is probably Andrew Heim.

And once someone does find the geneology please reply back because I am interested to see his geneology.

I was wondering if you could use your sources, to find out if shannon Elizabeth was really part Cherokee?

Thank you for that but do you think that you could possibly find more about his parents, Andrew Heim, and Madeline Thebault.

Also if you’re at it, another celeb was descended from a man named Gustav(e) Muerder/Mürder born October 17, 1875, in Schlat Germany and died January 28, 1918, but he was an illegitimate child. He took his mothers last name but not his fathers. His fathers name is probably Bartolomaus Haeck or Hossle. Bartolomaus is supposed to be of German royalty. Do you mind trying to find the geneology of Bartolomaus? Thank you in advance

Could someone Please try to find the genealogies of Bartolomaus Hoessle/Haeck, Andrew Heim, and Madeline Thebault, because I’m really trying but it’s really hard. Everyone else is like really good at it, so could someone please help me???!!

How’s she exotic? She looks like a prettier version of Amanda Seyfried, not exactly what you’d call exotic
