Geese Early Origins



The surname Geese was first found in the Rhineland, where this family was a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always influential in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it forged alliances with other families within the region and the nation. Alsace Lorraine was their original birth place.
