Hanson Family Tree

Leo Leland Hanson's birth certificate lists his family name as "Hansen" which is accurate. He began using the "son" spelling sometime in his early teenage years and continued to use it the rest of his life. Consequentially all his children's birth certificates list "Hanson" as their birth name. Leo Leland often used his confirmation name as a middle name and thus was also listed as "Leo Joseph Hanson" on some records.
