I have started Haese surname project, please join me!
|My ggg grand-father Charles Jordan|
I have wondered about who my great great great grandparents were since childhood. In my mid twenties i went back to school once my son started primary school. It was during my first semester at uni that we were given an exercise of creating a 5-gen family tree. With the family I could find in a day or two I discovered I was at least fifth generation Australian.
|West Australian for generations!|
The origins of my surname and how it ended up in Australia and more importantly, a little town in Western Australia, gnawed at me. With graduation came the free time to research and discover my own personal roots. And I am proud of both my west Australian pioneering family members, my convict, my pensioner guards and warders, and my Prussian Lutheran ancestors who all very interestingly ended up in the exact same district three - five generations ago!
|Proud Prussian Descendant.|
Perfect little type for a transcription perhaps. This is here as an example for myself, and so it is easy for me to find in the future. If you are reading this then please ignore it. If you cannot ignore it then I leave you with this wonderful quote... "Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know." Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway also said "Write drunk; edit sober" What can I say - the man was a genius!

Please start with the New Member How-To - they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around. If the links in emails don't work correctly, check the public comments on your profile as the links will work from there.
If you click the green tags on your profile page, you'll see if there are other members following the surname. Add locations, Country, County or town the more tags you add the more links to community & research options
Take your time, and let me know if you need any help using the site. I'm always happy to answer questions.
