  1. My mother’s maiden name was Mabel A. Hamann. She was born on 30 December 1907 in Brooklyn, NY. Her father was John W. Hamann. I am trying to trace the family back to Germany..

  2. Hi Nancy,

    Have you checked the immigration records for your Hamanns? Hamann is a fairly common name in Germany. My branch came to Canada 20 years ago from Germany, but I’m not sure if there were any relatives who moved to the US earlier.
