Found in NY later found In NC
© Linda Haas Davenport Aug 1998
Several years ago I hired a researcher in PA to research the HAAS name in PA. Here is the information I received. (Don't bother to e-mail me and tell me what a sorry job this paid researcher did. I KNOW). Many of the names found in these records were later found in Lincoln, Burke and surrounding counties in NC. The researcher DID NOT give me any information on where she located these sources, I "assume" it was in the PA archives although the records are from NY.
