Hans Family

I am researching The Hans Family Tree. My husband's father was David Hans (MI), son of Clarence Hans(OH), son of John R.Hans (OH). I believe the John R.Hans family came from Canton,Oh. This is as far back as I've been able to go. My husband thinks that the name may have originally been Hanselman (Hanselmann), and that his ancestors came from Germany. If anybody has information about this family, please contact me. Thank you.

Hi Dorothy,
I am sorry but I do not recognize any of the names in your message. My Hans family was originally Hanselman. It was changed by the 1st generation born in the United States (my great grandfather). The origninal Hanselman (in my family) who emigrated to the US, was John Hanselman, who settled in Cleveland, Ohio. He was born in 1851, and came to the US in 1869, at the age of 18 years old. He married Augusta Priebe in 1874. They had a son, John R., who changed his last name to Hans. Does any of this look familiar to you?

Yes thats right Hans is a German name,
we where here in Germany Saarland so long i can think,

1645 in Germany known as Bauernkrieg.

Greetings from Germany Christian Hans

Unless you have evidence to show that your Hans relatives are of Germany ancestry, I wouldn't make that assumption. I descend from Hans ancestors and always made the same assumption until I started researching and found out the name was originally Hand, which is English. Various records listed the name as Hand/Hann/Hands and finally Hans.
Thought it may be helpful (to your search) to mention this.

hallo,

las bij toeval je bericht en zag dat je naamgenoten zocht.
Mijn familienaam is ook HANS zoals je ziet en van oorsprong afkomstig uit Nederland in de provincie Overijsel, nabij de Duitse grens.

translation:
mij family name is also HANS. The name comes originaly from the Netherlands, province of Overijsel, near the German border.
Hope you will re-mail me.

Helaas komt de voornaam niet in mijn familie voor. Voor zover na te gaan heb ik geen familie in Duitsland. Oorspronkelijk komt de familie HANS uit Oost Nederland, dichtbij de Duitse grens. Zal mij niet verwonderen dat er dus wel familie in Duitsland woont van vroeger.
