Hello Roger, How are you? I'm responding to a post you left about 7 years ago regarding the Hafts'. I haven't logged on for a long time so I apologize for not responding sooner. During the time since I've last logged on, I found out that you are right. Haft is NOT of German decent. I was able to speak to my father Michael Adam Haft, over the phone a few years ago and he gave me a little more info but couldn't give me much because he himself is not too sure. He said that our family came over here to America in the early 1900's and were Russian Jews. Like during the time of "fiddler on the roof". He said that they came and settled into New York and he was raised there until the age of about 6-7 years old then moved to Fremont, California. I lost touch with him. He stated that he too would like to know if he has any long lost cousins or relatives. We could possibly related! That would be great! Well, thank you for your kind response and I hope that we could keep in touch. Good luck in your search as well! Regards, Jennifer (Haft) Johnson.
