I just got started the search for my familyhistory. My last name is Hiers, and I live in Europe, in Belgium. My grandfather, his brothers, and their children and grandchildren are the only Hiers in Belgium. Are there Hiers' in the States that are descendants of this Belgian branche? Or can anyone tell me if the Hiers family in Belgium is in anyway related to the Hiers family in germany, Sweden or Denmark?
