I am 30yrs and in Hattiesburg, MS.My parents originated from chicago, south suburbs Oaklawn.I have brother in Mobile, AL Jeff and a sister in Cincinati Ohio Janel.Janie and Jerry Schaar, my parents are in Biloxi, MS, both born in 1941.My dads brothers, Ron Schaar, and wife Virginia Schaar are in Oaklawn, IL along with only son Steve Schaar and his wife Sue Schaar, they have three young daughters.My uncle has 4 daughters,two married and two still with Schaar name, Gini and Vicky.And surviving grandmother Marie Schaar.Our story, well what I heard from it, is my dads grandfather had brother but were split for religios beliefs, we were Baptish and they were Catholic.My dads father Harry Schaar had no surviving brothers or sisters, all died at young age. and his father didnot keep relations with his brother. We never knew any of distant relatives with the Schaar name because of relations lost in the early 1900'sMy father said though, that at a funeral in Chicago south subs he meet some of those distent relatives which would have been distant cousins.They also looked much alike, my mother said.
If any of you read this and have information that relates back to these families from Chicago area please let me know. We have been very curious.There are about 500 listing nation wide of Schaars, thats realy not alot, but Im sure many of us or all of us are related in some form or fashion from a long time ago.
