Pam, I am replying to your somewhat old posting on the Schaar page of GenForum. Although I don't have any help for you (I'm still new to this game) I am a Schaar and from MI. My grandfather was Inman Schaar b.1/29/1905. His father was Charles Schaar, that is were I'm stuck. Charles had a "homestead" in the Farwell, MI area.
That is all I know, but as I am just beginning my search maybe I (or you) will turn up something that will benefit both of us. I will keep you in mind as I do my search, and if you should find any connection, please let me know.
