Message to other Haenickes
I would like to hear from other Haenickes.As far as I can tell, there are less than 20 different families in the world who spell their surname "HAENICKE."Most Haenickes live in Germany.There are 2 or 3 Haenicke families in the USA.There are the Haenickes that live in Kalamazoo, Michigan, which are the family of Diether Haenicke who immigrated to the USA from Germany in the early 1970's.Distant cousins of Diether live in and around Pittsburgh, PA, and are the descendants of Wilhelm Gottfried Haenicke who immigrated to the USA from Germany in the 1870's.These Haenickes now spell their name "HEINCEKE."The only other known Haenicke inthe USA is Maren Haenicke, a young woman from Germany (relation to Diether unknown) who lives in Houston, TX.
We have records containing vital information on the Haenicke family back to the 1600's.The earlies known Haenicke was a farmer near Crossen, on the Oder river (today part of Poland).
I would be happy to share and exhange information on the Haenicke family.
