Hello Juergen:

I do not understand German very well....but in perusing the genealogical e-mail that comes to me ,my eye caught the name HAGEN.
Is this a place or a family name? I have been told that I have a forebear by the name of " von Hagen", way back in the early 1700s in Westfalen , in or near Bielefeld . On the other hand, perhaps it means that a forebear came from Hagen. The other names in direct line of descent are: Henseler, Aleweld,Maffry.
If you think you have any information that would be of help to me, please reply.

Many thanks
