Hi Betty,
I do have one Peter Haehlen b. about 1750-1757 in Canton Bern. No wife listed, nor parents. If I'm reading the ancestor chart correctly it looks like he had a son David Haehlen, baptized 1777, Lenk, Canton Bern and there are more generations listed from David. If you would like this information it would be easiest for me to make copies and send it to you US mail. Please let me know. This information came from a Jacob Kynett Haehlen of San Diego CA and is dated January 1991. I have never corresponded with this gentleman and I doubt that he is still living. His Haehlen line and mine are probably related but I don't know exactly how. When my family and I went to Lenk Switzerland in October 2002 for the 400th year Hahlen/Haehlen family reunion we were the only ones from the USA. And in spite of all the family tree work done by the reunion organizers they had not figured out the link to my Hahlen branch (from Diemtigen and Boltigen) even though they claimed there was no doubt that we were related. The impression I got was that the reunion organizers had not focused their research on the Hahlens that emmigrated to the USA. There was also a group of Hahlens from the Netherlands at the reunion and they could not figure out their link to the Lenk group either. One of the key reunion organizers and keeper of the massive Hahlen/Haehlen family tree is Marcus Haehlen. If I'm remembering correctly he lives near Lenk. His English is good and he may be able to help you more. Please e-mail me privately if you would like his e-mail address. Please let me know how your efforts progress. I have quite of bit of information on my Hahlen branch but it is not well organized and not entered into a database yet. Having another Hahlen researcher to correspond with would be a good incentive for me. Wendy
