Hi, my name is Maria Cool and am currently doing geneology on the Hammes family. My grandfather was Bernard Hammes and my mother was Irene Hammes. So far no luck on tracing anyone further than John Adam Hammes 1774. I did however come across a news aryical that said prior to 1625 the name was Hammanns and that name was the founder of the Hammes family. His roots can be traced back to Moselle Valley in Germany in 1500. Hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Take care.
