Welcome to the web site covering the history of the Hayde family.  This site contains genealogical material on the Hayde family.  It also contains references to surname variants as applicable.

More than 20 branches of the Hayde family have been documented to date.  The origins and early members of each of these families have been described on this site. Clicking on the tabs above directs the visitor to the relevant details of the family in the various trees.  However, to respect the privacy of those living, very little information is shown for people born in the 1900s.

The tabs at the top of the web page outlines the various source documents and research material. These pages outline the Irish and German origins of the name and the various descendants traced in England, America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Poland, Hungary and elsewhere.

These pages also cover the meaning of the name and the movement of branches of the family around the world.  It also includes references to the main surname variants – Hade, Haide and Heade.

A key part of recent research involves using DNA techniques to connect the branches of the family and also to determine our origins. This is a key part of future research. The DNA tab outlines this work.

Another forthcoming project is to run a worldwide family reunion. The intention is to base this in Dublin but with a focus on the areas we all came from.  This will probably need to be held in the summer and the plan is to do something in 2019 or 2020.  All yet to be determined. I am trying to find a date that we could commemorate as part of this reunion but haven’t found anything suitable yet.  Relevant dates I have found end in 5, 6, 7 or 8. Anyone happy to assist with logistics, support, whatever in their home countries or in Ireland please let me know.

The site shows the various family trees in a drop down menu on the left hand side above below the Hayde Family History heading.

The tabs immediately above reflect the various family groupings. These web pages provide more detail on families in the areas described.  They are also intended to be able to receive comments (‘blogs’) from family members who are able/keen to contribute old photos or stories to their family page.  The facility to post blogs is available at the bottom of each of these pages.

I hope you enjoy reading these web pages as much as I have enjoyed doing the research.
