Hello, Paul--

Thru DNA testing, I find I'm descended from LAURENS HAFF by way of the BANTA family line. This is on my mother's side.

Oddly, I've been searching for the parents of my GGrandmother on my father's side, whose surname is HUFF/HOFF! I believe she descends from PAULUS DIRCKSE HOF/HOFF, then HUFF...who came to the NY colony close to the same time as LAURENS HAFF.

Do you happen to know if these two men are related????? Also, my theory is that both men were Jewish in background, but were Christian converts (Conversos). I'd like to add that these families may not be aware of a Jewish background. This topic may be of interest to you as well.

I would really, really appreciate hearing from you!!!! Here's my e-mail:
