Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
Kim, I'm with ya. I have a g-g-grandfather that seems to be impossible to correctly determine where he's from. Different sources have him in Germany, France, or Netherlands. Each seem to be reliable sources.
What's his name and when did he live?
Couldn't find the name Boshaar, but Boshart is a dutch familyname. They were also in New York in the 18th century. In the 19th century the name can be found in The Hague and the province of Noord-Brabant. What was his first name (and maybe second name)?
The earliest I can come up with is: Hans Albrecht Bashore (Boeshaar) 1621 - Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. With all of the references I've seen his name, I'm still suspicious of where and when this name occurs. Supposedly his son's name was Hans Jacob Bashor (Boshaar)w. Anna Geetrudt Meyer (Mejer/Meier) who came to New York around 1710.
Yes, it's German.
