Surname Update : Haas, Jannis

Jannis Haas adopted daughter of Catherine Geddes or Feddes
On the 1911 Canada Census page 8, Province of Ontario, District 74 South Grey, Egremont Township line 5 Geddes, (Gedder or Feddes, Fedder) Catherine Female, Head,  b. January 1864, 67 yrs old born O (which I take as Ontario) is Head and on line 8 Haas Jannis Female, Adopted Daughter, b. February 1910 1 yr old, born O.

I am trying to find more information about Jannis Haas. Who here parents were, where they were from, if they died and that's why she was adopted. This Catherine also has 2 other adopted daughters listed on the census.

Jannis Haas (Who does she belong to?)  I found her on the following Census:

1911 Fifth Census of Canada in the Province of Ontario, District No. 74 South Grey, S. District No. 2 Enumeration District No. 3, in Egremont Township Page 8

Down a few lines on the same census there are some more Haas' and another Ellis

Is it possible that Jannis could be the daughter of William since he has 2 young daughters or of Adline who is single?

  1. Hi Sharon being looking into this for you and I can't find a Jannis Haas birth record in the online databases. It may require more local work, the problem there being that her place of birth is only given as Ontario. Some of the Haas family on the same census sheet (Edwin and Rachel's family) have birth records available on Ancestry which is good but nothing for Jannis, also couldn't find any marriage records for her in the usual places I look for Canada so not sure where else to go with her. Sorry I can't be more help Ben (
