Hello Robin:
I assume you have looked through the Odessa 3 Search in all Data Categories.
With the marriage having taken place in Kiev, he may have come from
Volhynia. (Polish Volhynia) There is a suggestion that the name could vary
between Haak - Hack-Hauk-Heck. There are also a lot of Haak's in the Emmons
County, N.D. Cemeteries. Have you tried to contact any Haak's that are
living in that area. Citizen Applications of your grandfather.
Another area of search would be the US death index. I"m just checking if you
have done any research of other Haak's in the US. It is an odd name which is
good for a search, similar in oddness like my own last name.
I wish you luck and good hunting.
Nelson Itterman

Since we have been talking about Polish records lately, I wonder if any of
you have looked at records of Germans born in Warsaw, probably evang
(Lutheran). I just want to know, in a general way, if you think I have any
chance of finding him just by paging through parish records. Are there civil
records available? My grandfather, when he came to the USA after marrying
another German near Kiev, wrote "Warsaw" as his place of birth on passport
application, etc. Perhaps he is not from there, at all, but just thought
that might be the only place Americans would recognize! I would be happy to
order some FHL microfilms if I knew what parish might be worth a try. My
particular details: Karl HAAK, born 1863. Only other info I have is that he
had a brother Gottlieb, born c. 1867 Thanks for any pointers. I have written
about him before, but I still have no new info, and don't know what to try
