  1. I am LDS and I am related to the Haneberg family in Hawaii. My mother was Gladys Haneberg. I am attempting tie my Hawaiian family to mine. See Look for my entry at that website. All of my children attended BYU in Provo.. We have a Vietnamese-Hawaiian foster child in Maui, Tuyet Koomoa. Thank you.

    • Gladys,
      I’m a relative of the Haneberg’s also. My mother was Mae Jean Haneberg. Born to Henry and Carrie Haneberg. I live in California. Would love to hear any more about your side and knowledge. I’ll share mine. I’m also LDS. Calley was married to my Uncle Lawrence.

      • Hello, Wanda. I will be happy to send the line of descent from the Haneberg family which includes the California, Hawaiian and Kansas lines. I am happy to learn that I have more relatives here in California. Please give me your address and telephone number on my email address: I am having the Haneberg line updated at this time but I hope to have the updated version ready in a week or so. Incidentally, I just walked in the door returning from a vacation to Kona. Thank you for your writing.

      • My grandfather was Lawrence Haneberg. My father is Chuck Haneberg. My name is Kristin “Krisi” Haneberg-Bleasdale. Calley (my tutu) is still alive and has a sharp memory with all of her geneology. I would love to connect with you. I remember Mae Jean. Please contact me if you have a chance. We are all still in Hawaii.

  2. Hi Wanda, I have not heard from you yet but I believe that you have three sisters, Patricia, Sheryl and Melinda. When you get back to me I will send you the genealogy I have on the Hawaiian Haneberg family. Please send me your email and snail mail addresses that I have given you above.

  3. I am working on the lines of descent for the Haneberg family. Send me your “snail mail” address and I will send you a copy of what I have. I need to secure more info on the descendants of Henry Alexander Haneberg. He was Lawrence’s father. I have been in touch with Harriett Calley and I have talked to her on the telephone. I have also been in communication with Ryan Haneberg’s wife, Natalie. I have much that I can share with you. I have info on the German, Kansas, California and Hawaiian lines. David Nearon

    • My Grandmother is Harriet Calley. What do you need and I can help you. I see my Grandmother very frequently. My email is I look forward to hearing from you David. I am very interested in what you have to share.
