have descended from these progenitors.
Haskell Family genealogy research by Haskells in numerous records
over many years has resulted the most comprehensive Family
History Database for Haskells of mostly English Origin. Some
Europeans and Jews standardized their names following emigration.
Some African Americans assumed the surname due to plantation

Many Haskell village churches and record offices in Dorset,
Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, England were visited in 2005,
2007 and 2008. Genealogy data was gathered throughout the
United Kingdom during these visits.

adjustments to material you may find elsewhere. Accuracy is
strived for but not always possible due to source errors, gaps in
records or differences in interpretation of old handwriting styles.
