Some months ago our friend Alf Windhorst infected me with the virtual �Genealogy-Virus�. I started searching the internet for everybody and everthing related to my family name Geelhaar.
I found several private sites, business sites, sports news and academic articles. Some of these special Geelhaar-Sites are:

There are not enough professions to build-up an independent community, but we have a lot of different professions:
lawyer, managing director, specialist for floor covering, artist, educationist and astrologer, financial consultant, writer, scientist, ice hockey coach, soccer coach, teacher, carpet dealer, banker, physicist, veterinarian, secretary,politician and more.
Obviously, most of the Geelhaars are located in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. But there are also some in the United States, Denmark and Austria. The provider of www.verwandt.de (means related to...) has evaluated national telephone directories. The main result is a map where persons with the same name are located in Germany. For the Geelhaar map click the map or fill in any other surename and you will receive the map (only in german...sorry):
In the Netherlands I found a comic-hero named �Geelhaar� and in Theodor Fontanes' criminal novel �Under the Pear Tree� officer �Geelhaar� is investigating.
Well, I also found this crazy site in the Netherlands of the salt meat named Geelhaar. I really hope that this is only a joke. As I have seen today...it's no joke...have a look on this THING for dogs :-o
These are the main results of my internet research. If you know more, please send me an email, use the guestbook or the forum.
