Dear Mr ( Mrs ) HEHL

My name is CLAUDIO RICARDO HEHL FORJAZ. I'm Brazilian and I live in
Cascavel, a city with about 300.000 people, in Parana State, Brazil.
I'm writing you because it is possible we are relatives, once my mother's
family's name is HEHL just like yours.
It's been a long time since my grandmother told me about my grandfather's
family. She said that my grandfather's father was German and that he came
to Brazil from Kassel to work here building a railway, as his brother, who
used to live in Hamburg, before coming to Brazil.
My last information revelated that Maximilian Emil Hehl was born in Germany

Maximilian was an architect and worked in many offices getting a huge
experience and talent. In 1888, his brother, Rudolph, invited him to join
the Engineering Company which was going to build a railway track from Bahia
to Minas Gerais, both Brazilian`s States. Mr Maximilian Emil Hehl accepted
the job and worked there for two years, lidering the Mucury way.
 After this work, Mr Maximilian Emil than moved to São Paulo City, where he

the Third Order of the Carmo. He also wrote some articles to Poytechnic
Mr Maximilian Emil Hehl died on August 27th 1916, after being ill for a long
period, without concluding his masterpiece, Sâo Paulo Cathedral.

For a  better identification, I`m going to show  Maximilian Emil Hehl`
Family Tree,:

Mr Johannes Hehl was Maximilian Emil Hehl` father. Mr Johannes had an older

Mr Werner Siegfried is my grandfather. He born in São Paulo on March 21th
1907 and he married to Mrs Helena Caiaffa Hehl. They had 5 sons: Wilma Sônia
Hehl Sylos Cintra; Maximilian Emil Hehl; Marly Helena Hehl Forjaz, my

married to José Américo de Moraes Forjaz. She had 3 sons: Claudio Ricardo
Hehl Forjaz, me; Paula Andréa Hehl Forjaz; and Patrícia Helena Hehl Forjaz.
My grandmother Helena told me that the origin of the name is from the XVIII
century, when the Austrian kings threw some nobles out of their country. Two
brothers scape
to German, and in a bar they decided to make this fact their top secret. And
as she told me, HEHL means PRINCIPAL, SPECIAL

Since those days I'm looking for another person who knows about my
family in German, Austria or any other countries.
One day, searching in Internet I found your e-mail and I wondered if you
knew this history or the destiny of another Hehl, so I can write and
rescue my family's history.

On May, 20th 2000,  Hehl`s  Family will gather in Sorocaba , São Paulo
State. I`d like to give  good news about  Hehl Family in Germany or in
another country and the great possibity to change information and talk about
our family, because the Brazilian` Hehls want to know new relatives.

Thanks for your attention and excuse me if you're not related to this
