Genealogy of the Hash House Harriers

The Hash House Harriers are a unique breed of people about whom much history has been written. To clearly identify our pedigree it is important that our Genealogy reflects the origins of each Chapter, traced all the way back to the original 'mother' in Kuala Lumpur, which was established in late 1938.

HISTORY of HASH GENEALOGY » provides details of the evolution of HHH Genealogy project itself.

Hash Genealogy is based on 'Matriarchal Lineage' where the mother's line is dominant. The MOTHER of each Chapter is the Chapter which the FATHER (Founder) was associated with (or rather, 'ran with') prior to its creation. Fellow hashers who assisted the Father in the Hash Chapter's creation are considered to be MIDWIVES (Co-founders).
