AKDHA Mission Statement:
"The primary purpose of the Association is to research, educate and preserve the heritage of the German Pioneer Andreas Killian and affiliated families who settled in the early 1700’s around the Catawba River in what is now Catawba County, North Carolina; and to assist other inquirers nationally or internationally on Killian research which may or may not be related to Andreas Killian of North Carolina."
"We have been blessed to have had ancestors with the foresight and ability to establish The Andreas Killian association and I believe it is our duty and privilege to carry on out of respect for them and for the benefit of future generations." - Charles D. Killian
