Tina, All the Slauenwhites are related. The name comes from Schlagenweit (not sure of the spelling). The ancestor came over from Germany in 1758, probably with a land grant, maybe with something to do with religious freedom. There are many details available on the web. He settled in Nova Scotia and boy, did he spread out. My grandmother (father's mother) was Annie Agnes Slaunwhite (another spelling). Go to the Nova Scotia Gen Web project and start looking. Good luck, cousin!
