This site is mainly devoted to the Aten family. My better half's line. I have been researching this for some time. What is here onthis site is the Aten and related families genealogy."Not my McKinney side".From Adriaen Hendrickse Aten/1630/Netherlands, To present day. There iswonderful history here for a Family that used the ATEN (dutch spelling AUTEN)and other various spelling of the name. At this time there are 14 generations in this country that we have documented and growing daily. I am willing to help all who ask any way I can with my information on the ATEN family. I am just starting my research on my McKinney side.Any help would be greatly appreciated there.This is what I know of them.My father>Lee Finis Cameron McKinney b.Jan 3,1898>Ark.d.1984>Pa.
