RANC - RANCK - RONK The Family Updated August 12, 2002
About Our Family Research
The first recorded known family member is Jean Ranc b: 1641. His only known sibling is Hans Valentine Ranck, b: Paris, France, d: 1710, Neckaran, Mannhein. Buried: Palatine. First known Ranck to arrive in American was Mich'l Ranck onboard the ship MORTONHOUSE out of Rotterdam. 23rd of August 1728. The next year, on the same ship; Johann Michael Ranck and Johan Philip Ranck; arrived on the 19th of August 1729. From there this family has spread its roots far and wide. Many Ranck/Ronk's are in the United States and are not linked in these Home Pages. Can you provide another branch.
The Primary "KUDOS" for this Home Page belongs to my cousin Donald "Don" Eugene RONK, of Vientiane, Laos, SE Asia. Don passed away August 25, 2001. Don provided me with the basic of the Ranc/Ranck/Ronk family data.
