Family Finder
First Name:

The Vinette & Related surnames of New York State

Updated November 24, 2000

About Our Family Research

This Family history is a work in progress. Most of my immediate family lives in Rochester, New York, but I have traced related surnames to Canada, Germany, Belgium, Holland, and several other cities in the United States. Some of my ancestor surnames are VanBranteghem, Deboever, Hatterscheid, Terhaar, Vilinsky, Fishman, Kahn, & Poirier. I have traced the VanBranteghem name back to the 1600's with help from records of distant living relatives. I also have a fairly complete Hatterscheid history, but it is written in German & needs to be interpreted. My main goal of tracing the Vinette name has been a difficult job due to the lack of living relatives to assist me. I have only confirmed about 4 generations back to Troy, New York. I can assume from these findings, I am distantly related to a group of Vinettes in the Pittsfield, Mass. area, but I have been unable to confirm this information at this time. I am interested in forming relationships with other researchers in order to share information and helpful hints in finding that information.

Within this website home page, I have included a sample of our family tree. I have much more information to share, and I have much more information to discover. Please contact me with any comments, questions, or leads.
