Re: Guillaumes - anybody?
Hi, Jed,-My Guillaumes came from Vance, Belgium, about18 miles from Chiny. I would say there was a good chance the two families are related.
Other names from this area in my family are: Pete, Glaude, Sondack, Fostie, Henin, Mathieu, Gregoire, Grein, Wagner Knoeper, Mussy, Limpach, Mattin
Many families from the New Riegel, Ohio area emigrated from Luxembourg providence of Belgium or from Luxembourg.
The Guillaumes that I have are -Mary Margaret (1827-1909); Jean Nicholas (1797-1864); Jean Francois (1767- ); Nicolay (1737-1769); and Petri.
I was in this area of Belgium 3 years ago, and have some pictures and stuff.
Good to meet a maybe 99th cousin-Denny Long
