Van Zandt Society Reunion
The Van Zandt Society is holding its annual reunion in Philadelphia from October 16-19, 2008. With approximately 300 members across the U.S., Canada, and Europe, the Society tries to help members associated with the three known lines of the family identify and document their roots and make contact with living cousins. All spellings of the name are covered including Van Zandt, Van Zant, Van Sant, Vinzant, Vinsant, Vansandt, Vansant, etc. Reunions are held in major cities across the U.S. or in fabulous destinations such as the Grand Canyon each year. Philadelphia will mark the 40th annual meeting for the Van Zandt Society.
This year’s reunion will include a daylong motor coach trip to Bucks County, PA where several members of the Gerret Stoffelse Vansand/Vansant branch settled in 1698 after leaving New Utrecht (today’s Brooklyn, NY).
