Re: VOILAND, albert a. 1896 france
I know my ancestor V's came from France; at some point, years ago, there was a split between Catholic and Protestant V's. My Mother did lots of research on my Dad's side of the family, which is boxed up, but accessible to me if needed. I'm surprised there are so many Robert V's!
My Dad: Robert Hamilton V, born in Denver CO in 1927(where my 5 siblings and I grew up).
Granddad: Robert Eugene V, of Sioux City IA, photographer.
His Dad: Harvey V, of Sioux City IA and Estes Park CO, also a photographer.
Our family visited the Clarence V's of Seattle in the 1970's.Aren't we Voilands COOL?Does anyone know if the name means anything?
