The Van Norman Family Association

Many Van Norman (and variant) researchers are working together on several projects with the goal to connect as many VN families as possible. Below are the results of some of this research. Help is always appreciated!

Families of “First Known” VN Ancestors
A “first known” ancestor is a VN for whom we have not yet found parents. If you recognize any of these VNs and know who their parents are please get in touch!

Calling all male VNs! If you’re male with the surname of Van Norman or one of the variants, or if you know a male VN, please join in our DNA project. By using DNA we can possibly show that two seemingly unrelated VN families were in fact connected. This is especially helpful for VN lines that are ‘stuck’.

VNFA Database
Our family tree file, aka the VNFA database is where all the information collected is put. An outdated VN-only version is available but to ‘search’ the up-to-date version you must send in an e-mail request.

Early Census Returns 1790-1840
A project is underway to locate and identify all VN in the census 1790-1840. A downloadable excel file is available for those who want to participate.
