finding your roots

On big family

William VanNatta May 14, 2012

So since my last posting about finding my fathers other family. Last weekend i went to a open house for a old farmstead here in NJ called Hoff Vannatta farm. And is on the National Historic land marks listing. It has the distinction of being the oldest farmstead In NJ. At any rate I’m on the hunt for more of my family’s history. What better place to come to. As you read below the attached link you read about the chance meeting with a 5x removed cousin at the open house.
