The Van Norman Family
Joseph Van Norman may be the son of Samuel Van Naaman and Sarah Delamontanie, though this theory has yet to be proven. Sons Joseph and Benjamin (along with friend Hiram Capron) founded the town of Normandale, Ontario about 1820. They developed the site as an iron forge. Hiram left not long afterwards to found his own town (Paris, Ontario), and Benjamin left by the 1830's.

Wish to contact me about this family?

Please note that I cannot help anyone in their quest to trace their family tree. There are several very good websites dedicated to helping you learn how to climb your tree. They are far more informative and accessible than I am! Please take advantage of those services. Thanks

Please note: I get all messages sent to the Van Norman Family Association

As useful as it would be, I'm unable to read minds. Therefore I do need your help if you write to me for assistance or to inquire about a possible family connection.

Firstly I need a name - WHO are you looking for? (including the name of their spouse is also helpful).

Secondly a date - WHEN were they born, did they migrate, die, etc?

Lastly a place - WHERE were they born/married, etc.

Why are these three things needed? Name should be obvious. A date helps narrow it down - I may have a name that matches (sometimes a dozen or more) but that's not helpful to either of us especially if none of them turn out to match your information (all it does is waste time). A place narrows it down even further. I may not have the name you're seeking, but perhaps a branch of my tree was in the area at the same time as yours.

A full family history isn't required, just enough information to give me a place to start checking my data for a match. Thanks!
