In The Beginning

Biennial Reunions

A North American reunion is held every two years.  The most recent one was held in the village of Baddeck, located on scenic Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, July 10th thru the 13th, 2017.  Hosts for the event were Ed Wintermute and his wife, Linda; sisters, Norma (Wintermute) Marchant and her husband, Bill; and Donna (Wintermute) Ellis and her husband, Ed.

The 2019 reunion will be held in Stillwater, New Jersey, the dates and exact location is not known at this time. Ralph Wintermute from California and Neal Wintermute from Ohio will be making the arrangements.  As they get the details locked in we will post the information right here on the web site. 


In 1996, a two-volume book set entitled “The Windemuth Family Heritage 1996” was published.  It contained the names and information of nearly 12,000 descendants.  Continuing research has increased that number today to more than 80,000.  View this listing by selecting “Surname Search” on the Menu.
