In The Beginning

Biennial Reunions

A North American reunion is held every two years.  The most recent one was hosted by Ralph and Gretchen Wintermute and was held in Santa Clarita, California, in July of 2015.  The next reunion will be held in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in July of 2017. Hosts for the event are Ed Wintermute and his wife, Linda; sisters, Norma (Wintermute) Marchant and her husband, Bill; and Donna (Wintermute) Ellis and her husband, Ed. The details are being ironed out and as things get finalized we will keep you informed. If you are planning to attend the reunion and you don't have a passport, it would be a good idea to start thinking about getting one.


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.
