I was looking through some old postings and came across this message. since this interchange, I have been to The NL. and have found many Vinkenvleugel's in the Province of Gelderland. They are of the same family as was my GG grandfather who came here from dinxperlo in 1847/1848. so this is most definitely a true Dutch name. The family home is still intact having been repaired after extensive damage from the war. It is occupied by two of the Vinkenvleugel's that are descendants of our GGGG grandfather. It was an exciting adventure.

P.S. There are family members throughout the NL. However, there are nine brothers and sisters still living in the immediate area from which Hermanus departed in Nov. 1847 and they have the family history back into the early 1600's.
