if you go to the website (spelled vanmetRe) you will see TONS of info there. Very nicely laid out with pics of Van Meter's, books that the Van Meter's are mentioned in, WILLS where they free the slaves, ships registrars, census information, etc... (that guy that built that site will also send you (for free) a Van Meter wooden nickel with our coat of arms on it just for emailing him your lineage information (if you are related to the vanmeter's).. Very cool.... just send him your family info with your address and the # of wooden nickels you would like. His link for wooden nickels on that site as well. I LOVE OUR HERITAGE.. I think the most exciting thing that I have seen was the ship's Dos Vox (The Fox) registrar with our actual family signature on it..(when it came over from Holland bringing with it the first of the American Van Meter's).. Good luck to all in searching, i have some more personal info if you would like to call me and leave a voicemail at 415-322-9647.. I welcome the opportunity to talk to anyone regarding our lineage. Sincerely, Dina Van Meter (of San Francisco)
