i wold like to know if anyone would know any information on the wilneff family in nova scotia canada.i belive the name was changed from vilneff to wilneff years ago.the people here in lunenburg mostly came from germany in 1753.i know my grandfather used to pronounce his v,s as w,s like wessel instead of vessel.so i can see how this might of happened. as far back as i can go is james wilneff born in 1842. thank you for any help.
