Marinus Van Aken married Pieternelle De Pre 11 Apr 1683 Cadzand, Holland and sailed to America about 1684. Marinus and Pieternelle settled in the Kingston, NY area and raised eight children. Today descendants of Marinus and Pieternelle are living in all areas of the United States. We are also aware of at least three other Van Aken families that immigrated to the United States and have researched these families as well.


In 1984 I began publishing a small quarterly newsletter to share family history and information. Articles have included: "In Search of Van Aken Origins in Europe", "The Old Mine Road", "Notes on Our European Cousins", "Bible Records", "Cemetery Records", "Stories of the Van Aken/Van Auken Pioneers", "Queries", "Lost Cousins", "Skeletons in the Closet" and many more. If you are interested in subscribing to the newsletter or would like to purchase back issues of the newsletter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
