Van Voorhees Coat-of-Arms

Organized in 1932


The purpose of the Van Voorhees Association is to provide genealogical research for members of the association which is comprised of descendants of the Van Voorhees Family.

Membership is open to any descendant of the Van Voorhees Family whose patriarch was Steven Coerte.


The Van Voorhees Association is what you make of it.

We have decided to try Facebook(TM) as our primary form of electronic communication instead of an e-news email. Help us improve communication by visiting our Facebook page. Use the Discussion Board to post your genealogical queries and share family news with your Van Voorhees cousins. Family members can share tips, news, and ask questions. This is not intended to replace the Nieuwsbriefs in any way. That paper newsletter will continue to come to your mailbox. Please submit articles for the Nieuwsbriefs to our editor as you have always done.
