Hello Cousins, Welcome to the Hinchman Heritage Society. The purpose of this website is to inform family members about current events, as well as to share genealogical and historical information. All Hinchmans are encouraged to join the society and attend the summer conference each year.
– Current President, Joe Hinchman
Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I’ve learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of the Hinchman Heritage Society and this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.
The Hinchman Heritage Society was formally organized in Huntington, West Virginia the weekend of April 23, 1994. This organizational meeting was attended by thirty family members from Kansas; Kentucky; North Carolina; New Jersey; Ohio; Texas; Virginia; and West Virginia. The purpose of the society includes collecting, collating, preserving and disseminating knowledge and information of genealogical historical and biographical nature; establishing and maintaining a central archive; and issuing publications.
– The founder and first president was Robert Hinchman, Jr. of Dallas, TX.
