Hi Pinaire cousins. My father Kenneth G.Pinaire was raised in Ramsey, Indiana and when I was a young man I did some basic research on the family including looking a census records in New Albany, Indiana and visiting the cemetary at Frenchtown, Indiana.
I have spoken with a gentleman in northern Michigan who told me his father did research during WWI indicating the family moved from Portugal to France in about 1590. He stated the family name in Portugal was Pinaro. Please e-mail me with any information you have. Thanks, Blaine Joseph Pinaire
