Surnames: Hainaut
My uncle was Avent Hainaut. He immigrated with his family about 1914 to the US. I think they came from Lens, France.
His father was Voltaire and his mother Marie.

I have paged through 100 pages of Hainaut on World Connect and they seem to be mostly duplicates from 0900-1200. Can anyone connect with Hainauts from a later date?

If you search Hainaut on ancestry.com you should find some family trees. My grandfather was Lorrain Hainaut...I am currently working on my family tree.

Surnames: Sollberger, Hainaut, Descutner, Delmotte, Delbecq, Donnez
The Surname of Hainaut is quite common in Belgium and northern France. My grandfather (Jules Joseph) and my great grandfather (Louis Joseph) immigrated to the United States to The United States along with my Great Great Grandfather Pierre Joseph Descutner in 1885. They lived in Washington County, Pennsylvania in McDonald, PA. Later some of the Hainauts and Descutners moved to Ohio. I visited relatives in McDonald many times when I was growing up. I have my family traced back to both Belgium and France. My earliest was Louis Joseph Hainaut born 15 Nov 1768 in Vieux-Conde' of Nord, Nord Pas de Calais. My great great grandfather and my grandmother came from Charlerois, Belgium. My Aunt and my brother have visited the old home of the Hainauts in Belgium. Once I found Jules Joseph, I was able to trace back to Jacques Hainaut and his wife Francoise Donnez , both born about 1675.

There is a site online that has obituaries from McDonald PA, as I recall there was a terrible mine cave in and several Descutners and a few Hainauts were killed. I got a lot of my information from family and from obituaries. The two families are very interesting in Europe. The Original Louis was from just over the French border in France and the Hainauts are from Charleroi to a mining area in France.

All of the Hainauts except Edward had kids and the families tended to be rather large.What makes it difficult is they keep using the same names over and over again but I separated most of it out. I would like to know where Louis (senior) was born and where he was married. The Descutners and the Hainauts came over on the same boat. I have the exact date somewhere. Jules carried a good luck piece in his little ten year old pocket on the voyage over and I have that.
