About This Site
I have always liked my last name, Van Metre, its a unique name, a name people remember, and I like the way it looks. So its only natural, at least to me, that I thought it would be neat, chic, cool, whatever, to have an E-mail address using Scott in front of "VanMetre.com". So I checked to see if the domain name "VanMetre.com" was registered, it wasn't, so I went ahead and did so, not knowing exactly what I was going to do with it. Also I didn't want a Canadian E-mail service company that was registering every surname they could think of or find in the phone book get it.
It wasn't long before I started getting E-mails asking if I was related to so and so or if I was in this line or that, all of which I didn't have a clue except for some research my sister Laurie did some years ago. I decided to create a Web site where I'd post any information I found on the Van Metre Family. Starting with my line and branching out from there. I am not a Genealogist or Historian. I guess I'm a collector more than anything, in this case I'm collecting information and learning to build a WEB site. This site is not meant to be a primary source even though that is almost exclusively were I have gotten the data on the site. I am only trying to show if some bit of information is out there. Its up to you the researcher to verify anything you find here. Please don't ask me to do so, as in many cases my sources are no longer at my disposal.
I have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, if anyone has information that could aid me in my efforts or you find errors in the information on my site, please E-mail me.
