Delano Minnesota Welcomes the Delano Kindred 

The DELANO KINDRED was founded in 1991 for the purpose of exploring the ancestry and genealogy of their common ancestor, Philippe de Lanoy. In 1621, Philippe arrived in Plimoth (now Plymouth, Massachusetts) on the ship Fortune and some time later changed his name to Philip Delano. He is the progenitor of the Delano family in America. Members of the Delano Kindred will be staying in Delano, MN September 16-18 2022. 

Please welcome the kindred to our community!

President, Tom Delano invites the Delano, MN community to join the activities planned for the Kindred. Please register for any or all by September 2nd, 2022
