At the Heinsohn Family Reunion, we are all descendants of Hinrich "Diedrich" Heinsohn and Anna Marie Rodefeld who lived at Jaderberg near Varel in Oldenburg, now Germany. We usually distinguish between six branches of the family, a branch for each of the six Heinsohn brothers who immigrated between the years 1845 and 1850.
