Minier Family Genealogy
Welcome to the Minier Family
Welcome to the Minier Family Website. Our mission is to share, exchange, and provide information to anyone searching for their Minier roots. This includes the many spellings of the name, including Minnir, Minier, Minnier, Minegar, Minear, Minniear, Manier, Menear, Mynhier…just to name a few.
To give a little background on whom “We” are… Simply put, we are Minier (all spellings, thank you very much) family researchers. In 1998, when internet genealogy was in its infancy, several of us connected and began exchanging information. The Minier and Minear surname mailing lists were born. Individuals who have done years and years of research have willingly shared all to help others find their Minier roots. I was one of the lucky recipients of some of that information back in 1998. Finding out who you are and where you came from is truly a gift. Being able to compile that information and share it with others is one way of giving that gift. We share that gift and ask only for it to be used respectfully, with the intent in which it is given.
