Welcome to, a family website for The Hout Family Archives. 

Matthew have been researching the Hout family line as well as other branches since 1994.  This is a life long project, one that I love doing.  For my fellow genealogist out there, you know how I feel.   Shortly after I started researching I started a family newsletter called "Hout Happenings", which I have published here and there over the years.  I will be posting those on this site as well.  There is a new issue of Hout Happenings coming out within the next couple weeks for the fall season.  I'm going strictly digital with Hout Happenings since there are over 150 people I would have to mail them out to, and that gets expensive.

My research is on this site.  Please click on "Family History" to review.  I will be working on an name index for the site, so you can browse for a name, click it and it will go right to his/her page. I did my best not to post birth dates of those under 70 years old.  If you find your birth dates listed and would like it to be removed from the site, please email. me.  On the old website I had documents (WWI / WWII records, birth, marriage and death records, etc...) on the site. I'm currently in the process of converting those in to .pdf files so it will be easier to read them.  As always if you see data that needs to be corrected please contact me ASAP.

I'm sorry there isn't much more on this site other than my research, I had to get the site up quickly since I am meeting new cousins at the rate of 2 - 3 a week.

I will be posting pictures on the family pages I have put together. Please email me pictures for the site and other information you may have.
