401 Kaye Births by Location

Revision Date:January 2002

The oldest ancestor of the Kayes in my family tree is Joannis Kaye who married in Hamme (present day Hamme-Mille) in 1722. However, I have not been able to determine where he was born.

I have included all of the Kayes that I have found in the following table. In some of the Kayes born in Belgium, I have not been able to trace them to Joannis Kaye. I am concentrating my research on these individuals in the hope of finding where Joannis Kaye was orginally from.

The births in USA and Canada are descendants of Joannis Kaye which emigrated from Belgium.

Geographic Distribution of Names in Belgium

Maps for each of the following names (number of individuals) are stored using the GIF format and range from 5 to 10 KB. These maps were created using Geonome's Internet Site (The site does not exist anymore.) and are shown here with their permission. Data for these maps was extracted from the phone directory published on the 1996 edition of the Infobel CD-ROM.

Note: Using Geonome 93 Kayes were identified as shown in the geographic distribution. However, when searching for the name K-A-Y-E on Infobel's website, a total of 130 names were found including all names which begin with K-A-Y-E. The actual number of Kayes was 86.
