Pennsylvania beginnings

-The Detrixhe family beginnings in the U.S. came with the arrival of Andre' Woot Detrixhe (I've been told the Woot indicates Royalty). It is doubtful Andre' was any relation to us, or if he was, it would go back hundreds of years. I have contacted the Julius Detrixhe, Jr. family in Pennsylvania & they appear to be descendants ot the Woot Detrixhe line. George Detrixhe used to tell of relation in Pennsylvania, but research has shown that Lambert & Tressa never lived there. That means the Detrixhe who died in Vietnam was from a different group who originated in Belgium.
