Hi Jasmin, I hope this is helpful :On WikiTree pages there is a search feature top-center.  If you type a last name in the box provided and click, it brings you to a page for that surname with a list of profiles and many options.  Among the green links provided near the lop of the page, there is a link that says "genealogists". Clicking this will show you all WikiTree members who currently follow g2g posts tagged with that surname.  It's a good bet they are researching the same.  Others may be researching those names too but elected not to follow the tag.

For example, I typed the surname "Vincent" into the search box which got me to the surname page for Vincent, then I clicked the link "genealogists" and found 50 members following that tag:

https://www.wikitree.com/genealogists/VINCENT

You can do to same for any name.

The above address / link can be altered if that is easier...simply replace the last portion of the link with the surname of your choice.  For spaces use an underscore _.

Have a nice day :)

Jasmin,

Because you have just recently volunteered at WikiTree, you are not connected to any ancestors yet. Thus I cannot see your Vincent family lineage.

In addition to the Surname Tags, there are also several One Name Study pages on WikiTree, including a VINCENT One Name Study, created by Ron Vincent:

Category: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Vincent_Name_Study

Study Page: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Vincent_Name_Study

Ron also manages the Vincent y-DNA project pages. Feel free to contact me directly if I can help you in any way.

You don't say where your various families lived, so this comment may or may not be relevant.

Kuntz is one of the names I've seen among "Palatine" (German) migrants who arrived in American in the early 1700s. I think there have been several immigrant families by this name who arrived in America at different times, from German-speaking parts of Europe. I've seen the name spelled other ways, including Kuhns, Coons, Counce, Coontz, Koonce, and other variations.

For my line, Kuntz came from the part of France that is now Germany, in the 1800s, once here the name took three different directions (via his children, and I suspect due to Census takers of the time period), but the three variations in my line are Kuntz, Coonce, and Counce.

I've worked on sourcing/cleaning up/connecting some Vincents out of Kentucky.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vincent-2476
