As Naasson, Amminadab's son, was prince at the first numbering of Israel in the second year from the Exodus, Amminadab probably died in Egypt before the Exodus, at the time of Israel's heaviest oppression.

Amminadab in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a-min'-a-dab (`amminadhabh = "my people (or my kinsman) is generous or noble"): Three persons bearing this name are mentioned in the Old Testament. (1) In Ruth 4:19,20 and 1 Ch 2:10 Amminadab is referred to as one of David's ancestors. He was the great-grandson of Perez, a son of Judah (Gen 38:29; 46:12) and the great- grandfather of Boaz, who again was the great-grandfather of David. Aaron's wife, Elisheba, was a daughter of Amminadab (Ex 6:23), while one of the sons, namely, Nahshon, occupied an important position in the Judah-clan (Nu 1:7; 2:3; 7:12; 10:14). (2) In the first Book of Chronicles (1 Ch 6:22) Amminadab is mentioned as a son of Kohath (and therefore a grandson of Levi) and the father of Korah. But in other genealogical passages (Ex 6:18; Nu 3:19; 1 Ch 6:2) the sons of Kohath are Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel, and in two places (Ex 6:21; 1 Ch 6:38) Izhar is mentioned as the father of Korah. (3) According to 1 Ch (15:10,11) Amminadab was the name of a priest who took part in the removal of the ark to Jerusalem. He was the son of Uzziel, and therefore a nephew of Amminadab, son of Kohath (= Izhar). Thomas Lewis

Amminadab in Wikipedia (Hebrew: עמינדב, Aminadav ; "my people are generous") was a minor character in the Book of Genesis. According to the genealogies of Genesis‎ and Jesus' genealogy, he was born of Ram (also known as Aram) during the Israelite exile in Ancient Egypt. He was also the father of Nahshon, chief of the tribe of Judah (Numbers 1:7; 2:3; 7:12, 17; 10:14). His daughter Elisheva was Aaron's wife (Exodus 6:23), making him Aaron's father-in-law. In Bloodline of the Holy Grail, revisionist historian Laurence Gardner proposes Amminadab to be Akhenaten, allegedly the historical basis for Moses. According to Gardner's speculation, when Thutmose IV died, his son Amenhotep III married his sister Sitamun. Once he had secured his pharonic throne, he also married Tiye, the daughter of Chief Minister Yuya, who many[who?] believe to be the biblical patriarch Joseph, son of Jacob. Because the Israelites were gaining too much power in Egypt and because Yuya, a foreigner, had been governor for so long, it was decided that no children of Tiye would be allowed inherit the throne of Egypt, but instead should be killed at birth. Tiye's family lived in the Land of Goshen, so she went to have her baby at Zarw, her summer palace. Her son was put in a reed basket to float downstream to the house of Yuya's half-brother Levi.
