    3. Hello Not sure on much of this info. Found most of it online myself. It is hard to track native ancesters. I have other native ancesters but can't track them either. Good luck , let me know what you find out. On Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 12:16 PM, <swingirl78@aol.com> wrote: > > Hello! i"m hoping you can help me out.

    3. I am descended from the Van Slykes, but I only really know the information available on ancestry.com and http://www.olivetreegenealogy.com/index.shtmlI grew up knowing that I had a native heritage, and I do believe what I have read regarding the Van Slyke/native connection, but I also discovered that closer to me in my lineage there was at least one more infusion of native blood. Good luck with your investigation, swinggirl78. If you find out anything new, I'd be interested in hearing.

    1. Re: [VANSLYKE] was Baertie truly a native american
    2. Hi Julie, I have many Van Slyke families on my website at www.angelfire.com/ga4/myhayes_family/ . I have Baertie as my 8th great grandmother. I have no idea if she is Native American. I have her birth as 1636 in Kinderhook, Columbia County, NY. I have also seen her birth in Albany, NY and the Netherlands. My records are all cross referenced to Olive Schulze's Van Slyke books. I do not think that Ots Toch Hartell is her mother. I have four children for her and Cornelis Antonissen Van Slyke. None of them is Ots Toch. Richard

    3. Speaking of the family and all, I am still at a dead end. I have John Vans Slyke born 9 Dec 1843 in Schenectady Co. I am pretty sure now his parents were Harmanus J? Van Slyke and Mary Ann OSTRANDER.. But then I can not go back any further. There were so many Harmanus Van Slykes around in the early 1800s. this one seems to be born ca 1811 and was married on 16 Nov 1840 in Glenville NY Lee

    3. My wife and I are going on a barge cruise and cycling tour of Holland in late June. As it happens the first stop after Amsterdam is Breuckelen. Does anyone on the list have any recommendations of places to visit that might have some connection to Cornelis Antonissen or his relatives? I have been absent from this list for a few years since I changed my email address and forgot to re-subscribe. So hello again. Steven Clark Van Slyke, gggs of David O.

    2. Hi Janet, My computer is down right now so I am on my husband's as a guest. I cannot get to my program. Try looking under The Olive Tree Genealogy.com scroll done past ancestry search (or you will end up on ancestry .com) and click on VanSlyke also Van Valkenburg or her genealogy. She goes into this family also, They married into the VanSk. Also click on Mohawk. Ots-Toch married Cornelis Van Slyke, my line.you probably can come forward off his genealogy and be related to him.I do have lydia in my program. As soon as I get my viris fixed I will get back with you. Good hunting! Suzy Murphy In a message dated 5/30/2010 9:56:54 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time, JanetLynne121@aol.com writes: Please help!

    1. Re: [VANSLYKE] Revised Edition Van Slyke Book Available
    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello Steve There was no one way to "spell" the surname in the 1600s. Spelling was not standardized. For example in the Netherlands it would be recorded with the "ij" combination instead of the "y" that we see in N. America So you will find Cornelius recorded in various records in a variety of ways. His descendants used van Slyke, van Slyck and van Slyk. There may be other variants too. I've given you a few of them. Also don't forget that patronymics were the norm and so Cornelis is recorded under various other names - his patronymic, his nickname given him by the Mohawks etc Lorine On 21 May 2010 at 12:49, Steve VanSlyck wrote: > So... you're not sure? > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Olive Tree Genealogy" <otg@csolve.net> > To: "Steve VanSlyck" <s.vanslyck@spamcop.net> > Cc: VANSLYKE-L@rootsweb.com > Date: Fri, 21 May 2010 11:22:21 -0400 > Subject: Re: [VANSLYKE] Revised Edition Van Slyke Book > Available > > > Spelling didn't count back then.

    1. [VANSLYKE] Revised Edition Van Slyke Book Available
    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello everyone I'm very excited to announce that I have completed another genealogy-history book: The Van Slyke Family in America: A Genealogy of Cornelise Antonissen Van Slyke, 1604-1676 and his Mohawk Wife Ots- Toch , including the story of Jacques Hertel, 1603-1651, Father of Ots-Toch and Interpreter to Samuel de Champlain REVISED EDITION Ever since the publication of my first Van Slyke Family in America book in 1996, I have been continuing my research on this family. A few years ago I found a court record in New Netherland where Cornelis Van Slyke wrote about the death of a man in Breuckelen Netherlands. Cornelis referred to the deceased man as his brother and asked if he was in the will. This exciting discovery spurred me to hire a Dutch researcher to search the Breuckelen and Nijenrode archives for more details. His findings are presented in this Revised Edition. The Van Slyke Family in America, Revised Edition, discusses Cornelise Antonissen Van Slyke born in Brueckelen, Netherlands in 1604 and his Mohawk-French wife Ots-Toch born ca 1620 at Canajoharie, New York. Cornelis came to the New World in May of 1634, settling at Beverwyck and then Schenectady, New York. Cornelis was known by several names, making research on him somewhat complicated, but not impossible. Cornelis Van Slyke's story is of a Dutchman who came to the New World as a carpenter at the age of 30, who became an interpreter for the Mohawk nation, was adopted into the tribe, and who met and married a French-Mohawk woman (Ots- Toch)who never left her native village. Their children, all raised at Canajoharie, one of the Mohawk castles or villages, became well-known and respected in the Dutch community. All except one left the village and married Dutch settlers. In the Revised Edition, new findings on the Van Slyke family in Breuckelen are revealed. New facts are added to the descendant genealogies and a few errors from the first book are corrected. More sources have been added and there is more detail about individuals included. There are 1,342 footnoted sources for the facts contained in this 287 page book. http://www.olivetreegenealogy.com/store/order-books.shtml will take those interested directly to an order form Lorine -- Lorine McGinnis Schulze * Follow me on Twitter http://twitter.com/LorineMS * Olive Tree Genealogy http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ * Naturalization Records http://naturalizationrecords.com/ olivetreegenealogy@rogers.com or olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com

They were married on 08 Jan 1844 in Java and resided there for about six years. Three of their 7 children (Louisa, Newton, and Edwin) were born in Java. The family moved to Riley, McHenry, Illinois in 1851 and built the first house on what is now known as the Alfred Nelson place. Lemuel's parents, Palmer and Judah (Barber) Whitney also lived with the family. Four more children were born to Lemuel and Lydia (Emma, Ida, Nelson and Allen) in Riley, Illinois. In 1882 Lemuel and Lydia moved to a farm in Belleville, Kansas. They are buried at Belleville Cemetery in Belleville, Kansas. Lydia Van Slyke Whitney is my 2nd great grandmother. I would love to find out more about her ancestors. Thank you. Janet **************Know Your Numbers: Get tips and tools to help you improve your credit score.

    1. [VANSLYKE] Ask Olive Tree!
    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hello fellow researchers - Some of you probably know that I read and answer a lot of questions on various genealogy mailing lists. I've been doing this for years but I decided that starting in 2009 I would use a slightly different method. Don't get me wrong, I am still going to respond to mailing list queries whenever possible. But I thought there was a better way to help other researchers, so I started a Blog called Ask Olive Tree. It's at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ Ask Olive Tree is a central place where I can post your questions and my answers, and where anyone dropping by can read them - and join in! Yes, anyone can leave a comment on any of the queries and answers on Ask Olive Tree. Do you need help finding an ancestor? Do you have a genealogy question you would like to ask me? Do you want to know where to find specific genealogy records? You can ask any kind of question from "How do I find my grandpa Harry on a ships' passenger list from Ireland to New York in the 1800s?" to "What's the Dutch name for Anna?" to "What does the British Bonus System mean?" (all of these are actual questions asked and answered) If you want help finding an elusive ancestor, please be sure that you provide me with a concise (brief) summary of your ancestor with names, dates and locations. Be sure to give me full location names, please don't tell me your ancestor lived in "Salmon Creek" and expect me to know where that is. I need to know the full location - "Salmon Creek, Puslinch Township, Wellington Co., Ontario Canada" Tell me where you have looked and what you want to find out. I've been receiving some queries that give me lots of details but never tell me what they want to know! Basically I want to help - either by finding your elusive ancestor, or by directing you to the sources you need to find him/her yourself or by answering a question about resources or name and boundary changes or.... whatever! The email address to use if you want to submit a question is askolivetree@gmail.com So take a peek at my new site Ask Olive Tree at http://askolivetree.blogspot.com/ , read a few of the queries already posted and then flex your typing fingers and send me a question. I can't respond to questions sent anywhere but askolivetree@gmail.com so be careful not to reply to this address when asking.

The only way to have an archived message removed is to put in a formal request to Rootsweb. They do not remove posts lightly, you will have to have solid reasons for wanting something removed. I'm afraid I cannot connect to the RW site today to find the direct URL for you, so just go to http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/ and see what you can find, or write to Helpdesk and ask who you need to contact Lorine -- Lorine McGinnis Schulze * Olive Tree Genealogy (Ships Passenger Lists) http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ * Naturalization Records http://naturalizationrecords.com/ * Images of Ships Lists http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/ships/ otg@csolve.net or olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com

    2. Olive Tree Genealogy
    3. Hi everyone I just wanted to let fellow Van Slyke descendants know that I've started a Van Slyke Genealogy Group on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6263002062 I've started uploading photos (gravestones so far) and plan to upload more as I can. Everyone who joins is welcome to upload their own photos - gravestones, people, documents, whatever you have and wish to share. You can also start discussion topics on the Discussion Board or simply post an idea or comment It's easy to use, and I think it can become a terrific resource for us especially if we all pitch in and post a photo of some kind. Facebook is free to join and easy to use Lorine -- Lorine McGinnis Schulze * Olive Tree Genealogy (Ships Passenger Lists) http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ * Naturalization Records http://naturalizationrecords.com/ * Images of Ships Lists http://www.rootsweb.com/~ote/ships/ otg@csolve.net or olivetreegenealogy@gmail.com
