    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.
