I'm interested in joining. I'm John Albert Van Order (WikiTree: Van_Order-31). For years I've been researching four Van Order households that first appear in the 1810 federal census, believing I'm descended from one of them. If my research is correct, they are descended from Jan Andriesse Van Orden & wife Rachel Van Schyven and moved from Saddle River, NJ prior to 1810. Recently I've taken the FamilyTree big Y DNA test and find I'm a BROUWER descended from Adan Brouwer through his son Nickolas (1672-1749). I'm interested in finding out how this happened and glad to share what I have on the Van orders in the Finger Lakes.
