Hello,

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.

Hey John,

Welcome to G2G and WikiTree. The Last Names you are researching look very Dutch to me. You might up with a link to some New Netherlands settlers. A tip to keep all those Brouwers/van Orders apart is to add locations, even just countries to the profiles

Is there a specific project you want to join within WikiTree? You can always sign the Honor Code and upgrade that way. That will give you the possibility to add an unlimited number of sourced profiles.
