My Sweet Sixteen

+10 votes
Below are my "sweet sixteen."  That is my first 16 Ancestral surnames in ahnentafel order.  I'm adding the Number of profiles with that surname on Wikitree.  They vary from 1 to 33207.  Some of them would be much more common if I added in other common versions of the spelling but I'm using the spelling my line uses or the one the woman who married in my tree used.Feel free to emulate, discuss or even see if you can make your line connect to mine.

Dardinger 53, Miller 33207, Thompson 24867, Anthony 1824, Schimmel 85, Krause 855, Conrad 1610, Knoderer 34, Schleup 1, Hessler 47, Marks 1701. Schroener 2, Evans 14087, Parker 17424, Seeberger 10, McCrary 293

From the low numbers for the surnames it looks like the Netherlands could use some more wikitreers. :-)

I do have an ancestral line from the Netherlands, Mary Vandevender married my 5ggrandfather, David Evans, Sr. It's spelled various ways in partiicular with a t instead of a d at the end.  Unfortunately I've never been able to link Mary to parents.  However a ggrandaughter of her's, Susannah Evans married a Nimrod Vandeventer and I have lots of that family in my offline tree.  Actually, looking at the tree, Nimrod's father Philip married Elizabeth Evans, a granddaughter of David Evans Sr. through a different child so those two lines are quite tangled.
