Hello, New Netherland Group!
I was surprised to discover my Dutch ancestry recently, and to be perfectly honest, the names themselves are what drew me to volunteer for this group. I still have to finish moving my Ancestry.com tree to Wikitree, but some of my direct ancestors include [[Knickerbocker-150]], [[Bogaert-92]], and [[Volckertszen-7]]. It seems that the Dutch manner of naming differs from what I'm used to (especially in regards to passing down surnames), but I'll do my best to acquaint myself with the system. I hope I can be of help in the project!
