New Netherland settler conflation: Van_Dyck-73 [closed]

+10 votes

There are bad genealogies floating around the internet that attempt to conflate all of the New Netherland van Dyck/van Dyke families into one.

There were at least three different van Dyke families of New Netherland:
* Frans https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Claess-3
* Hendrick https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dyck-63
* Thomas https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dyck-73

The families were disambiguated on Wikitree a while back but a duplicate of the conglomerate family reappeared.

The Thomas Janse VanDyke-83 and family needs to be broken apart and merged into the following:

Thomas Jansz https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-83 needs to be merged into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dyck-73
Stytje, wife of Thomas https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Verksdirks-1 needs to be merged into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Dircks-128

Tryntje Agges/Achias needs to be removed as the wife of Thomas https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Achias-4 and merged into the wife of Jan Thomasz https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Agges-1 as she was Thomas' daughter-in-law.

For the 'children' of VanDyke-83:

Nicholas needs more research https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-102 as it is not clear who he is. He is alledgedly the son of Thomas but was not discovered in the original untangling. The other children of Thomas are not known to have emigrated from the Netherlands.

Frans needs to be removed https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vandyke-101 and merged into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Claess-3 He was a progenitor of another family.

Ann needs to be detached again for the reasons given in her biography https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Unknown-329619 She appears to have been English.

Hendrick https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-98 is probably supposed to be one of the other progenitors https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dyck-63 but should probably be merged into the son of Thomas https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-27 to keep from odd redirects.

Jan https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-97 should be merged into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dyck-74

Arcies https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/VanDyke-96 should probably be merged into https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Van_Dijck-119 as his name obviously comes from the wife of Jan Thomasz.

Please keep an open mind about the dates that appear in the biographies as many of them are not sourced.
