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
* Hendrick
* Thomas

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 needs to be merged into
Stytje, wife of Thomas needs to be merged into

Tryntje Agges/Achias needs to be removed as the wife of Thomas and merged into the wife of Jan Thomasz as she was Thomas' daughter-in-law.

For the 'children' of VanDyke-83:

Nicholas needs more research 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 and merged into He was a progenitor of another family.

Ann needs to be detached again for the reasons given in her biography She appears to have been English.

Hendrick is probably supposed to be one of the other progenitors but should probably be merged into the son of Thomas to keep from odd redirects.

Jan should be merged into

Arcies should probably be merged into 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.
