I have started a one name study for the Van Zijl family. I have checked and found none existing.
My initial focus will be on the Van Zijl family in and around Bunnik, the Netherlands. Then further along in the Krommerijn Area (after pre-But certification). This stem is almost certain linked to the stem in Leidschendam, the Netherlands, descendants of which migrated to and succesfully settled in South Africa.
Variants of the name are:
Van Zijl, Van Zijll, Van Zeijl Van Zyl, van Sijl, van Seijl, Van den Zijl, van den Zile, Van den Sile
Love some pointers on how to advance!
