This Neeltje van Duyn-12 seems to me to be the proper profile to merge into for this New Netherland profile, just based on the matches that we currently have.

But she was born in the Netherlands, so we will also need to decide on her eventual patronymic LNAB. It will be something like  Cornelieusdr, based on the name of her father, but that spelling does not quite look right to me.

Neeltje is the immigrant wife of Jacques Cortelyou. 

If no objection or only minimal response, I would like to move this profile into NNS, and complete the pending merge by one week, on April 9, 2014.

But this G2G should stay open and liked to the profile, for further discussion on changing to some eventual LNAB later.

I am now going to proceed as outlined above, and move this profile into NNS, and set up completion of the merge.

To Steven MIX;

It's be proposed that Neeltje Vanduyn was older than her brother Gerrit. In Gerrit's

case his wife was born 1638 Amsterdam,Holland. Presumably Gerrit would have

been born that same year or earlier.  Since Neeltje's marriage 1655 is eight (8) yrs.

before Gerrit's marriage [proposed 'Oct,1663"] to Jacomyntje SWART/SWARTOUT/

ILIKERS. This would leave Neeltje born between 1630 & 1634 [my guess].

It's a date gues, and the bios are inconsistent. So it all needs better sourcing. I adjusted her birth up a few years, but then that puts her a decade younger than her husband, so I would not want to make it much later. And with a 1634 birth now, she had her last child at age 40. And with a later date, she still fits in a reasonabe range for birth to her parents.

I think the biggest question is who actually immigrated of this family. The claimed date is consistently 1649 in the various bios, but we need the ship name, port of departure, etc.

The primary project concern in that early stage was just getting a decent LNAB protected prior to merging, which has been done. But sourcing and proper data entry is always a work in progress, as more research and proof comes in.
