Advice for updating pre-1700 line of Dyke's in Old Rappahannock

+1 vote

I am updating Dyke-839 with inputs from Tyler’s Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine; Vol. XVII.; No. 2.; October, 1935.  pp. 107-110 [M0112], and the sources referenced there. I need to make some assumptions about birth and death dates from ranges given in the sources. Other than "uncertain" or "before/after" is there something else I should put into the record?

Do you have any other recommendations to improve the profiles? The references go back to about 1630.

Thanks, Mike Moriarty

I don't know what the sources are in Tyler's, but there are quite a few abstracted and/or transcribed documents connected to this family at that may help you.  Included are the will of the first John Dyke who died in 1678, and records regarding the estate of son John who died in 1689 or 90.  I don't rely on this site for family relationships unless documentary proof is attached, but the compiler has done an amazing job cataloging the various records.

Thanks, Kathie, I agree with the philosophy of "the compilation is interesting, but the document is proof"...Tyler's cites the sources (although some are hard to find in the original uncompiled versions)

I will certainly check out the URL you cite.
