The greatest challenge facing the New Netherland Settlers Project is the multitudes of duplicates. The root cause of the addtion of duplicates is the inability to find these ancestors, compounded by the fact that it is tough to systematically group these families together through all of the names changes and variations. These categories will attempt remedy this.

The names have been chosen as the best candidate to help identify the family while attempting to stay historically accurate, though the names may not have even been used by the heads of the families.

The categories are meant to include any descendants that would traditionally inherit a surname, including daughters, but not the families of the daughters as they would belong to a different category. Each profile should only be included in one of these categories as the goal is to track families through name changes.
