Hi William,

I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested to work on the Portal World-The Netherlands with Melissa and Bill and hopefully more members ? I was thinking maybe we can make it a sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, where you all can add or work on more specific things related to the Netherlands you would like to see added there or work on.

If you are interested just add your name to the list and let me know, or you can of course contact Melissa or Bill directly.

Greets from the Netherlands,

Bea :)

Fox-10859 and Fox-3742 appear to represent the same person because: Lena Fox created a duplicate profile for me because she was unfamiliar with WikiTree.

Hi William,

Did you know there's a new Source-a-Thon 2017 (first register here) organized for 30 September -2 October 2017 ? A huge event, to keep things organized we are going to work with teams again, since you're a member of our Project, perhaps you would like to join our Team Flying Dutchmen Team to help and source and improve Unsourced Netherlands profiles ?

We sure can use some help and you can win prizes, but the best thing of course is we are going to work on this together get as many as possible Unsourced profiles Sourced and improved and have a lot a fun ! :)

Great to hear your story about another Sylvester Wycoff descendent! My husband was a Wyckoff. His grandfather was John, son of Sylvester. My Dad was a Swaim. Both the Swaims and Wyckoffs came to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in the 1600s. You may have had a chance to see the Wyckoff house in NY? I met my husband in California. We were from opposite ends of the state. Since then, I have found 18 places where our various ancestors were in the same place at the same time.

Hello Cousin Dan, Wow! We have 223 common ancestors? Shouldn't we at least be brothers? Ha Ha! How do I prove my Sluyter-Sleuter-Slater connections? Do you know of any published genealogy/history of this family that I could read? My mother's line as follows; Lena (Rorick) Fox, Fredrick Rorick, David D. Rorick, Rheuama (Cline) Rorick, John Cline, Jr. now it gets confusing. Two brothers one named Johannes Cline (married Lydia Sleuter) and Jacob Cline (married Lydia Van Valkenburgh) they both had sons named John Cline and both married wives named Catherine. One was maiden named Caty Miller while the other was Catherine Deitz. I am at a brick wall as I can't determine which Cline was my ancestor Johannes or Jacob? Jacob Cline was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. I got copies of his pension papers but they don't help. Am I related to the Sleuter family or the Van Valkenburgh family? Help!

Hello Cousin William! The relationship finder says we're 9th cousins once removed, also having 223 common ancestors within 25 generations. I too, am a direct ancestor of Claes Sluyter on my Mom's side. Chances are that Claes was more of a Nederlander than a German....just think "Platt Deutsche." Nice to meet you!

Welcome to the 1776 Project (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:1776), a subproject of the Military and War Project: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Projects#Military_and_War_Project

There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

If you haven’t already, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include 1776 Project and any other tag terms that you wish to follow: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Special:Following

Some categories have a template (SAR) to add at the top of a biography. If not, add a category link by putting the category name such as
1776 Liberty Bell
Event years 1773-1789.
Join: 1776 Project
Discuss: 1776
for those who bore arms in the Revolution and
1776 Liberty Bell

Hi Janis, Yes, Edward Soule and Jemima (Soule) Baker were listed in the division of land of their grandfather, Joseph Baker. Anne B. posted that information for us. She found the documentation for that information and I except it as proof.
