Followed Tags
Randi is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
I have ancestors from the Netherlands (Utrecht and other areas) who settled in counties around Albany, New York.
My full brother's Y-DNA test results match the surname, Reifenberg. We have autosomal matches to other German surnames.
My Huguenot ancestors settled Charleston, South Carolina. The closest surname in my pedigree is Bordeaux (other spellings with and without "de" Bourdeaux. I have many DNA matches to that surname.
I am a direct grand daughter (22-28th) of 15 Magna Carta Barons. 14 are on my father's side and 1 is on my mother's side.
I have Dutch ancestors who settled in counties around Albany, New York.
I'm related to at least 22 presidents. My ancestors on my mother's side were some of the earliest Virginia settlers. So far, I have added James Madison, the Harrison's, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, Abraham Lincoln, John Adams and John Quincy Adams to my tree. On my father's side, I have Dutch ancestors who settled in New York. The Roosevelt's are my cousins. Martin Van Buren is at least an in-law, but probably a blood relative.
My surname, Rivenbark, is the biggest mystery in my pedigree. The Rivenbark name appears in the mid 1700's in eastern NC. It was assumed to be German. DNA tests prove I have German ancestry. YDNA from my brother shows many connections to the Dutch name Roos (Roose, Rose, Rosenberg, etc). My pedigree has the Roosevelts and Aeldert Roose as relatives. Ros/Roos is also the name of a Magna Carta Baron from whom we descend directly. UPDATE: YDNA match to Reifienberg.
I have many Scottish and/or Scots/Irish ancestors, including the surnames, Cameron, Campbell, Cohoon (Colquehoun, Calhoun, etc.), Cunningham, Murray, Ramsay, Sutherland (Southerland), McLennan (McLendon), Kerr, Mitchell and more.
I have lines to areas around Zurich on my mother's side that connect through the name, Landis. I have multiple lines to Basel through my father.

Hi Randi,

You may want to also add Euroaristo to your tags! We share a common ancestor, Sancho IV de Castilla (Castilla-112). He’s a 23rd great grandfather for you and a 21st for me, making us 22nd cousins twice removed. According to the relationship finder here on wikitree, we also share 35 other ancestors found between us who were Kings of Spain, France, Germany, etc.

Cheers cousin!

Randi, I keep finding changes I need to thank you for! I thin there is one last merge that needs to be made in the Antoine de Bourdeaux line. I have listed it on the de Bourdeaux-8 record but it has yet to be merged which I can not do. Could you give it a try? Thanks!

Hi cuz.....

It's taken me a while to get here. Still hunting the Rivenbark mystery and tracing out the female lines as I have time. I'm getting matches from the Netherlands but can't trace them.

I am sorry, I also meant to ask if a Ted Rivenbark who I worked with in about 1970 in Wilmington and a Mrs. Malpass , you may know of. Mrs. Malpass may no longer be living. I think she was from that area. We all worked at Sears,but I do not remember her first name. At the time I did not know if they are connected, but I think they may be.

Thank you again. Linda Snow Davis

Hello Randi, I have Rivenbarks in my Croom/Malpass, Hawley, Woodcock, Pridgen, Gurganus, Moore, and others in Rocky Pt, Burgaw, Long Creek, Watha, Wallace, Lillington, Atkinson, Currie, in Pender Co., NC. I am interested to find connections to the Rivenbarks that are closest to those surnames. I have seen a few in my data that married into my lines. Also, those at Crooms Bridge, and Colvins Creek. If you know of any of these, please contact me. Happy to share what I have. Thank you.

Sincerely, Linda Snow Davis

Hello Randi!

Welcome to the New Netherland Settlers Project. Please visit our FAQ and feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you're looking for your ancestors that might already be on Wikitree, check out our Immigrants and Progenitors page, though it is not quite complete and does not reflect all of the profiles that already exist.

Cheers! Carrie
