It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Jan Martense by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jan Martense:
In this case it's a patronymic and a patronymic is not a middle name, so it belongs in the first name field. And here you can find more about naming for Dutch (Roots) Profiles :)

Schenk-156 and Schenck-72 appear to represent the same person because: This is the oldest paternal ancestor in this chain in need of a merge. No tree conflicts. These matches have been reviewed by the New Netherland Settlers Merge Approval System, and the "Green" destination NNS profile is protected as PPP, and the "Merge Pending" profile is now ready and able to be merged into it. I saved the data to the bios. Thanks!
