Are you interested in the New Netherland Settlers Project?new_netherland.gif


Does my ancestor belong in this project?

That may be answered by reading the Project Scope section of the project page. If you're still not sure, add {{New Netherland Settler|needs=PPP}} to the biography of the profile and we can help determine if the person does belong in the project.

Are my ancestors already on Wikitree?

It is extremely likely but they might be difficult to find due to spelling differences. There are a few ways to find out if your ancestors are already on Wikitree.

First, search the Progenitors and Immigrants of the New Netherlands Settlers page for names or aliases that you are looking for.

Second, try looking under the first letter of the surname in the New Netherland Settlers category.

Thirdly, try posting in the Wikitree forum as many of us have quite a bit of experience with locating these profiles. Be sure to add the NEW_NETHERLAND tag to the post so that all project members will see it.

How do I include my profiles in the New Netherland Settlers Project?

Either add wikitree-new-netherland-settlers@googlegroups.com to the Trusted List of the profile or add {{New Netherland Settler|Needs=PPP}} to the biography.

What Last Name At Birth (LNAB) should my ancestor have?

The project uses a fairly strict, and not easily understood, set of naming conventions for the LNAB. For more information, see Project Policies section on the profile page.

What template or categories should my ancestor's profile include?

The appropriate categories are added to the profile by including the right template. For more information about templates, see the Templates section on the project page.

Many other questions may be answered by reading the New Netherland Settlers Project page. If you have a question that hasn't been answered, please ask on this page.
