Much of the data on this page seems to fail community standards.

Sharon, Wikitree policy site-wide is to use the names (for people and places) that our ancestors used or would have recognized, NOT what we think their names should have been, and NOT standardized names for all generations of a family.

ADDED: That policy is at Help:Name Fields, particularly in the section "General Naming Conventions," which says "Use their conventions instead of ours." The New Netherland Settlers Project Naming Convention is an extension to the general naming convention, describing its application to the New Netherland situation.

Suggest a common name for Van Kortryck Descendants--Courtright, Kortright, Kortget, Kortrect all in America--be agreed upon for Wikitree Tree. Van Kortryck for LNAB sounds best for me. Always include other names somewhere on the profile. Worked on it all day and cannot get a merge done because the mother's name LNAB is Weber/Webber if one understands why she also has the LNAB of Hansen--child of Hans or Jansen--wife of maybe Hendrick Jansen (son of Jan) Van Kortryck (in Netherlands and Kortright/Courtright after the came to America. Thanks for your input. Both Hendrick, the father and Pieter, the son have two wives who are the same person--it is the LNAB that causes the difficulty. Sharon

Leaving merge decisions up to the project on Van Santvoort-25. I'm not qualified to understand how to set final spellings in these names

This is a "first" for me: someone proposed a "merge" of a relative of mine which is part of the "New Netherland Settlers Project". Do I just compare the two and if they are a match proceed, or since the person is "project protected" does something else need done?

Philip married Gansevoort while only 21-23 years of age and many of the children are named according to the Dutch Naming practices and many have the same name as Frederick Philips' children. Philip after many years of marriage certainly could have married one Maria in Barbados giving his seafaring adventures. Naturally, this is speculation but much of it fits a pattern. If you have a problem with de Moer, it is a city in Holland and his mother traveled frequently to Holland to purchase commodities and then resell them in New York or New Amsterdam. She certainly could have been pregnant and delivered a child in Holland. Nonetheless, the two Philip Philipse present a mystery as to who is Philip Philipse de Moer's real father.

It is possible that this Philip Philipse who married Maria Sparks is also the same Philipse who married Elizabeth Gansevoort. Philip who is the son of Frederick was heavily involved with pirates, and his father's shipping interests, who not only roamed the seven seas but also they roamed the Hudson and exchanged much of their loot there for supplies and the Philipse Landed Properties stretched along the Hudson for miles approaching Albany. Philip was at sea much of his adult life carrying on his father's vast trading interest stretching from New Amsterdam to Barbados to Amsterdam to Madagascar. When his health began to fail he took his father's plantation called Spring Head at Barbados where he met and married one Maria...either Sparks or Farmer and there died.

Hi, Melona. Lott-658 already had the New Netherland Descendants project box, which used to be all that was needed to indicate that it was part of the project. I have added this account as project manager.
