My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Surname Saturday -- TEN EYCK or TENEYCK (New York, New Jersey and Canada)

With over 304 Ten Eyck or TenEyck names in my database, I am pretty much related to all with that name.  This German surname translates in English to "At the Oak." To simplify the Descendant Register below, I didn't expand the first few generations as there are too many names.  Most of my early records came from The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, (1932) Vol. 63. "The Ten Eyck Family in New York" by Henry W. George.  Note: I am not done entering the names. My direct lines are in green.


This is one of my favorite lines because it belongs to my grandmother. I only met her once, but she was with me at my birth, as the nurse. It was only last year that I discovered my father also shares the first five generations of Ten Eycks.
