|The Ancestors of Peter Van Olinda and Janie Giacomini were compiled from many sources including the records and recollections of relatives, internet sources, email and snail mail documents and a few books.
Worthy of special mention are:
Harry Philips whose work came to me from Susanne Borst
My Great Grandmother Caroline McFarland who compiled lists and charts of her ancestors
Laura Linder who provided me with considerable Van Olinda information and the leads to a number of Genealogical Societies.
Lorine McGinnis Schulze's book "The Van Slyke Family in America"
Lisa Clark who's web pages the "Descendants of Michel Brouillet dit Laviolette" at http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com supplied all of the past information on my Brouillet line
Specific Sources can, of course, be found in the source pages.
In some cases, Peter can trace his ancestors back quite far.
On his Mothers side
The Brouillet Line begins with Jacques Brouillette (1610-1670) or if you prefer,
The Hewitt Line begins with Gideon Huet (Hewitt) (b1746)
On his fathers side
James Mc Farland was a Captain in Revolutionary War.
Solomon King was a Colonel in Revolutionary War
Unfortunately, Van Olinda can only be traced back to John A Van Olinda (b 1796) and Catherine Osterhou(t?). The link from John to the first Van Olinda, Pietre Danielse Van Olinda has yet to be established
Janie's ancestors are not yet known back as far.
As navigation aids we have included
a Jacques Brouillette descendant chart
a Gideon Hewitt descendant chart
a Daniel Mc Farland descendant chart
