James Van Eldik [Jim] is my first cousin. My Mother, Bertha, and Jim's father, William Gysbert Van Eldik, were brother and sister. I believe his middle name is Gysbert although it may not be spelled right. I have also heard from Scott Van Eldik who is the son of Jim's brother William.

If you go here:

http://home.earthlink.net/~mkderck/eldik.html

I have pictures posted. THIS IS NOT A PUBLIC SITE.

I have unverified information about some of the relatives in Holland through "Cousin Herman". However, I never got a physical address for his home [he worked in The Hague] and he does not answer emails now. He sent me via email his family history going back to the 17th century. I do not think it is verified either. However, it is clear that my Grandfather, Dirk, and his great, great, great [I believe] grandfather Herman were brothers. Also if you look at the parents of Dirk -- Dirk J. and Adrianna Visscher -- and then the pictures that Herman sent, you can see they are the same people but older in his pictures. Also, "Cousin Herman" said in the family that the oldest sons were named Dirk and Herman. And the children of Dirk and Petronella, the oldest son is Dick and the second oldest son is Herman. William is the youngest son.

So, I'm not very good at this.....but does that make your daughter in law my second cousin, since Jim is my first cousin??? I also have pictures from the maternal side -- Dirk's wife, Nellie or Petronella, and her parents. These are not posted on the website but of course I am willing to share whatever I have.

I'm not sure what you would like to know.

Mary ....or as Jim would know me as .... Mary Kay

That makes Jennifer Lynn Van Eldik and her sister Collette and brother Travis your 1st cousins once removed. That is the one thing I got out of an anthro. course at FSU many, many years ago.

Thanks for the spelling for her Grandfather William's middle name.
Do you use a family history program? Carole in Peachtree City, GA

I also use Family Tree Maker...I think it is version 11. Talked to Jennifer last night. She was excited about the possibility of getting more Van Eldik information. I will show Jim the Message you put on the board. He is now living in Newnan, GA which is the next town over from Peachtree City where I live. Carole in Peachtree City
