A Surprise In My Genealogy May 11, 2016

Filed under: Ancestors,Genealogy,Jacobus Schellinger — Janet @ 2:54 am

I thought that all my ancestors were from the British Isles and that they came to New England initially in the 1600’s.  Now I have discovered an ancestor from the Netherlands – one Jacobus Schellinger and his descendants settled on Long Island.
