Review of this book in July 2005 New York Genealogical & Biographical Record volume 136,
Number 3, page 223
"Willem Pieterse Van Slyke of Albany and Rensselaerwyck was known as Neef
or nephew, as his uncle Cornelis Antonissen Van Slyke was also a settler
in the area. Lorine Schulze, who published the genealogy of Cornelis'
family in 1996, has now produced an extensive account of Willem's
Initial narrative chapters cover historical background on
New Netherland and the Dutch; new research on the family in the
Netherlands which shows how uncle and nephew were related; and the lives
of Willem Pieterse and his children, including the identities of their
spouses, with resolution of several genealogical questions carefully
The remainder of the book contains a traditional genealogy of
Willem and his descendants, documented with 753 endnotes mostly
referencing primary sources. Ms. Schulze plans more volumes in the
series, including a supplement to the Cornelis Atonissen book with more
detail on the Netherlands ancestry."
