After making contact recently with Lorine McGinnis Schulze, I have spent a bit of time on the Van Valkenburg website reading through the pages of information about our family. There is a lot of information to absorb and I will share it with you here as I sort it out. In the mean time, I will show you the new information which when added to our current tree will show our family for 15 generations when we go from my grandchildren of today back to the first known Van Valkenburg.
For privacy sake, I will show back to my mother is who deceased as I did with the Norwegain lines in her family last year.

Now I can sure see why I was a bit confused with the Van Valkenburg trail years ago. Today there are many researchers who have done a lot of work on the family and I am the happy recipient of it now that it is available on the internet.
This is the original family crest which dates back to around 1250. More on that later....
So until next time....
