From perusing this page I have come to the conclusion that many of you do not know of an important (if not THE most important) Van Sickle resource:
The History of the Van Sickle Family in the United States, published 1880 by John Waddell Van Sickle
IF you have a relative who was born before 1880 it is very likely that they are recorded in this volume. JW's work has some omissions but everything that is there is pretty solid, according to my dad who has been researching the family for the past 35 plus years (and has joined over 12 hereditary societies through the VS line).
Please consider either obtaining a copy via interlibrary loan OR purchasing a copy of the reprint via UMI in Ann Arbor. You won't regret it! The only drawback is that it is not indexed. :( Thus, you may have to go page by page through it. BUT I have found information in it that others have been searching years for (IE the infamous Gabriel (died in OH)).
