I have been receiving an education from reading the information shared on this forum. Thank you, all!
My thoughts as to the spelling of Vansickel and it being able to leading me to the right ancestors, has been important.
Are we descendants to the Zacharias Zekols or Ferdinandus Van Sicklen or is it Ferd? How do we know?
America is indeed a melting pot and we spell it like we hear it.
Presently we live in Orange County, another melting pot. I am often asking What is your name? Could you spell that Please?
Imagine my surprise when I found Van Sickel spelled three differnet ways in our family bible.

Just wanted to point this out. Thanks

Maybe they had been reading these messages on how the family name is spelled and were as confused as I am! Smile!
