Finally, a guide to the evolution of Dutch surnames. How did old world Dutch names like Makentews and Oculi suddenly become Macintosh and Oakley? Probably a recording error by an immigration clerk, census-taker, clergyman or other scribe. Such an error can thwart even an experienced researcher's best efforts to document his or her ancestry. Names, Names, and More Names can open the flood gates by making the connections between contemporary surnames and their Dutch origins. This book is the result of more than thirty years of research of the Dutch patronymic naming system. In it, Arthur C.M. Kelly offers a comprehensive treatment of Dutch patronymic surnames, their variations and origins. Divided into three sections, the book details essential information and provides informative tables on surnames, given names, and father and mother pairs. It also includes a discussion of the evolution of names and naming and a guide to understanding surnames. This book is essential for family historians tracing Dutch ancestry. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" paperback. 343 pages. ISBN: 0-916489-91-4
