I am looking for anything related to the last name Slijk. My ancestor, Johannes Slick, b. 1725, came to the U.S. in 1750 from Rotterdam. His father was Elleus/Elleas (Cornelius??), b. 1699 in the Netherlands.
I can't find anything about Johannes' father or where they were actually from. Perhaps from Slijk, I suppose, but does anyone have any thoughts or ideas about any way to find out about people with the last name of Slijk there? Could Elleus be a shortened version of Cornelius? Could anyone look in a Netherlands census or other record for him or anyone who could be connected to him?
I have absolutely no idea where or how to look and would be grateful for any thoughts, ideas or information.
Thank you so much!!
