It's nice to see mention of my many years of work in a message forum.
But it isn't nice to not see any reference to my name as the author of these words (which were taken from my website and placed here without my permission), or as the author of the book being spoken of.
For those who would like to read the rest of what I said about the Van Slyke family, or who might like to order either of my books on them, please visit http://olivetreegenealogy.com/nn/surnames/vslyke.shtml
