There is a lot of information going back to the 1600 of the family Kip in The Netherlands (from the Province Noord Holland).
I am trying to find some info about (kip) ancestors that had slaves in ether New York or the West Indies (curacao). This is where my family is from.My ancestors were slaves and were trying to find out if we have any other family members that share our history.
p.s. There is also De Kyp family in Venezuela.
