Family tree

The De Clercq family in America

After Hendrik de Clercq (1776-1850) moved from the Netherlands to Cazenovia, NY in 1794 and married Mary Ledyard five years later, he became the ancestor of a still flourishing branch of the De Clercq family in America.
In the second and third generation, some of his descendents moved west and soon the family scattered over the United States. Currently, familymembers live in New York, Rhode Island, Maryland, Missouri, Washington, California,  Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

In the following pages you will find a survey of Hendriks descendents.
For reasons of privacy, the genealogical information in this survey is limited to the parents of the now living, oldest generation.

If you select one of the six generations in the menu on the left, a list will appear of the family members in that generation with a personal page.
When you click on one of these names, his or her personal page will open.
By clicking on the hightlighted names of the parents or the children of this person, you can navigate through the familytree 'vertically'. The Back and Next icons can be used to navigate 'horizontally'.


The intention is to add more biographical information and more family pictures to each page. But this will take time.  And for this, help (information, digitized photographs) will be greatly appreciated!

To make the survey more surveyable, genealogical charts are added in the right column. Click on these to enlarge.
