The ancestors of Henry and Sarah come to life with a time line and copies of original documents from each of the families in the Henry Hendricks pedigree. There is no better way to understand the movement of our Hendricks family and to learn some of the stories. With the advent of the internet and the availability of records at the touch of a button, it is amazing to see the images of the original records illustrating the research used to find ancestors of each family line. View the 1663 passenger list of De Rooseboom showing Jacob Hendricks Hafte, who was thought to be our direct line ancestor, but research has since shown he was a cousin to our Henry Hendricks. Stories about the Staten Island Ferry started by the Cortelyou brothers, and maps and discussion about the Albany fur trade belong to our family. Plan your visit to Long Island to see the oldest home in America built by our ancestor, Pieter Clasesen Wyckoff, and see A Tale of Two Barns that belonged to the Schenck family.
