Van Brocklin Family Genealogy

The Van Brocklin Genealogy by Walter Van Brocklin

The Van Brocklin Genealogy, written by Walter Van Brocklin, is available in Microsoft Word format. I make no claims as to the accuracy of the conversion from the very battered copies I had to work with. I have tried to state information more clearly in a few places, and tried to make the format more reader friendly. The only thing not completed is to correct the page numbers referenced within the genealogy. They have changed in the conversion process, and I haven't had the ambition to fix them.

I went through this process to make it easier for everyone interested in having this information. It will now be much easier than going and making copies for people that want this information. It is also searchable, instead of going through it page by page trying to find a name. I am sure there are errors, and I would appreciate it if you passed them along to me so I can keep an accurate original. You may notice many inconsistencies in the spelling of words, but these exist in the original work.

Email me if you would like a copy of it or click here to download it. I hope it helps you in your research.

Web-Based Van Brocklin Genealogy

I created a web-based Van Brocklin family genealogy based on the research done by Walter Van Brocklin. Most of the information was published in the Van Brocklin family association newsletters. I have attempted to reproduce the genealogy as contained in the newletters with additional information that I have collected.

I have tried to cut off the genealogy around the early 1900s to protect the privacy of those now living. If anyone finds information in this genealogy that they do not want made public, please let me know and I will remove it.

Please email me if you would like information on a particular person or line. I would also appreciate any comments and additional information or corrections to what I have provided here. I hope that this information is useful and interesting. The starting point of the genealogy is Gysbert Gerritse Van Brakel (4). All known VBs descend from Gysbert and his wife Reyntie Stephense.

VB Photos

The following photos were submitted by Jane Everest. These may have been taken at Freeport, IL around 1962. They were not taken at the same time, however, some of the same people are in both photos. There were no names with the photos. Any help identifying the people in the photos would be appreciated.
