Neikirk, Newkirk, Nikirk and Related Families, Volume One


An Account of the Descendants of Matheuse Cornelissen Van Nieuwkercke born c.1600 in Holland and Johann Heinrick Neukirk born c.1674 in Germany.

Research over nearly thirty years indicates that the vast majority of Americans bearing the subject family name, in any one of the more than twenty identified spellings, are descended either from one of these original immigrants, or from Johann Heinrick Neukirch, born c.1708 in Germany, whose descendants are the subject of another book. This study attempts to combine into one source information from all the known reports, newsletters, and manuscripts that could be found in various public and private libraries, together with public records in courthouses and archives, and presents what is believed to be the most comprehensive study yet of this important family, with numerous pieces of information previously unavailable. As this book is presented in an easy-to-read narrative style, there is no need to wander through a complex numbering system. Divided into thirteen chapters, this volume contains: photographs; illustrations; wills; inventories of estates; a bibliography; and a complete, every name, every-occurrence index with birth dates for quick identification of family members with the same name.
