family tree diagram on this page shows the eight earliest generations
of Nieland ancestors that we have identified. The generation numbers
at the left of each level are also used elsewhere in this website
to help you
keep track of the generations.
Nieland Ancestor is probably Gerhard Nilandt, born about 1615
Gemen, near Borken, Westphalia. We do not yet have definitive proof
that he was the father
of Berndt Nieland (1645).
Berndt Nieland's (1645) first wife is called by several different
names in the various
church records. These include Anna im Porte, Anna Forck, Anna im
Wall and Anna von de Walle.
We believe all are the same person.
The original church records typically listed the Latin spelling
of forenames. In this chart
we list the modern German and American spellings of the names. Spelling
of an individual's
surname often varied from record to record.
