GETTING THE MAXIMUM GENEALOGICAL BENEFIT FROM "Names, Names, and More Names"
The recently published book, "Names, Names, and More Names" by Arthur C. M. Kelly has three main sections of use to genealogists. They are:
#1 Surname and Patronymic equivalents.
#2 Given name equivalents.
#3 Parents and married persons identified by given names only.
#1 Since many individuals were identified by both a patronymic as well as adopted surname in the early records, this information was used to construct these tables. As an example,- if you are working with the family that subsequently became Van WAGENEN, it would be helpful for you to discover (on page 79) that at least four different lines assumed the Van WAGENEN surname, namely, Aerts, Gerriits, Hendricks, and Jacobs in the early 1700s. That information should now allow you to broaden your search for ancestors so that you would consider those with these patronymc "surnames" as possible progenitors of your line.
Additionally, you can extend a search forward as well. For example, suppose that you have just discovered that a Maria STORMS was married to an ancestor of yours. By consulting page 141, you would discover that this patronymic became either BRATT or Van Der ZEE as a surname at the turn of the 18th century. Your research possibilities have now expanded considerably.
#2 The given name equivalent section of the book is particularly useful for discovering other spellings of a Christian name including nicknames. We wouldn't need a table for connecting Hulda and Hilda or Lizzie and Elizabeth but equivalents such as Helm and William or Nolte and Arnold might not be so obvious.

Format: Paperback
An essential guide for anyone researching Colonial New York and New Jersey, as both Dutch and English persons will be found in the records, and naming patterns made clear. The definitive work on the subject.
