Again, because you're researching a "Van Borculo" line, you've been directed to this page first, to help guide you through the maze of variant spellings you'll be encountering. Anyone not thoroughly familiar with the mind-boggling alliterations and cross-over spellings may easily hit an impasse trying to focus on one particular spelling.
To help avoid the same pitfalls most Van Borculo line veterans have experienced, I've prepared several examples to encourage those new to Van Borculo research to place less emphasis on the spelling while focusing more on locale, family names and specific data.
A reminder: the spelling here will represent that taken from the census. It may not represent the current or preferred spelling by the individual, his family or his descendants.
