Hello everyone!

I'm trying to find information on my dad's paternal grandparents, Arend J. Kipp and Dena Wilhemina Bekker, who came to America from Holland and settled in Kansas in the 1880s. Thanks!

To Sandra Johnson - I too have Tryntje Kip in my ancestry. I am descended on the deForest line (her husband). My maternal line is a direct descendant of the deForest side, with the name deForest still prevalent.

Fellow Kipps,

This site may be interesting for the New York Kipps, although you may have already come across it.

I would be interested in seeing more of your tree to see if my Kipp (Germany to Kansas) line meets yours and helps me fill in the pluthera of blanks I still have on my tree.

I just wanted to draw your attention to my website at which demonstrates that the Quipp surname in Scotland consists of a number of related individuals all descended from one who can be traced back to Brigg in North Lincolnshire. Quipp is a variant of Whipp which arises on the Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire border.
The suggestion that Quipp is related to Kipp is I believe quite incorrect although I will certainly look at any information which appears to support any relationship.I visited one of these Quipps in Scotland some years ago and he was convinced for some reason that he was descended from Bonnie Prince Charlie which I am afraid was just wishful thinking on his part.

Kip/Kipp researchers should note that the NYPL Library has digitized the will of Hendrik Kipp of 1671.

Type Kip into the Search field.

Also try Kips Bay.

A translation of this will, which is in Dutch, can be found on my web page.

Please note that I have just updated The Kip/Kipp Family in North America web pages now found at:

I have updated the 1850 US Census file. This is still very far from complete.

The Rulloff de Kype file has been reduced to 9 generations, because the 10 th generation now contains "living" relatives.

The Isaac Kipp and Hannah Meed file, which is my family, has been extensively updated with sources (Census and BMD) for the first three generations. I am working on sources for the fourth generation but again there are "living" people in that generation.

Sorry, I just realized that this group is for those with the Kip surname...which I do not. However, I do have Kips in my genealogy. Only have three Kips - Tryntje Kip, her father Isaac and his father Hendrick. But I would be interested in knowing anything back further then Hendrick....let me know if I should leave or not. Thanks.

By the way I will ask our German line Kipp families if I can post the information they have sent me.

Eugene the problem with having an online file that can be added too by any family member is consistency of data. In my career as a librarian and scientist and a volunteer to the Ottawa Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society I learned about creating databases and having consistent rules of data entry. So from my point of view, the best way to deal with this would be to have family members of Kip/Kipp lines send data to one central source to be added to the database. I must admit I have not provided an update to the file for about a year. I have not had the time to add data from the sources I have found in the last year. However, I do plan to release a new version of the file within the next month.
