By the way there was an Antonius van den Broek that came up with the idea of the Periodic Table is this a relative of yours? I know with naming system there may be several Antonius's.

Here are 2 examples ending with letter "e" in "van den Broecke"

Here instead of three part spelling, we have the two part spelling of the last name "vanden Broeck"

Hi Armando
Thank you for posting those Dutch sites and for your comments. Mum is Dutch and its her family I am researching, however she left when she was very young and the family lost all contact with their Dutch relatives. We therefore have no real knowledge of the naming traditions and what the names actually mean and which names are similar variants etc. I did travel back a few years ago and actually managed to locate some relatives so I really must check the sites again for any additions of new data etc.

My line details are on my page: http://www.users.on.net/~jlkadir/VanDenBroek.html

Here the name is spelled "van den Brouck"

If you are researching this name do not be surprised if you see variant changes within the lineage you researching. This means do not discount the information because of spelling of the surname. I have seen many examples of surname spellings that change 3 times or more within consecutive generations of dutch families.

van den Broek is one of the many variants of van den Broeck. There are many different families and familiewapens(family coat of arms).
a good place to start would be GENLIAS.nl and CBG.nl websites for information.

Here is a van den Broeck family arms from Belium area which use to be part of the Netherlands!
