It is important to note that not all Wyneken descendants appear in the upcoming comprehensive tree. Because the trees turned out so large I had to make a cut-off point:
- Everybody whose last name is Wyneken is in the tree.
- Everyone whose mother’s maiden name is Wyneken appears in the tree.
- If your grandmother’s maiden name was Wyneken but her children were not named Wyneken, then unfortunately you’re not in the tree.
- If none of your grandparents bore the name “Wyneken”, then you’re not in the tree.
Since it is common in many cultures for women to change their last name when they marry, this means that effectively I have had to cut out descendants of female Wynekens.
