Santken/Santkin/Sentjens - Goals

To have our European "Santken, Santkin, Sentjens, Zentjens" brethren join this project to ultimately define the scope of genetic relationship to the descendants of Mathias Santken/Saintian, b. 1550  in Antwerpen, Belgium. In doing this we can define the origins of the surname by also exchanging family histories that may triangulate the research findings recently published in the April 2013 issue of The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, in the article entitled, "Origins of Mathias and Nicholas Sension Determined".
