Caution

A strongly worded caution about this work is included in the article The Hegeman Family of New Netherland: a brief outline of the first three generations. In relation to the Hegeman family, it is stated that Bergen's Register: "teems with conflations, repetitions and chronological impossibilities, and in which at least three of the heads of families are assigned erroneous parentages. Many of the shortcomings of this work are due simply to careless handling of source materials, as Bergen had most of the necessary documentation at hand but committed many errors of transcription and interpretation. Indeed, some of his identifications are completely arbitrary, and have no evidence whatsoever in their favor."
