This is a great website, thank you so much for all the information shared! I found many Dutch ancestors going as far back as 1647. The information you share on your website helps me to understand the Dutch language and the regions more. Thanks again!

We are trying to get in touch with members of my wife's Dutch relatives. Her father was Johannes Kok and he was born in Rotterdam in 1918 and his father was Jacobus Antonius Kok was born in 1871, also in Rotterdam.
We are trying to contact my wife Geraldine's cousins, who are Ben Kok and Ria Kok. Their parents were Joop (Jacobus?) Kok and Mary Kok. They lived in Amsterdam. Ben and Ria will probably be in their late 60's now. Can anyone help?

Hello cousin Henk

Hoping to visit first week of August after first visiting wife's Irish homeland. Am descendant of Gerrit Jansen Van Kampen, who served with Peter Stuyvesant in New Amsterdam.

Perhaps there is some earlier lineage in Kampen area???

Hi! My husband's family (John Kolkana) emigrated from Holland to the US in 1872, but we suspect his name was changed to Kolkana upon arrival in America. I have searched endlessly to discover what his birth name was, but to no avail. I'm hoping I can find more information here. Thank you!

Reactie van Henk

Hi Mandy,

There was a Kolkena family in the town Kloosterburen (province Groningen) in the 19th century, maybe your husband descends from this family?

Hello, I am 55 , and have been searching for my 3 times grandfather from Holland. The last person who knew him was my great grandfather, who died in 1976, when I was 16. They say his name was Alvino, and that his town was near a harbor. The story goes on to say his mother and father died of illness, so he stored away on a ship, as he was alone in the world. What he didn't know was, that it was going to Mexico!! He was 12 or 13. I think he left from Harlingen, my great grandfather mention his wooden shoes and his blue eyes, also how tall he was! Where can I go from here, time is running out. Can someone from Friesland help me?!
Sincerely, Clara

I will be looking for my Dutch ancestors. I know they sailed from Hamburg around 1750, as "Fightmaster" is documented there. But I know that this was the name given to them when they arrived. A mother and 2 sons, at least one of whom was married at that time. The story goes: the oldest son signs the ships manifest as "Veit(sp?)...master" as in head of the family. This is possibly misinterpreted as Fightmaster. And they carry on the rest of their lives as Fightmaster.

My great grandfather was Adam Wiebe von Harlingen. He was the inventor of the cable car. He left Harlingen due to the Spanish invading in the late 1500's and settled in Danzig Germany/Poland. He was given the title of Royal Engineer by the King of Poland for his engineering works and achievements. I would love to visit Harlingen and Danzig someday. I have a connection within my heart i cannot explain to both locations. God Bless, John D. Wiebe

Thank you for this wonderfully useful website! I can see that I will be referring to it over and over.
I have traced an ancestor (1766 - 1825) whose occupation is listed as wijnrooijer and rijksroeijer. I am battling to find translations. Would you be able to help? Thanks so much.

Traced my ancestors back to Jan Van Deursen born 1393 in Deur(s)en, Netherlands. Having trouble tracing his father and connect to Govert Van Doorsen. Traveling to Netherlands in August and looking for local help with research.

Reactie van Henk

Deursen is a village in the municipality Oss, province Noord-Brabant. Get in touch with the city archive of Oss ( Homepage ), or the provincial archive of Noord-Brabant ( Homepage ). They can probably help you (or know someone who can).

My mother was born in Fryslan. Grandpa was Johannes Wielinga born Twyzen? Fryslan. December 09,1900. I know he had a large family. His father and mother were Olle Wielinga and Gerrietje Koster.
Grandma was Ulberdina or Berindina Buitjes Zoutkamp April 27, 1902. Grandma missed her home land. I only have Grandma's mothers name Bereentji Buitjes.
My mother was Bereentji May 20, 1925. Possibly born in Niekerk.
I'd like to know more about them when they lived there.
I'd love to hear from anyone with information. I'm beginning to put information in ancestry.com.
Thank you so much.

I have just read the information you provided on Dutch baptisms, marriages, and births. Thank you! The information is wonderful and helpful! I appreciate your work! My maiden surname is Becker, and according to the information I have my ancestor was Jeuriaen Becker (1608-bef.1708) in the Netherlands. His son, Jan (Juriaensen) Becker, born 1630 was, as a young man, sent over on the "King Solomon" by the West India Company to serve as its clerk. He married Maria Adriaens in America. Other Dutch ancestors who married into the Becker family include the Van der Zees, Van der Bilts, etc., all from the Albany (New York) area. Information I have about the Becker family in the Netherlands is that Jan was born in Noord-Holland. (The source of this information came from a family tree on Ancestry, so I do not know how accurate it is). I also do not know the name of Jurrian Becker's wife and am wondering if you could suggest how I might be able to obtain this. Thank you for any help you can provid

I have just "stumbled" upon your site and find it extremely useful. My mother was a war bride who came to Canada in 1946. She left 6 brothers and sisters in Almelo. She lost contact with them and I never asked her about her life in the Netherlands while she was alive. I have obtained addresses of (hopefully) one living uncle and one cousin. I am totally new at this genealogy and will be happy to know more about my Mom and her family. She was born in Scharnegoutum in 1919 and her family moved to Almelo. I will be visiting the Netherlands in May and hope to learn a little more. I plan to use the resources on your site to help me. Thank you for putting this all together.

Just found this website. Fantastic site!

I am just beginning to trace my mother's family, all of whom seem to come from Fryslan. My mother (died in Canada in 2010) was Janna Schaap, daughter of Jan Schaap and Ietje Betten. For now I am focusing on the women: I've gone back to great-great-great-great-great grandmother Antje Hendriks Minkema, 1785 - 1874. I know the "great"grandmother before Antje was first name Itjte, but don't know if her surname was Abeles, or Abeles Hofman. Haven't found a birth record for her.

I have so far found: Ietje Betten (grandmother), and before her, Trijntje Bus, Ietje Andries Bus, Jantje Roelofs Luik, Antje Hendriks Minkema, and Itjte Abeles (? Hofman).

Any suggestion as to how to go back further? I speak only English.

Reactie van Henk

Dear Christine,

In the 18th century many Frisian families did not have a family name. The name Hofman may have been adopted in 1811, when family names became compulsory. So before 1811, look for Ittje (or Yttje) Abel(e)s. Keep in mind that spelling of names was inconsistent at the time!

1811 was also the year that a proper registration of births and deaths started. Before 1811, search for baptisms and burials in church books. Not all books are indexed yet, but many are scanned and available at familysearch.org.

Good luck with your search!
