The main family of my research is the family Van Zwol of Friesland and Overijssel in the Netherlands, and it dates back to as early as 1675. The name Van Zwol as a family name appeared first in a document of 1471 where the church gardian of Inglum (FRL, NL) "Tzumma Nanna zen Aendinga" sels a lot of land to Arnt Van Zwol and Hille.
The name is spelled in many ways: Van Zwol, Van Zwoll, Van Zwolle, Van Zwollen, Van Swol, Van Swoll, Van Swolle, Van Swollen, Zwolle, Zwol, Zwolstra. Besides the Van Zwol's in Friesland en Overijssel there is also an extensive Van Zwol Family in the Westerkwartier, Province of Groningen, a few in the city of Groningen, in Noord and Zuid Holland and Utrecht.

Other families that I researched or have info on include Kappe, Bulthuis, Hesling, Van Oosten, De Jager, De Jong and the family Ross and Topping from the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Canada.

Any information regarding these families is appriciated and I will gladly respond to your E-Mail questions.

Alle informatie met respect tot deze families is welkom en het is mij een genoegen om op Uw E-mailen te reageren.
