This is a report about some related families or families of some friends. It is mostly "second-hand genealogy" because I did not have the opportunity to visit the archives myself. I did receive information from officials at a number of archives at city halls in the Netherlands, but mostly I relied heavily on published information in journals such as "Gens Nostra", "Gruoninga", "De Nederlandse Leeuw",and "Westerwolde", on the "Groninger Kwartierstaten Boek", on information provided by a series of books "Boerderijen en hun Bewoners" (Farms and their Inhabitants), "Westerwolders en hun Woningbezit," and Sebo Abels' masterwork "Doopsgezinde Families in het Oldambt". Further I profited a great deal from genealogies published as books or on the Internet and from the generous help of family members and of many genealogy friends.
I am sorry that it is impossible for me to name all of those frienda and familymembers here, so I have to thank them all collectively. However, all will find their names in the "sources" section at the end of each report on our families, thus acknowledging their contributions.
Extra thanks go to my wife Tineke who tolerated me hiding in my study for many, many hours, surfing the internet and browsing through books and journals.
A good genealogist is supposed to check every item personally in the original archives. For obvious reasons I have not done that, so any errors others have made will have made their way into these pages, in addition to the errors I managed to insert myself. Take, therefore, everything cum grano salis. Any corrections and additions will be greatly appreciated.
Should anyone like to know more, just ask.
