My Ancestors are all from Friesland - I immigrated to Canada about 25 years ago.
The names I am researching are - Nieuwhof -Miedema - van der Zwaag - Wolters - Hijlkema - Okkema - Hiemstra - Hoekstra - just to name a few.
I also encourage everyone to leave a written record - to interview your oldest relatives while you still can.

I have a large amount of family information (some translated, some in Dutch) on the following: UDINK, OEDINCK, OEDINK. The family was from eastern Holland. I would be happy to share what I have if this name is in your family - dating back to 1560.

Holland to New Amsterdam in the 1600s: van Hoeck (now Vanhook), van Tienhoven, de Haes: related families are Vigne, Cuvelier, Bording, Balck who are not Dutch.

After 20 years of genealogy, I discovered these Dutch ancestors. Curious about possible living relatives.

Hi,
My Dutch ancestors are Gerard Swieringa, Jacoba Haverkamp, John Bos and Henrietta Haverdink. I do not know much about this side of the family and I am having a hard time finding information about the Bos family. I found conflicting information on them.They may be from Germany. They immigrated to Grand Rapids, Michigan in the late 1800's.
