That is amazing Elisabeth, thank you so much, you have given me some great info to follow up on for sure. I noticed you were unable to take the Leegen name back any further than i had, which leads me to assume that maybe they had migrated to Hindeloopen about the late 1700s from another country.

Thnx Elisabeth.......I am researching Klaas Klazes and Klaas Gerrits (surname Leegen/Legen), Jemertje and Sierds (surname Hommes), as well as Liewrkjen Hendriks (surname de Jong). I will try the Tresoar website using only first names thanks.

 

Comment by Elisabeth Nieuwhof on August 14, 2011 at 9:54pm
Have you tried researching without a last name - not many people had a last name before 1811, most people had to have a last name after Napoleon came to Friesland. What are the names - first names of those you are researching?
Comment by Michelle Mostert on August 14, 2011 at 9:13pm
My Frisian ancestors are Leegen or Legen from Hindeloopen. I have traced them back to the mid 1700s there but seem to have hit a brick wall. Where did people who migrated to Hindeloopen most likely come from during that time?????
Comment by Sande Meyer Smith on July 9, 2011 at 7:14pm
Thank you! I use find a grave for in the U.S and have found most of my family thats here but had no clue how to get any from Friesland and I doubt I will be able to go there (someday I hope!) I will let you know how I do!!
Comment by Elisabeth Nieuwhof on July 9, 2011 at 5:19pm

I would have loved to visit the cemeteries and take pictures of the final resting places of my ancestors, but that was impossible ( maybe someday). Than one day I came across the website of Graftombe
Graftombe's goal is to make as many cemeteries and graveyards in the North of the Netherlands digitally available to genealogists and others interested as possible.
To achieve this goal various volunteers have been (and are) busy indexing and photographing cemeteries and graveyards in the provinces of Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe.
To take advantage of this service you have to sign up for the forum first, which is just a formality, but it also gives you access to a lot of other websites.

Once on the site, you can either search by province and by cemetery.

If you do not have that information you can go to search (zoeken ) and fill in the form with the name you are looking for.
Once you found the name you were looking for, check the box in front of the name and click (plaats geselecteerde foto's in het opvraag mandje - place selected photos in the basket).
You can proceed to add more names, and once you are done click on Fotomandje at the top of the page and check out (no payment required)
In the next few days you find a photograph of the gravestone you are looking for.
This was a great service to me, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who give of their time to make this service possible.
Click HERE to visit Graftombe.
Let me know, if you need any help.
Comment by Sande Meyer Smith on July 9, 2011 at 5:12pm
Can anyone answer for me if there is anywhere I can get cemetery records for my Friesland ancestors or is that not possible.Also I am concidering getting a DNA profile done,I know I am from Friesland as far back as I can paper trace,does anyone have suggestions or comments about DNA because I really don't understand how it works and wonder if it is worth my while...thanks
Comment by Elisabeth Nieuwhof on July 9, 2011 at 4:57pm
Karla, which Sartorius and Dirksen are you looking for, and what time frame are you searching?
Comment by Elisabeth Nieuwhof on July 9, 2011 at 4:46pm

hi karla, welcome to the Friesland Group,

Moordorf is not part of west Friesland, but of Ostfriesland (East Friesland), which is

the northern part of Germany (part of Niedersachsen). There are actually 2 places called Moordorf.  I actually used to live close to it in my teenage years (that's a while ago I guess)
