Hi all, One of my main lines is the Veeders. So far I have traced them back as far as New Netherlands in North America. From what I have read, Veeder seems to have originally been primarily a Frisian surname. I am still working on tracing them back to the Netherlands. They are connected with many other surnames back in New Netherlands that I am guessing are likely mostly also from the Netherlands, but I don't know yet how many of them would have been Frisian.

My husband and I were both born in Friesland he in Berlikum, I in Akkerwoude.
I want to back sometimes and visit the old churches, and of course the archives in Leeuwarden. I am glad that all the archives are so readily available online. How do you do most of your research?

I live in Friesland and my whole family originates from this province. My main research concerns the TALMA surname (see my Talma Research Group on Genealogy Wise). Connected families are a.o. Merema (Groningen), Wiersma, Walda, Draaisma, Nota, Uitterdijk, Raap and Leistra.
