Sol, Soule DNA and halogrouping

I am a little familiar with DNA but have not fully researched it. Do you know how many Soule have contributed to the DNA test? Has there been any close grouping from a variant of completely different…Continue

Hi Armando,
I've seen the coat of arms you posted.
Have you seen the foto's from the wax seal yet on my page?
Comment by Patrick Edward Sol on January 4, 2010 at 3:54pm
Ihave checked it already.
they only mention it because it exists they say.
they don't have a copy they said.
if they had the book i could have got a copy from it.
so thats a dead end for now

Patrick, have you checked this website for SOL info.

They make a reference to the book "Genealogie Zoll-Sol" as a source of information. Maybe worth checking out. Very surprised that both Gronigen Universtiy and the CBG list the book but do not carry it?

Sometimes nothing works but visiting the graves. You have the grave number for your grandmother....with any luck, your grandfather is buried next to her! When you visit the graves, remember to to take digital pictures. Then you can post the tombstone pictures on [also a picture of the entrance to the cemetery with the cemetery name]
And then hope a cousin finds your pictures on!!

Your primary goal is to learn the names of your grandfather's parents.....which might be in the cemetery records, or his death certificate.

Perhaps a personal visit to the cemetery office would help? Also, if he died from "leaks" in his digestive system, that implies he died in a hospital......does the cemetery know which hospital?
These ideas may be totally off base, but here goes: if he had ulcers from heavy drinking, perhaps the family did not want to admit his alcohol habit. Or, perhaps he was committed to a mental hospital and died there? Soldiers who were wounded could become addicted to their pain medicine and could live in a mental hospital......not something the family would want to talk about......are there veteran's hospital records??

Or is it possible your grandfather was seen as a supporter of the Germans during World War II?? Did he see service in any military force, German or Dutch?

there is a compleet register.
the cards and registrations from the cementery are also there.
the problem is that is name is in the list but the information is blocked.
from my grandmother i can see, date of birth,date of death,date of buriel and here grave number.
it says also that she's married to him.
but from him there is just only his name.
i don't think he's cremated because it was not the usual thing in those days.
all the information is brought together in the civil registers from Amsterdam.
and only if there is something special about him,then the information is blocked or you must be still alive.
and thats impossible.........i think
if not..........then there is a real big lie in the familie!
they said he died from leaks in his digestive system......
if he's still alive he must be about 97 years old.
i'm just thinking out loud now
its possible....

Was your grandfather buried? Can you visit the cemetery? In the USA, the cemetery office often has more information than the death certificate. Or was your grandfather cremated?
Comment by Patrick Edward Sol on December 15, 2009 at 12:13pm
I'm waiting now for the reply from the registers at Amsterdam.
There are some listings from the Sol Familie.
But they are not digitalised yet.
I've filled in a form to let them digitalize the birth documents and burriel docs.
So i can see on line if there is someone from my familie on it.
I have to go there myself to find out why the documents about my grandfather are hidden.
The only documents you cant see are those frome people who are still alive.
And he's dead for at least 40 years!??
I don't know what happened in the past but I am very interested now because the never talked about him in the famili as wel.

I let you people know when i found something
