Henk van Kampen has not received any gifts yet
I have been interested in genealogy since an early age. Around 2003, I published my family tree online, hoping to connect this way with distant cousins. I did get e-mails from distant cousins, but I got even more requests for help with other people's ancestors, mainly from the U.S.A.
At the time, there were a few websites explaining how to find Dutch ancestors in an archive or family history center, but almost nothing on how to use the internet to find Dutch ancestors. I wrote a few articles about Dutch genealogy, including one called Trace your Dutch roots online, in a section of my website that I gave the title Trace your Dutch roots. This section quickly became the most popular part of my website! Today, Trace your Dutch roots consists of a large website, a newsletter with hundreds of subscribers, and a blog. Writing and researching for Trace your Dutch roots now takes up most of my genealogy time.
I am a charter member of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits, a group of graveyard bloggers founded by Terry Thornton. If you are interested in cemeteries please visit our Graveyard Rabbit group here on Genealogy Wise.
My own graveyard blog is The Graveyard Rabbit of Utrecht and Het Gooi, about cemeteries and burial sites in the geographical heart of The Netherlands.
I am the administrator of the Dutch genealogy Genealogy Wise group. If you have Dutch roots, this is the place to discuss them.
I also happen to be the author of Trace your Dutch roots.
