"Arnold, Hi, I hope you are fine and healthy and still interested in your descendancy.
I am most probably a far away cousin, as my great grandmother is Jantje Sieds Siedsma, the younger sister of Jentje Sieds Siedsma, your great grand father.
What countries and other locations are you interested in researching?

Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I want like to get into contact descendants of Jentje Sieds Siedsma, as I am writing a book about the almost-emigration of my great grandmother Jantje Sieds Siedsma. Her son Jacob (11 yrs) already had accompanied his uncle Jentje to the USA in January 1894, expected his parents to follow withing a couple of months. They did NOT, but.... his mother Jantje Sieds Siedsma wanted her son back in Holland, so she sailed in May of the same year to NY in order to bring her son back to Friesland. She had to work during a full year before she was able to buy returntickets for both of them.
