Gijsbert Veerman and Jannetje Bronkhorst

When I search for ancestors, I usually reconstruct their families, i.e. I find information on all their children (and other spouses, if they married more than once). There are a few families I skipped in the past, though, probably because I wanted to go back in time as far as possible, and as quickly as possible. Time now to revisit a few of those families. Today I present the family reconstruction of my 3rd ggrandparents Gijsbert Veerman and Jannetje Bronkhorst, numbers 34 and 35 in my ahnentafel. A relatively easy one, as all the...

Marriage certificate of Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker

Last week we had a look at the birth certificate of my great-grandfather, Hendrik van Kampen. Today we look at the wedding certificate of him and his wife Geertje Wiesenekker. Like the birth certificate, I found it on FamilySearch.org. Click to enlarge. A wedding certificate can be a long document, and often contains a lot of interesting information – like the names of the parents, whether they are still alive, and if so, where they live. I won’t transcribe and translate the entire certificate, I’ll just summarize: On 14...

Birth certificate of Hendrik van Kampen

A large part of the BMD records of the Dutch civil registration is indexed on sites like Genlias. In many cases, scans of these records are available for free on FamilySearch.org. Over the next weeks I will have another look at the BMD records of my great-grandparents (if available online). I have seen these a long time ago, most of them on microfilm (except for most death records, those are not available yet). I have made extracts of them, but no copies. Now that most of them are online I can have another look, and share them here on Roots....
