Tombstone Tuesday: Van Kampen

I shared many graves from the Bosdrift cemetery in Hilversum on this blog. Today’s grave is special, at least to me: Twice I helped carry a coffin to this grave, in 1997 and in 2007. Buried here are two people that I have known well: My grandparents, Hendrik van Kampen Jr. and Alida Melessen. They were buried in a family grave with my great-grandparents, Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker. I will not add any genealogical data here, as I already published plenty on this and other blogs and websites, with more to come. If you are...

Birth certificate of Geertje Wiesenekker

Geertje Wiesenekker is my great-grandmother, number 9 in my ahnentafel. Today we look at her birth certificate. A quick summary: On 18 September 1879, the midwife Alida Jacoba van Dijk, age 25, from Huizen, appeared for the registrar of Huizen, to register the birth of a baby girl, who was born in her presence on the 17th at 6.30pm, in house number 135, at the Koedijk street. The mother was Willempje Prins, no occupation, from Huizen, spouse of Gijsbert Wiesenekker, ambulant fish vendor, also from Huizen, who could not do the registration in...

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...

Family grave

Tombstone on the grave of my grandparents, Hendrik van Kampen and Alida Melessen, and my great-grandparents, Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker. The grave is full now, so other family members will be buried elsewhere, when their time comes. The tombstone is from 1997, when my grandfather was buried here. As most Dutch graves, this grave is leased. My grandparents have paid the lease since the first burial in 1941. When my grandmother died in 2007, the family paid a few decades ahead, but after that the lease will expire and the grave...

Gathering dust: The "trouwboekje" of Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker

On Saturdays I rummage through my old cabinet, pull out and dust off an item, and present it here on Roots. Today: The trouwboekje of Hendrik van Kampen (1877-1941) and his wife Geertje Wiesenekker (1879-1957). Introduced in the late 19th century, the trouwboekje (marriage booklet) has been handed out to married couples for over a century, as a proof of their marriage. It is a small booklet containing the details of the marriage (date and place) and basic genealogical data of both spouses (official names, place and date of birth, names of the...

Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker

Let me start this blog with a series of four posts introducing my great-grandparents. Today: Hendrik van Kampen and Geertje Wiesenekker. Hendrik van Kampen was born on 7 November 1877 in Hilversum, seventh of nine children of Barend van Kampen and Lammertje Veerman. Barend was a tailor, and the family lived in a small house on the Oude Torenstraat in Hilversum. Lammertje died a year after the birth of her youngest child, when Hendrik was 5 years old. Barend’s unmarrried sister Lijsje lived with the family after Lammertje’s death,...

My research

My main focus is my ascendancy chart (kwartierstaat in Dutch, Ahnentafel in German), an overview of as many ancestors as I can find, in as many lines as possible. On my website, I have cut my kwartierstaat in several parts. When I started my website, four of my ancestors were still alive (my parents and both my grandmothers), and I did not want to publish anything about them on my website. So I split my kwartierstaat in four parts – one for each grandparent – and I replaced the names of my grandmothers with the names of their...
