The age of my grandparents

My grandparents were roughly the same age, there was less than five years between the eldest and the youngest. The eldest was my paternal grandfather, Henk (Hendrik, officially) van Kampen. As the eldest son of the eldest son, I was named after him. Opa Henk, as we, the grandchildren, called him, was born on 9 November 1912. One hundred years ago today. My maternal grandmother outlived my other grandparents. Her name was Maria Theresia Coppens, but the grandchildren knew her as Omoe. She passed away earlier this year, on 13 July, 97 years...

Tombstone Tuesday: Pardoen

The grave of my grandfather, Theodorus Joannes Gerardus Adrianus Pardoen (1914-1978), in the cemetery of the village Witteveen, province Drenthe. The epitaph Zie, ik maak alle dingen nieuw (Behold, I make all things new) is from the book of Revelations: And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for...

Gathering dust: Esperanto

Gathering dust: Esperanto

On Saturdays I rummage through my old cabinet, pull out and dust off an item, and present it here on Roots. Today: Two Esperanto certificates of Th.J.G.A. Pardoen (1914-1978). Esperanto is an artificial language created in the late 19th century. The intention of the creator of this language was that everyone would learn Esperanto as a second language so that all people could converse with each other, thus promoting mutual understanding and, ultimately, world peace. My (maternal) grandparents and several of my grandmother’s siblings...

School days

The prompt for the next edition of Smile for the Camera is School days: It is September, historically the month when a new school year begins. We all have images of the days spent in school. The barefoot children gathered together with their teacher in front of the rural school your ancestors attended. Children at their desks, children at play in the school yard, and those obligatory school photographs – one for every year. Show us your family memories of school days. Admission is free with every photograph! The photo I selected is...

Sunday Morning Genealogy Fun: Meeting ancestors

Because of the time difference, Randy’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun is actually Sunday Morning fun for me. This week’s assignment: 1) Write down which of your ancestors that you have met in person (yes, even if you were too young to remember them). 2) Tell us their names, where they lived, and their relationship to you in a blog post, or in comments to this post, or in comments on Facebook. All my great-grandparent died before I was born, but I met my four grandparents and two parents, so six ancestors in total. Three of them are...

An obituary

An obituary

The topic of the 5th GYR carnival is Obituaries: The “challenge” for the July 2009 edition of the GYR Carnival is obituaries. That’s right! This one is going to be a challenge of sorts. The “rules” are quite simple: Find a grave, then find the obituary, or vice versa. That is indeed a challenge: Obituaries are uncommon in The Netherlands. Celebrities get newspaper obituaries, of course, but most other people only have a death announcement. Some associations publish obituaries in their own publications, though,...

Wheels

A Canadian Family, a genealogy blog by Evelyn Yvonne Theriault, presents the first edition of A Festival of Postcards, a new blog festival. The topic of the first edition is wheels: “Share 1 or more of your postcards. Choose one that touches in some way on the topic of Wheels. Anything with vehicles, bicycles etc. is fine but you can also be creative with this theme. The ideal post will contain the front and back of the postcard, its size and any other information you might have.” I searched my postcard collection for bicycles. I...

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...
