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 sisters, who were long deceased. Later, I split my paternal grandmother’s chart in two, because her parents (and their ancestors) came from completely different parts of the country. So there are five parts now:

Hendrik van Kampen Geertje Wiesenekker Albert Melessen
kwartierstaat
Mietje Houthuijzen
kwartierstaat
Th.J.A. Pardoen C.J.M. Koopman H.F. Coppens J.P. Moerman
Hendrik van Kampen
kwartierstaat
Alida Melessen Th.J.G.A. Pardoen
kwartierstaat
grandma
kwartierstaat of her sister
dad mum
me

I also research descendants of Lourens van Kampen and Neel de Vos bearing the name Van Kampen, and descendants of Paulus Pardoen (1747-1823) and Johanna Pietersen with the name Pardoen.

I have spent many hours in Dutch archives, especially the city archive of The Hague and the provincial archive for Noord-Holland in Haarlem, but also many other archives. I have also researched in Belgium, and will do research in Germany at some point, because some of my ancestors came from there.

Files: Hendrikus Franciscus Coppens, Mietje Houthuijzen, Hendrik van Kampen (1877-1941), Hendrik van Kampen (1912-1997), Catharina Johanna Maria Koopman, Albert Melessen, Alida Melessen, Johanna Petronella Moerman, Theodorus Johannes Adrianus Pardoen, Theodorus Joannes Gerardus Adrianus Pardoen, Geertje Wiesenekker
