Tombstone Tuesday: Van Kampen

Van Kampen family grave, Bosdrift cemetery, Hilversum

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 interested, check out their files on my personal genealogy blog: Hendrik van Kampen, Geertje Wiesenekker, Hendrik van Kampen Jr. and Alida Melessen.
