Hi, I'm researching my partners family history of Janssens.  We live in Australia but are planning to come to Nijmegen to trace where his family have  lived.  His great grand father Johannes Antonius Wilhelmus Janssen was born 11 July 1888.  From what I've found he was one of 6 kids born to Johann Anton Janssen and Anna Maria Vos.  I have been able to locate Anna's birth record but I have not been able to locate Johann.  He was born in 1862 and may have been born in Kleve.  From what I can see Johann parents came from Nijmegen but married in Germany, hence why Johann was born in Kleve. Just wanting more information on Johanns birth and looking for relatives who live in Nijmegen now.  Cheers Megan
