Looking for Jewish boy who was housed in the Netherlands

+10 votes
I recentely found an old picture of my x great uncle and his family during ww2, i alwags thought a joung boy to his right was his, but my great aunt in a recent visit told me he was actually a Jewish boy who was being kept safe by the family, all i know about this child is that he went by Piet.

His "dad" was Riekelt de Boer born in 1906 in Velsen and died in 1993 in Velsen,
His "mother" was Jannetje Guijlt, who was born in 1907 and died in 2006, he had two brothers, gerrit and Jaap, and a sister whos name might be Jannie, but this might just be referring to the mother.

His grandparents on his fathers side was Gerrit de Boer (1863-1930) and Jannetje Bakker (1867-1930).

I can find info on everyone but the children.
Anything would be nice, i am planning to contact my great aunt to see if she knows anything or anyone who might.

This family resided in Velsen/IJmuiden and had other relatives in Urk
I do have profiles of the parents but arent fully sourced yet, but the dates do seem
 to be correct

Marriage Riekelt de Boer and Jannetje Guijt, June 25, 1931, Velsen.

Entries in personal webtree.

In the Netherlands there is a 100 year privacy restriction on birth certificates, so for the children that source is unavailable.

Hi Sytze,

I live in the neighbourhood of Velsen and I know two Piet de Boer's ( but also Gerrit de Boer) are you planning in finding Piet? Do you want me to post something in Facebook in that area?

Marvelous, dear Margaret--for your forward and practical mind. What a joy to see a true collaboration in our searches. Records are not the only way to find a family. I wish I had some collaborators like Margaret and Jan !!

That's a nice comment Roberta, thanks a lot. It's just a pity that all my searches didn't lead to the right answer yet. Even Facebook didn't help. So I'll keep on searching and sourcing.

Have a nice weekend
Bravo!!!!! and thanks!!
