Carolina is a participant of the Dutch Roots Challenge.

I was born in Arnhem and therefore an Arnhems “meisje” (little girl in Dutch and the name of an Arnhems cookie).

My father was born in Dutch East Indies and my mother in The Netherlands.

We moved to Hilversum when I was at junior school.

When I was a young girl I remember I rode on my bicycle to school with my friend Quirine. I was telling her the story about my father, looking for his mother who stayed behind in the Dutch East Indies. My friend asked me, why don’t you look for her. It was the beginning of a journey through time.

It is a tragic story.

When World War II broke out, my grandparents were separated as my grandfather became a prisoner of war and was forced to work for the Burma railway line. My grandmother and the four children had to go in one of the Japanese camps in the East Indies. The story goes that a Japanese colonel fell in love with my grandmother and told her that her husband had passed away.

My grandmother and the children escaped from the camp and towards the end of the war she fell in love with Raden Djaruman with whom she got her first son, Haryono. When my grandfather came back from the war he discovered that his wife remarried and they decided to divorce. My father and his two brothers left Indonesia together with my grandfather and his new wife to The Netherlands.

My father has never seen his mother again, only on a television broadcast by Polygon in the fifties where he saw her coming out from a plane in New York with her husband.

My father and his youngest brother Lewis tried everything in their power to find their mother, but didn’t succeed.

It was eventually me who found the second born son of my grandmother and her second husband in 1998. Too late, as she passed away two years before. But the foundation was laid for my interest in genealogy.

There are many intriguing stories in my family tree which I love to share.

I was born in The Netherlands and emigrated at the age of 38 years to South Africa together with my husband.

It was one and a half year later where I met the love of my life and soulmate, with whom I married. Together we emigrated to Italy, back to South Africa and since 2014 we happily live in Spain together with our 9 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, Jabula, born in South Africa.

My hobbies are cooking, walking, sporting, swimming, genealogy, learning Spanish, writing, photography.

I have my own cooking blog on my Facebook page CucinaCarolina.


According to the DNA-test, I'm 70.9% Europan and 29.1% Asian.

It’s been a pleasure!

It was exciting and interesting to do.

I got to know more about the members of the Dutch Roots Challenge project team members.

And I would like to thank you and other Wikitree members very much.

I love the use of Wikitree. It is a powerful source. Especially because it shares the sources of entries on profiles. And it is important that it is free and open to anyone.

I will keep promoting it.

With warmest wishes for you all.

I would like to assist. It is my first time. How do I know if another participant is for example searching for a birth registration of the same profile I am looking at. And what time on May 1st will the names be announced?

With kind regards, Carolina

Hi Carolina,

Wow, thank you for joining. First of all, yes it happens that two people are searching for the same. Mostly people announce on who they start at G2G after the persons are announced. And after a short time there are many family members having a profile and is the change little you re searching for the same. We re most of the time just with a small, but very enthousiastic group.

Everyone is also welcome to add images to the profiles.

The profiles we start with will be announced shortly before the challenge starts.

I hope I answered your questions? :)

Hi Carolina

Wow great start were the Member How-Tos pages helpful or did they leave you with questions?

Clicking your green tags shows members who follow that tag. Add tags other family surnames, for locations add a tag for DUTCH_ROOTS. The tags link you to the community sourcing & research options Information on tags is on page one of the How To pages.

We want to help you learn about the site and the community, hopefully you found the pages and links useful.

Questions click my name & ask in the comment box on my page or post in the G2G Forum (see Help top right of your Profile

Thanks for volunteering! You are now an active member of the WikiTree community, and can start adding your family.

I suggest starting with the New Member How-To pages, they will save you a lot of time and frustration. Building your family tree on WikiTree will help you connect with others who have the same ancestors.
