1983 I was born in in Kampen, Overijssel, Netherlands to Leo Hollander (Hollander/Scholten) and Alice Anne van Dyk (van Dijk/Smit).
2008 I married in Elburg, Gelderland, Nederland with Leon Dubbelboer, until now no kids, only dogs :).
2013 I started working on my Family Tree after my grandmother passed away, I learned some really interesting things about her and the rest of my family. A wonderful journey has started, with a never ending end I guess
2015 I discovered WikiTree, what a wonderful place to be, but still a lot to learn.
2016 I migrated with my husband and our pets. First we spend 2 wonderful months on the Bahama's and after that we started our new life in Hungary, where I found a great job. Don't think we will ever return to the Netherlands, at least not for good. Holidays and family visits yes.
2018 We celebrated our 10th anniversary during the 2018 Source-A-Thon weekend.
2020 We welcomed our son Roderik into the family, adding a new branch to our Family Tree.
2021 Joined the Netherlands Project as Project Coordinator
2022 I starred on "Meet our members" in January. Read my interview on G2G to get to know me a bit better

I'm researching the following direct lines:
Since I joined WikiTree, I participated in the following WikiTree Challenges. A great and fun way to stay motivated, get to know people and to stay active with WikiTree, but the best is of course to see our World Tree growing and being improved!
As I am still breathing, being alive and well, there are no sources. I do have some originals like birth certificate and marriage certificate, but I'm keeping these for myself. All information provide here is based on my own knowledge and recollection.
