Digital Afterlife

It may seem morbid, but in the event of my untimely demise I want to be sure that none of my hard work on WikiTree ends up being deleted. While I fully intend on being around to manage all my profiles for the next 80 years or so, in the event of my sudden death I hereby give permission for all of my private profiles to be transferred to any of the following slightly-active WikiTreers in my family, whether or not they are currently on the trusted lists:

  1. Philip Stoffels
  2. Gavin McCabe


Only the Trusted List can access the following:
  • B. W. J.'s formal name
  • e-mail address
  • images (10)
  • spouse's name and marriage information
For access to B. W. J. Molier's full information you must be on B. W. J.'s Trusted List. Please login.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with B. W. J. by comparing test results with other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with B. W. J.:

I'd never heard of you before B.J. but I see you added to my grandfather's profile a death date that definitely is not right. Valentin Brenk. I can't remember what year it was but I think maybe the 1980s or 1990s. He definitely did not make it to 101. I don't even know how to find out. There's so much about my ancestral history that I will never know because my parents are long dead, and those who would've known are also gone.
posted by Sarah Spitz
I'm sorry to hear that. The date of his birth was mentioned on the marriage record, as you can see in the Sources section. These are the details that can be found in the Dutch civil registers. The date of death was entered when the profile was created on December 31, 2020. You can check my changes on the page https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:NetworkFeed&who=Brenk-41

I just noticed you added a wife to one of the QUAX family. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I couldn't find a way to connect them and now they are.

Brilliant and well done

Hoi BWJ,

Thank you for participating in the Liberation Day Challenge. I believe I saw you helped connect a few profiles during the challenge. As a group we added close to 50 new profiles of service members. You've helped honor those who gave so much for freedom.

We hope to see you all back soon.

Thank you for adding my great-grandmother (Francina Hendrica van Santen) as a daughter of Johanna Sliep! I've done alot of work on her ancestry, but just haven't had a chance to add everyone yet. Are you related by chance or just working on these profiles to help out?

Kun je helpen twee NL notables met de big tree te verbinden? Het gaat om Veltman-203 die al een heleboel voorouders heeft maar dus nog geen verbinding met de hoofdboom. en Blaauw-248 die minder voorouders heeft omdat een heleboel takken de grens over gaan in Groningen en Drenthe.

Re your merge proposal Catherine Crapp (Arthur-2549), I agree that this is the same person, and needs to be merged. However due to the need to research other family members to update their profiles and add missing members, together with merging her father, I will not be actioning the merge immediately.

Hello Mr. Molier: After reading about your interests in the Wikitree family news I decided to reach out to you with a Dutch question from Canada. My ancestors (Mills) have been in Moncton, New Brunswick since 1784 when they were kicked out of the U.S. for remaining loyal to the British Crown. In the Canadian census documents, they identified themselves as "English". But in the 1901 census, for some reason, they self-identified as "Dutch." In your experience, have you ever come across this kind of thing before? (My great grandfather Amasa Miller Mills: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mills-4984). I do not really expect you to have an answer, but perhaps you have some ideas? Thanks. Jonathan
posted by Jonathan Mills
Hi Jonathan, I have not seen this before. However, when I saw an episode of the BBC-program "A house through time", there was a story about an English woman that married a German man in Newcastle during the 1910s. By marrying her nationality became German and in 1914 the great war began, she was an alien in her own hometown. Maybe this was the case with your g-grandmother?

Concerning https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Oorthuijs-1 and his brother Gerrit Oorthuis. Thank you for the link that they are brothers. Since I don't know anything about their parents (yet), I think I will look for a birth/marriage/death date first and then add them. If you have found any of these dates please feel free to either add them or send them to me.

Thanks for connecting that family. And yet another family who emigrated to the US Midwest. I wasn't even looking for problem in Nederland-United States profiles this time.

You are good at making connections and thought you might like this challenge - these unsourced, unlinked profiles look like probable children of the same parents.

Sorry for the late reaction. Here are the other sources I found concerning https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/De_Wit-905

The death notice of her mother in 1849 in Jabeek. This mentions a different writing form of her father's name as well as her mother's parents. https://www.openarch.nl/rhl:5434d99a-8db9-9566-a62e-5f2c41837fb7

Besides this, I sadly haven't found anything yet.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

One of my projects is looking at 19cen US Netherlands orphans, by creation date, to source as needed. I am not sure I will ever get out of Nov 2010. So many abandoned unsourced profiles, many in Little Chute! I just keep running into Little Chute but otherwise know nothing about the families. I think a lot of Catholic Dutch moved there, at least more than came to Iowa.

Sure, but I was lucky this time. I recognized Little Chute, Wisconsin as a place with a fair number of WikiTree profiles AND FamilySearch had details on the families so I kept poking around until I found another family on WikiTree

I think I have connected the family - https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Vanderheiden-56 to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Peters-9617 in 5 profiles.

Voorlopig nog bezig met een paar Zuid-Hollandse takken. Misschien volgende week weer verder in Limburg :-)
