Jan Hagen My real but not my biological father.
About 15 years ago or mabey a little longer I asked my mother to write down the family of our father we never had contact with, since they divorced. My mother had some CVA's already then, so I thought there would be some mistakes in what she wrote down. So far, all is correct what she wrote down then, besides some name spellings. That leaflet made me type several variations of my grandfather's name in my browser once or twice a year, and after about five years I found my grandfathers birth- and deathdate....... That s how this started.
Ancestors of Schellenberger-150
I'm 110% Dutch. Born German tho. Was two and half years old as our Dutch mum went back to the Netherlands. Became a Speech Therapist, and I love my work above anything. Married Henk Willem Spaargaren almost 25 years ago (january 1991]. Became mum of the most beautiful children Wim and Elsemieke. Living on a Palace of a Houseboat at the Lake of Aalsmeer we had build 10 years ago. What more is there to wish in this world. :D

Because of the good and bad history of the Dutch in Indonesia I am very interested in Indonesia.
Because I love challenges!
I am very interested in Pella, Iowa, USA, as I found a few of my anchestors joined the group that followed Hendrik Scholte to Iowa in 1847 as I was working on them here at WikiTree. Because of the profiles I had some great contact with persons also descendents (and even non-WikiTreeres] of the Dutch "landverhuizers" helping eachother on info and documents to complete profiles.
To clean up old GEDCom uploaded profiles and adding reliable sources. Or just make profiles better by adding reliable info.
My mother's mother line
Last Name at Birth
Have some roots there.
My husbands family
As I love to puzzle, to connect, help and clean up.
As Challenge Coodinator of the DRP I think our Liberty Challenge in May every year is the most important one. Adding resistance fighters that acted fearless during WW-II need to be added to WT! We are the first generation at The Netherlands that did not experience a war during their lives. I can only wish my children will not as well. Let us remember and pass on our freedom. And make it through we stay in peace.

Hi Astrid,

I’m working with Eowyn to check-in with everyone holding the Project Coordinator badge to make sure we have the most up-to-date information. As a Project Coordinator badge holder, please can you let me know which project(s) you are currently coordinating and if you have a specific role as coordinator in those projects?

Many thanks,

Hoi Vliegende Hollanders !

En jiehaa de Scan-aThon is begonnen en...voor het geval je dit nog niet gezien hebt is iets gewijzigd..we hoeven geen tracker te gebruiken zoals we gewend waren tijdens eerdere kunt een foto/scan/akte uploaden en gewoon doorgaan met de volgende, zonder eerst datgene wat je gedaan hebt te vermelden in de tracker, alle bijdragen worden nu automatisch bijgehouden !

Natuurlijk hebben we nog wel de Team voortgangs tracker waarin we elkaar kunnen volgen: Scan-a-Thon Team Progress Tracker

Heel veel plezier en succes !

Bea :)

Re: correction for Peter Goossens van Asselt. Couldn't get a link to work so took pictures of the information. My grandmother lived in Apeldoorn in 1887, but it seems that everyone else was from Elspeet. Except I think Maria might have been born in Ermelo.
