The goal of this project is to find a new home for the Anneke JANS and Everardus BOGARDUS Descendants Association

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Monte Horn.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Trying to find out if there is interest in using WikiTree for the new home of the Anneke JANS and Everardus BOGARDUS Descendants Association Currently, it looks like the existing Descendants Association is no longer be attended to. Raymona Bogardus has passed away and Mr. Bogardus, is now in his early 90s, and is in a nursing home.
  • Efforts are being made to contact his son and daughter to see what information they may have.
  • Need existing members to come forward with any information they may have.

A while back I was online trying to find anything I could on the Bogardus line and came across a website run by William and Raymona Bogardus. On their website they invited anyone who felt they were descendants (of Anneke JANS, via the children of her first husband, Roelof JANSEN; or from her second husband Everardus BOGARDUS) to come join their Descendants Association. There was no cost and the only criteria for membership was that you provide documentation (Pedigree Chart and/or Family Group Records) that reflected your known or suspected line of descent. The principal purpose of this informal organization was, “to keep alive the interest in our ancestors and to create a common bond of friendship among their descendants.” When I tried to send in my information, I found that Raymona had passed away and Mr. Bogardus, is now in his early 90s, and is in a nursing home. So far as I know, no one is active in the day to day administration of the website or in processing new members into the Anneke JANS and Everardus BOGARDUS Descendants Association. Efforts are currently underway to contact his son or daughter to find out what is going to happen to all of Mr. Bogardus’ many years of research, a second book he was working on, and the status of the Descendants Association. Apart from being in touch with those ongoing efforts, I was wondering if there is group of descendants of Anneke and her two husbands already on WikiTree or, if not, if there would be any interest in establishing one and how would one go about setting it up. I have only been a member of WikiTree for a few months and am not very experienced with all the processes of Wikitree but would be willing to help out and volunteer in this effort but I would need help and guidance in how to go about this. Thank you.
