Thanks for adding Cornelis Leendert's story. I showed the news article to my mother this evening. She had never heard the story either, perhaps not surprising since my Opa was a young child at the time. What a terrible tragedy for the family.

Thank you, Jan! I don't read Dutch, so it's been difficult me to seek out records about my Birkhoff and van Brakel ancestors. I shared the birth announcement with my family on Facebook. They loved the peek into the past!

Greetings Jan, I am so thankful for all the amazing finds you have made in areas of my family tree I had long since given up on. I think in my own profile I wrote that any more discoveries would be unlikely, that I had gone about as far as I could go. You have led me in directions which have opened all sorts of research doorways. On a more personal level I was delighted by the passenger list you found in the 'Sumatra Post' mentioning my father in September 1938 when he was on his own in colonial Indonesia aged only 23 years. I appreciate the examples you gave me for the proper documentation of the ancestor profiles. I am definitely on a good learning curve. All the very best to you Jan! - Rove

Jan, enorm bedankt voor het bekijken van de gegevens. Ik begon zelf ook al steeds meer het idee te krijgen dat dit een en dezelfde vrouw was. Aangezien haar naam bij de geboorte van 2 kinderen overduidelijk was aangepast. Maar blijkbaar bij het opmaken van de aktes werd niet altijd even nauwkeurig gewerkt (of de waarheid verzwegen ;-)). Ik ga er nu gewoon met zekerheid vanuit dat deze twee vrouwen eigenlijk één zijn en alle gegevens omtrent haar turbulente leven verder in kaart brengen. Thanks again.

Hi Jan, What a big unexpected surprise to receive those details of the parentage of my ancestors Steven Rijsdam b 1805 and Geertje Stek from the marriage certificate of 1831. I thought I had reached a dead end. I love finding out about those historic little towns some of them come from. U heeft mij een groot plezier gedaan!!
