I'm from the Netherlands, born and still living in Twente [1][2], close to the German border, in this and some surrounding area's a lot of people still speak 'Twents', a dialect also called 'Nedersaksisch' (Low Saxon)[3][4][5], so most people born in this area, if they were raised by parents still speaking this dialect, can easily communicate with each other, whether they are from Germany or from the Netherlands. It's also very handy for reading and understanding the 'ancient' manuscripts /archives, because In the means -Century, Low Saxon (Middle Low German ) was a very prominent language, which, among other things, served as the official language of the Hanseatic League. Unfortunately nowadays this dialect is seen as 'countrified' and children at school only learn Dutch and the dialect is increasingly disappearing

Maternal Ancestors

M My great great grand mother Mattje Martsen Scholte next to her house, her husband and probably her adult sons in front of it, this was a traditional so called 'Spitkeet'('Spit shack')[6] in Opende, Friesland. People had to build it in one day (24 h) and than they would be the rightful owners of that piece of Land and the house, the little shed probably was a 'hen house', because of the mostly large families and because they were not allowed to expand the house after it was build, people built 'hen houses', the only way to 'expand' and create more room for either themselves or some of the many children


And who doesn't ??! Our family, at some point, of course hit the 'Brick wall' , after many years finally and thanks Wiki tree (!) it finally was resolved and we got reconnected with a whole and for many years 'lost' (emigration USA) branche of our family. The new cousin Ronald from America who mailed me with 'just some questions' about some relatives, him standing at the other side of the same 'Brick wall', turned out to be a real kindred spirit and very active fellow genealogist, when we realized after some mailing and puzzling we really solved this huge Brick wall together and that we actually were cousins, well gues only fellow geneologists can understand how awesome this experience was for both of us solving this as direct descendants!

Brick wall breaktrough

My cousin for many years had been trying to find the answer why the family had chosen Scholte for last name , so he asked if maybe I had any ideas , I didn't, so I tried if I could find the answer for him ( myself) , and others of course who might also be curious about that, found, as he told me, the best answer for his question he had ever heard, so we both guess this is the most logical reason for the family name Scholte (why they took that for last name) interested ? see Sjoukje Geerts Scholte

'Interesting' and unexpected relatives

In my search for my husband and his family tree, I came across this family member, a 'famous' Dutch criminal Durk Tabak, how hilarious, cause at first , didn't know if and how he was related to my husband(!) we were making jokes that he probably was related to this criminal, my husband, always bragging about his family and their coat of arms, laughing and told me well I bet he's related to you somehow, since your family was poor and living in the area were mostly the poor and/or criminal lived. After more research I discovered there was no connection at all with my husband indeed and my husband was laughing his head of when he was right , this 'famous' criminal with no connection at all to my husband or his family , was...related to me ??! My great grandmothers Trijntje Nicolai sister Grietje Nicolai was his aunt.

The Dutch Roots Project is a project for WikiTreers interested in sourcing and improving the profiles of early Dutch people and their descendants. This project serves as a forum for researchers and descendants of all people born in the Netherlands, so all of you with Dutch Roots !

The oldest and largest project on WikiTree, EuroAristo's focus is on the noble families of Europe, from as far back as there are reliable records, to the present day.
The goal of this project is to work on ways to improve WikiTree as a global genealogy resource, and reach out to genealogists around the world.
This is a page to bring together Wikitreers with language skills (who are able and willing to volunteer some time and energy from time to time), with those Wikitreers who need assistance in interpreting a resource in a language other than their own.
As a free website, almost everything on WikiTree is done by volunteers. There are tens of thousands of active volunteers. A small group of WikiTree Leaders is at the heart of the volunteer community. Leaders have special powers and responsibilities.
This project focuses on New Netherland families who settled the area during Dutch rule. The period covered is through October 1674, but see the project page for more specific details on family connected before and after that time period.
To bring together WikiTreers who love to make profiles beautiful! We clean up messy biography sections and sources, and try to set standards for attractive, useful, and well-written biographies.

Ik was ff an gisteren met bloemen maar was niet thuis. Kwam aangelopen vanmorgen om te bedanken en om zijn ziekenhuis ervaringen te delen met veel humor. 72 en architect die onze ark getekend heeft. Vanmiddag open haardje aan voor het eerst en uitgebreid koken voor 4 (dochter en haar lief hier). Snel nog lekker vanaaf appelflappen van eigen appels gemaakt bij koffie en toen ..........Kids mijn koplamp ondertussen gemaakt- keek het nooit maar sinds afgelopen seizoen beetje verliefd op Boer zoekt vrouw LOL! En was het ook wel zat na 5 uur in de keuken! Pfff! Laatste tomaten uit onze kas tot soep met ballen getoverd. Hahahaha meer details??? Komende week gekke week met drie avonden vergaderingen, werken en komend weekend ergens verwend worden op de Veluwe. Dus waarschijnlijk nauwelijks van hulp at SaTh tot zondagavond.

Hoi Bea ik ben met profielen bezig, zonder profiel manager dus deze moeten dus geadopteerd worden het probleem is het volgende:

als ik ze adopteer dan kom ik boven mijn limiet van 2000 profielen uit, het zijn profielen waarvan hun ouders wel Dutch Roots hebben maar ze zijn zelf in Amerika geboren wie kan ik nu als profielmanager toevoegen, ik heb bij Arentina van der Veur Dutch Roots Project als profiel manager toegevoegd maar ik weet niet of dit wel goed is.

Groetjes Enoch

Hi Bea, is there any justification for keeping Jacob White (father of Ann Unknown, as the son of Thomas White? There don't seem to be any sources or information on either Jacob or his father's profile to suggest that he is a son. I am wondering if it would be appropriate to remove that relationship. Thanks

Hi Bea, Thank you for your edits on Edze Langeland, I wasn’t quite sure to do with his patronymic, that’s why I left it uncertain. I dont always have access to a laptop and added him by phone. Also still not understanding inline sources, so all your assistance was greatly appreciated!

Hi Bea, thanks for your work on Anne Unknown Robinson, and for adding the England Project account. We will be happy to look after her. I’ll liaise with William and assure him that he can discuss his research with the project, if he has any new information.

Hi Bea,

I have also included my wife's paternal ancestry on WikiTree under the family name, Vermeulen.

Trust all is well with you and your family!

Hoi Bea, Ik zie in de geboorteakte van Grietje (Jansen) Scholtens dat H.H. Hassebroek haar geboorte heeft aangegeven. Daar verklaarde hij dat Grietje zijn dochter is. Misschien moet de LNAB Hassebroek zijn. Zo niet, dan misschien Janssen (2xs), conform geboorteakte. Kan nog steeds niets over haar moeder Berendina Janssen /Jansen / Jansens vinden.

Liefs, Roelof.
