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


At age sixteen I met my soulmate and we are happily married for 30 years now (2018) and blessed with five awesome children, two sons (age 29 and age 10), three daughters (age 28, 26 and 21) and one very cute granddaughter (age 1).

According the test, I'm 100% Europan: North- and West-European 55,8% and Scandinavian 44,2%

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 either, 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 grandmother Trijntje Nicolai's sister Grietje Nicolai was his aunt.

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.

Goedemorgen Bea,

Ben weer actief na een lange opstart. Nu bezig in mijn wikitree achtertuin.. zit nu met 2 issues bij Dutchroots in de de cat. 893 dit zijn VanLit-4 en Van Aalburg-1 over ontbrekend project nummer. heb het ooit geweten en ben het nu kwijt. vriendelijke groet Rob

posted by Rob van Zuilen
Welkom terug en fijn je te zien Rob ! Ik denk dat je de DB suggestie 893 bedoelt ? Dit betekend ws (uit mijn hoofd) dat het profiel wel een project template heeft maar dat het project account mist als co-manager ? Om die suggestie te corrigeren kun je:
  • (voor Pre-1811 profielen) kun je: toevoegen als co-manager, om dat te doen klik je in de groene balk bovenaan het profiel op privacy, dan scroll je naar beneden en plak of typ je dit ( ) in het in het vakje waar je iemand kunt toevoegen aan de trusted list, save en klik dan nog een keer op privacy en klik dan op: add manager
  • Voor jongere (na 1811) profielen of profielen die niet echt project hulp of PPP nodig hebben, kun je de project template eenvoudig veranderen in de sticker (project template altijd boven kopje Biography, project sticker altijd onder kopje Biography ) of door eventueel alleen een needs categorie.

Heb voor deze twee voor 1 de project template verandert in de sticker, en aan de ander het project account toegevoegd als co manager voor je, zodat je zelf ook twee voorbeelden hebt,

Liefs, Bea x

Moi Bea,

Heb een nieuw persoon aangemaakt en nu merk ik dat die al bestaat, nu zijn er dus twee dezelfden, toevallig is het eentje die jij ook aangemaakt hebt. Het gaat om Sijntko Derks-66 en Sijntko Derks 322. Hoe nu verder?

Groeten van Gesinus Knegt.

Hoi Gesinus,

Geen ramp hoor, dit gebeurt wel vaker omdat duplicaten of als je misschien eentje aanmaakt, niet altijd 'gezien' worden door het systeem (dat is ook 1 van de redenen waarom veel profielen (en vooral patroniemen) PPP hebben). Ik heb de duplicaten gemerged (samengevoegd) en je een berichtje gestuurd met wat meer uitleg, bij het Nederlands portaal hebben we een wat meer uitgebreide uitleg over het mergen, maar mocht je nog vragen hebben over mergen of iets anders, dan weet je ons wel te vinden he.

Je bent super goed bezig hoor, dus bedankt voor je enthousiasme en het toevoegen van al die tot nu toe nog missende profielen, het is geweldig als daardoor profielen die tot nu toe geen ouders hadden daardoor eindelijk verbonden kunnen worden met ouders/voorouders !

Wow Bea, superhartelijk bedankt voor de superstar badge! Ik zie dat je die niet regelmatig geeft, dus dit betekent echt wel wat!

Ik doe wat ik doe op Wikitree omdat ik het graag doe en omdat ik me mee verantwoordelijk voel voor de "missie" van WT, en niet zozeer voor de badges, maar het voelt natuurlijk wel heel goed en motiverend om te weten dat het geapprecieerd wordt, zeker door super-superstars zoals jij :)

Groetjes, Filip

Hi Melle, all the best for 2020 for you and your family too of course, replied to the wrong (older) post , so adding it here once more;) The results are in and uploaded here, so if it's correct you can find the links to/for the DNA test at my profile and the ones of my ancestors. According the test, I'm 100% Europan: North- and West-European 55,8% and Scandinavian 44,2% . Did you take a test as well or do you have plans to take one?

Hi Bea: Not sure why I am not on the list of users and it is also not tracking my scans. tv

Beste Bea, ik wens jou en Astrid een gelukkig, gezond, gezegend, voorspoedig jaar 2020! Helaas, om deel te nemen aan de Scan-a-thon, moet men oude fotos en dergelijk bezitten om in te scannen. Ik heb geen fotos, die boeiend waren voor de Nederlandse groep. Van mijn half-nederlandse broer z'n vader, familie en voorouders heb ik geen enkele foto. Ook van mijn overleden nederlandse vrienden heb ik geen fotos van hun ouders en voorvaderen. Aldus de oud-romeinen: Nemo dat quod non habet (dwz: Niemand geeft, wat-ie zelf niet heeft). Hopelijk zal het jullie wel slagen de nederlandse profiielen met veel mooie ouwe beelden te versieren! Groetjes uit Amsterdamistan, Albertus
I won't be able to this time, Bea. Bedankt voor de invite :) Happy New Year!

Maakt niet uit of je er elke dag bij bent. Elke bijdrage is welkom! Bovendien lijkt het ons gewoon geweldig om met elkaar al Wikitree-end het Nieuwe Jaar in te duiken!!! HIER vind je meer info. We wensen je alvast een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar! Bea, Margreet en Astrid

I am with you as ever. Just this/last weekend away, and taking care of the cleaning up for the next days. Organizing a Christmas Market for a local Aim.

I think we made around 5000 euro's so not so bad.

All left now, is one week at work, decorating our house, visiting our operated sister in Germany and do the shoppings. The rest of the time is WT's!! :D

Let's do it again!

Hoi Bea,

De PPP zit mij nog in de weg, kan jij de volgende kinderen toevoegen aan Heije Jans en vrouw Getruit Jans Molanus, Jan Heijes en Jan Heijes en Hadewieg Heijes en Wubbe Heijes Alvast bedankt,

Ben nu bezig met het uitzoeken van het gezin en de kinderen van Wibbe Heijs kan je voor mij hier de ppp ook af halen zodat ik de kinderen kan invoeren. De gezinnen in Onstwedde beginnen me steeds meer te interesseren.

groeten van Gesinus Knegt.

Thanks Bea, I appreciate the help. I'll fix it as soon as I go online again. Kind regards.

Hoi Bea,

Daar ben ik alweer, heb inmiddels een zoon Albert Heijes Wubs gemaakt, hij is een zoon van Heije Jans en van Geertruid Jans Molanus kan jij die verbinden? Mischien is het beter dat je mij (co)manager gaat maken zodat ik mijn voorouders zelf kan verbinden. Begin het steeds leuker en interessanter te vinden. Alvast bedankt, groeten van Gesinus.

posted by Gesinus Knegt
Hoi Bea, zou jij de PPP van Geertijn Abels er even af willen halen zodat Gesinus Knegt haar ouders kan toevoegen.

En zou jij de PPP van Willem (Heijs) Wubs er ook even af willen halen zodat Gesinus Knegt het tweede huwelijk met Aaltje Jans kan toevoegen.

Zie opmerking op Willem (Heijs) Wubs. en op Geertijn Abels.

Groetjes Enoch

Hoi Bea, hier ben ik weer zou jij ook de PPP van en van er even af wiilen halen zodat ze gemerced kunnen worden

PS ik dacht altijd dat je een hoger nummer altijd zonder probleem in een lager nummer kon mergen,

dus Harmens-303 in Harmens-126

en Jacobus -325 in Jacobus-219 Ik begrijp het dus niet, wat doe ik fout ?
