Welcome to my Wiki tree profile do you have questions or need help ? please leave a message or send a private message
I'm from the Netherlands, born and still living in Twente , 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), 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
|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') 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
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.

How do you pass on freedom?
The DRP organizes our Annual Liberation Day Challenge again. Please join us!
Challenges are mainly meant to get to know each other better and to have fun with each other.
Again this year, we try again to give great resistance heroes a nice profile on WT, because they deserve it, also to provide them with ancestors and we also try to connect them to "our" WT.
Would you like to help? You are very welcome !

Alles prima verlopen, was in twee en een half uur gebeurd en kon ik weer naar huis, in oogziekenhuis in Amsterdam. ben voorzichtig alweer een beetje bezig, hoop van het weekend, een beetje mee te doen, lijk op Bella Lugossi, de klassieke dracula, uit de dertiger jaren, met mijn bloed doorlopen ogen en rode oogranden ;-)

I have corrected 'Oswald Broster' who should be Osman Broster, as requested in your message to Bruce Deary, who I see is no longer active on the tree. I have data I would like to upload on Bruce's profile but cannot access it. Can you advise? Regards, Rod Gebhardt
