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 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.

Dankjewel Bea voor het aanpassen van de info van mijn grootouders.

Ik ben een absolute beginner als het op wiki-tree aan komt, heb door omstandigheden de afgelopen jaren niets aan de stamboom kunnen doen. Ik hoop dat ik nu weer wat tijd krijg om rond te neuzen en mijn bijdrage te leveren. Heel fijn om te weten dat er iemand is die je met raad en daad terzijde kan staan. Super Bea, hartelijk dank.

Hoi Bea. Wat fantastisch hoe snel je op mijn vragen reageert. Heldere, correcte en goed te begrijpen antwoorden. Voor mij ben je een geweldige steun bij het maken de familie stamboom. Je antwoorden zijn goed overdacht en stimuleren mij om te blijven nadenken over informaties over mensen of die echt kloppen. Bedankt voor al je energie en tijd die je geeft. Hartelijke groetjes, Roelof.

He Bea!! Geweldig dat je weer mee doet met de DRP Bevrijdingsdag challenge! Ik zie dat je de Challenge Deelnemer stikker NATUURLIJK als leider al toegevoed hebt aan je profiel. Misschien moeten we ooit nog es een "speciale" voor de 5 mei challenge toevoegen, of niet want anders verdrinken we in verschillende stikkers. Hier ons berichtje om anderen ook over te halen (doe m in het Engels in de hoop dat bezoekers hier denken: wow leuk!!!).

Hey Hello!

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 !

Hoi Bea,

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 ;-)
