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.


I'm happily married for almost 30 years and we have five amazing children, two sons (age 29 and age 10), three daughters (age 28, 26 and 21) and one very cute granddaughter (age 1)

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.

Lots of thanks for cleaning up some of the mess that was created yesterday! It is a great relief to get some help there. We have hours of fun ahead of us, to tidy this up :-(

Hi, Bea. Why is Provoost-2 categorized "Dutch Roots PPP"? It looks like he was supposedly born and died in New Netherland. Do you think that category is still needed there?

Bea, bedankt voor de bron en 't bericht op het profiel van Menne Meijer. Het profiel van Frederika Meijer dat jij aangemaakt hebt, was een weeskind, dus ik heb het aangenomen. Ik weet niet of het echt je bedoeling was om haar profiel af te stoten, maar nu blijft het van mij! :)

Hallo Bea,

Nog bedankt voor je uitnodiging. Mijn familie komt uit Nederland, Belgische grensstreek en Duitse grensstreek. Ik ben nu druk mijn biografieën te voorzien van bronnen.

Moet ik nog iets doen om lid te zijn van de Nederlandse Roots Project? Van de Duitse afdeling heb ik nu de “German Roots Project Member Badge” ontvangen. Bestaat die ook van de Nederlandse Roots Project?

Groetjes, Richard
