A school project when I was young got me started with a simple family tree that my Grandma Vander Leest helped me with (especially the Medendorp side). I have continued working on it ever since!
Started the VanderLeest name study project.
Steve's middle name of Henry is after his paternal grandfather.

I was wondering if perhaps you would be interested to work on the Portal World-The Netherlands with Melissa and Bill and hopefully more members ? I was thinking maybe we can make it a sub Project of the Dutch Roots Project, where you all can add or work on more specific things related to the Netherlands you would like to see added there or work on.
If you are interested just add your name to the list and let me know, or you can of course contact Melissa or Bill directly.

One Name Study|name=Vander_Leest
or you could copy/paste it from https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Vander_Leest_Name_Study
If you wanted to rename your Name Study, create a new Space page with the styling you prefer & then merge the old into the new. This will break the redirects, but let me know when you finish the merge & I can redirect the redirects.
