I am trying to trace my fathers line back further from what I have and it's been a real challenge. I have a few names and dates but I am wondering if anyone can point me further.
My father came from Holland to Canada when he was 4.
His fathers name was Reinder de Vries and his mother Hendrika Bijsterveld.
His father and mother were Stoffel de Vries(or Stuffel) and Aagie de Jong (Eggie or Egie).
Aagie's father was Barend de Jong (b 10 Nov 1875) and her mom was Teuntje Brouwer (b 11 Sept 1879). Barend's father was Hendrik Arie de Jong born in 1842 and his mother was Aaltje Termaat born in 10 Mar 1843.
Hendrik's parents were Teunis de Jong and Neeltje Pesselse
Stoffels parents were Reinder de Vries and Cornelia Van de Wekken.
Cornelia's parents were Antonis Van de Wekken and Neeltje ByDeVaate.
Reinder's parents were Jan de Vries and Tona Cornelia Van Schelven. Jan's parents were Reynder de Vries (b 1777)and Aaltje Kruidhof.
Reynders dad was Gerrit Tjeerts.
I was wondering if anyone has any info on Hendrika's side and any more dates or info on tracing the de Vries side of the family.
