Surnames: ROELOFS, BUSKENS, BONGARTS
I am looking for anyone with the last name BUSKENS. They were, at one time, from Nijmegen, which I think is in the Gelderland area. I am very new at this genealogy stuff. John Henry BUSKENS married Marie Johanna ROELOFS, who was from a family of farmers living in Mook on the Maas River (just south of Nijmegen. They came to US around 1880-1890 and settled in Chicago. He was a bricklayer.

We have Mass cards and photos of many of the family from Holland: John A. BUSKENS, Willem BUSKENS (in a military uniform), Grada, Dina, Mary, Gerrit, Everdina.

Even the smallest bit of information would be appreciated.

Dear Charlotte, thank you so much for responding to my query. I've been getting frustrated with the BUSKENS name. I have so many photos from Nijmegen that are signed John A. Buskens ("the photographer"), I knew that the BUSKENS' must be somewhere. I am quite a novice at genealogy, so any information you have would be benenficial. What I am really trying to do is find out if there are surviving relatives and/or put names to faces in these unidentified photos.

I welcome any suggestions you may have. If I can provide you with information from my Mass cards, please let me know. They date back to the 1850s.

Regards,
Janet

Ria, I am still searching for information on ROELOFS, BUSKENS, BEEKMAN and BONGARTS from Mook & Nijmegen, Gelderland. To date I have no new information. I am at a complete dead-end. Anyone with any information on the BUSKENS from Nijmegen or ROELOFS from Mook (in the 1800 or 1900's), please let me know. I have many Mass cards and photographs of this family that I would be happy to share.

Ria, thank you for the information. Not only have have I never been out of the US, I am not very familiar with the provinces in the Netherlands. All of my information has come from Mass cards (which are written in Dutch), but they give the name of the person, sometimes their spouse, the birth and death date, place of birth and place of death. Nine of the cards that I have show the birthplace as Mook or Nijmegen. Of the others, one relative was born in Kervendonk one in Loenen and another in Valburg.

All of the BUSKENS relatives died in Nijmegen, the ROELOFS in Mook. I do not know if these place are located near Colderveen or Drenthe.

Thank you again for your help. Janet
