Surnames: Schierbeek / Van der Velden / Frieser

I am trying to find information about my g-g-grandparents:

Maria Sophia van der VELDEN

As far as I know they never left Holland but this side is such a mystery, all I know is that they were in Rotterdam when my great grandmother Johanna was born in or around 1902. Johanna left Holland after WW2 and went to Canada with her husband and two children.

Any information would be greatly appriciated,

I read your message. Before I send family- details(privacy) I like to learn your christian -name and family-name (was not in the massage)
I am sure I am family. My mother was a daughter of Gerrit en Maria and a sister of your grandmother.
You may e-mail me directly.
Greetings from Holland.
