Surnames: Faas, deBraal, Lourens
I am researching the following Zeeland ancestors: Albertus Faas, Dirk Faas, Martha deBraal (DeBraal), Tanneke Lourens. I have found no record of any siblings that immigrated to America at or around the same time that they did. (approx. 1857). Consequently, I have not been able to locate anyone else who is working with these names. If you are involved with research on any of these names, please let me know.
Thank you!

I'm also researching the Faas family in Zeeland and the US. My husband's ggrandmother was Janna Martina Faas (1862 - 1958) who emigrated as a widow to western Michigan in 1910 with her children.
I also have a Braal in another line: Janneke Braal (1739 - 1808). Both families lived in Biervliet and Schoondijke.

I have just started working on my moms family so I am very new at dealing with the Neatherlands so bare with me. My grandfather is Daniel FAAS and he came from Biervlielt in Zeeland. I know very little about Daniel except his mother was Jainka MICKELSON. My grandmother came from Schoondijke, Holland.Her name was Mary WISSE, she was born in 1880 and her father was Johannes (John) WISSIE her mother was Mary Van Vekson (Wissie). I have seen my grandmothers last name spelled both WISSIE and WISSE. If any of theses names rings a bell with anyone please let me know. Thank you. Happy hunting. Jan Carney

my Daniel FAAS was born in abt.1873 in Bierlielt Holland. He came to USA in abt 1889. There is some mystery surrounding grampa FAAS. His mothers name was Jainka MICKELSON (FAAS) and his father is unknown. This is about all I know of him. Jan

Do you have a time frame for your Daniel Faas? Our Faas ancestors also lived in the Biervliet/Schoondijke area in the early 19th century.

Here's an answer to your request. A part of the Faas family is ons my website
Click "Faas", and subsequently "Servaas Arijsse" (top page) and there you are. Those who emigrated are in red.
My site is still not finished and new pages with genealogies of other members of the large Faas family will be addded in the near future.
I would be very much pleased if you could add members from the USA , or improvements.

I might beable to help. I also had Daniel Faas as my grandfather, who came from Zeeland. I am the daughter of his youngest son, Daniel John Faas. I have been to that region of Holland and visited the villages you mentioned. Who is your mother? My father had five sisters and one brother, John Faas, Jeanette, Mary, Gertrude, Jenny, Sarah and Susie. I also have some information from all these people before they all died, so get back to me at:
