Surnames: van BALLEGOIJEN, van der BERG, BLOM, de BRUIJN, de COCK, de FOCKERT, de JONGH, STERK, van ZANDWIJK, van ZEE

All surnames above from Herwijnen, Gelderland - some as early as 1600. Have at least 3 generations of each listed name.

Planning a trip to the Netherlands in April, 1999 - to enjoy tulips and do a little research. Would like to correspond with anyone who can give me some research tips for families in the area between Gorinchen and Tiel.

I'm looking for relatives in Holland.
Mainly my Father's parents and brother and sister.
Their names were Nicolaas de Wit born 6/1/1909 and Kentie Gysberta (de Wit) born 3/7/1909.
My Father's brother's name was Nicolaas and his sister was Adrie.
I'm not sure how to go about this search, so if you could offer some advice I would be very appreciative.

VOS family currently in Gelderland

This August, my wife and I will be spending a couple weeks in the Gelderland area of the Netherlands and in Westphalen area of Germany. We are hoping to make contact with VOS or EITING family members still living in the region that may be related to us.

During the mid 1700's and up until 1822, my EITING (EITINK) ancestors lived in the small village of Barlo, Westphalen, Germany (a few km northeast of Bocholt Germany, and very close to the Netherlands border). My great great grandfather Johann Wilhelm EITING and his first wife, Johanna Anna DÖINK, had a number of children there.

Johanna Anna died in 1822, and Johann Wilhelm moved across the border to Zieuwent Netherland (near the larger town of Lichtenvoorde)and married Theodora (also listed as Derksken or Johanna) VOS (sometimes spelled VOSS??). They had two sons, including my great grandfather, Antone Herman. Most or all of the children from both families emigrated to Boston in 1846, then on to Brown County Wisconsin in 1849.

In looking at catholic church and civil records from the region around Zieuwent, I know that the VOS family has deep roots in that area. I have not been able to trace my specific ancestors there though (except for Theodora VOS).

Just as an aside, we are aware of another EITING family from Bocholt Germany that emigrated to western Ohio and eastern Indiana around 1850. They are likely related to my EITING family, but we are not yet sure just how.

Greetings from Wisconsin, Andy and Mary Wegner, Winneconne

I assume that "LichtenVoorde" is in the Netherlands? Anyways i'm not too sure, but am checking it out. One thing that wooks well too, is to use your search engine and type in the name of the town,This will usually provide info and links to a map to show you where towns are situated, or their history and info.
