Surnames: de Wit, Gysberta
I'm trying to find relatives on my Father's side of the family.
His Father's name was Nicolaas de Wit born 6/1/1909 in Gorinchem.
His Mother's name was Kentie Gysberta born 3/7/1909 in Woudriechem(I know she is deceased).
His brother's name is Nicolaas and would be aged approximately 64 yrs.
His sister's name was Adrie and would be aged approximately 66 yrs.
My Father was seperated from his Family by the child protection people during the War.
My Father was born in Gouda on the 16/7/32.

Surnames: Van Ettinger, De Wit
I don't recognise the above names because I have extremely limited information on this family, but, if you have a male De Wit (Christian name unknown) who was born late 1937 or early 1938 in Rotterdam, Holland - father was Chris Van Ettinger and the mother was Anneke De Wit.
I believe his parents married and that his father went into either a work or concentration camp and as far as I know was not heard of again.
I don't know if his mother married again either.

He would probably go under Van Ettinger or De Wit and would be about 61 years of age.

Can you be of any assistance with regards to your family being related or knowing of them?

Thanks, and I hope I might hear from you.

Nicolaas de Wit died in 1996. He was a son of Nicolaas de Wit (born 1881) and Adriana Wilhelmina Barth (born 1883). Gijsberta Kentie was a daughter of Barend Kentie (born 1875) and Daatje Adriana van der Tak (born 1877). I know that because both couples were my greatgrandparents too. The family De Wit lost contact with your aunt and uncle, but before his death my father Barend Kentie located them. If you're still looking for them, send me you e-mail-adress.
