I have been interested in Genealogy since about 1997 but don't spend as much time as I want to on research. My ancestors are entirely Dutch and all immigrated within 50 years of each other which actually makes everything very straight forward. My husband's family, on the other hand, is totally mixed and a lot more challenging.|
I am more than willing to transfer a memorial I created to a family member so please just use the edit tab on the memorial page to request the transfer. Do the same for additions or corrections since I can easily find the right page. Thank you!

Hi Beth did you know Melvin James Brandt jr?
I think so, I have some pics that have no names. Im going to get together with relatives that will know soon. Ive been trying to get ahold of one of my grandmothers pics of Koert's family. Grandma used to tell me they had a traveling store they used to sell things out of. It was a big wagon hauled by horses. Koert, Adrieanna, Cora and Jennie moved to CA because they did not like Michigan weather. Obbie stayed behind to continue the family business, Tiena married and stayed behind also. Ill send you those pics later today, maybe you will know who is who:)

All requests are completed. Again, I was working from a list. My maiden name is Dutch so I did question some of the spellings, but did not want to change without some proof. And, the name spelling on the list could have been correct at the time,or perhaps they could not read writing on the documents. I have had situations where the relatives actually spelled the names wrong, but however they want them is what matters. It can make it harder for those of us trying to find the names. Like the one you had ending in 'house', and I had it from the list as 'huis.' You may know that 'huis' means house.
It's hard to know what to do to help searchers sometimes.
I was working with a list from Ottawa County and the spelling that I placed on it is how they had it spelled. I wondered at the time, but I know that a lot of names were "Americanized". However, I chose to type it the way the list had it.
I have made the correction per your request.
I made the changes you requested, except that I seem to not be able to delete the extra flower. If you know how to do it, let me know, and I will do it. I looked all through the edits, and did not see one for the flowers.
Completed requested links for Minno and Agnes per request.
I have created the links between child, father and mother as per your request.

I've linked Albert to parents. A question, Ripon is in San Joaquin County. A hospital is located in Modesto,Stanislaus County, that is where most people pass on and are recorded even though they have lived in Ripon all their lives. We live in Ripon a block from the cemetery. Thank You for

Linked Alex to his mother Cynthia Lee Davis, as you've suggested. Thanks for your help!
