Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Peter Hakze, residing in the city of Almere in the center of the Netherlands, 15 miles east of Amsterdam. Since about 1985 I'm investigating a.o. my mother's family Van der Tuin (= Of the Garden). In March/April 1893 Johannes van der Tuin and his wife Margje Groen (= Green) emigrated with their children from NL to South Dakota, Charles Mix County, Edgerton (or Overijssel), a settlement near Platte. Margje's parents and siblings Groen emigrated at the same time to the same place. I'm interested in all what happened there to them, so if you have some info for me which isn't already on my Rootsweb site, I would be very grateful.
Since a few years I'm also very interested in all other Dutch families that emigrated from the Netherlands to the USA and Canada incl. their descendants and I like very much to improve their FAG memorials with more info and photos, create new memorials for them and link them to their ancestors in the Netherlands.

re: John Groat
Hi Peter.

I have not done that because I have not obtained substantial proof that he is descended from Hugo de Groot. Many have followed that line but I'm still reviewing it. John Groat is my maternal grandmother's grandfather.

Their suggestion:
His father Simon wasn't born in 1799, but in 1756. I think you also might mention in his bio that he was a descendant of the world-famous Hugo de Groot (with some essential info about Hugo).
