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 "Dutch" families that emigrated from the Netherlands to the USA 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.

Aire's son, William was married to Jim's 1st cousin 3X removed, Adrijanna Anneke VanDrunen. It's been hot here. I have been working on my side but am now back to Jim's.

Happy Hunting, Jo

You're welcome, Peter. I'm glad you were able to use the picture for Ella as well.

By the way, Congratulations on the Netherlands win against Brazil today.

Hi Peter
In terms of the grave entries I have done over the years, a lot of times I would just pass a cemetery, stop and just photograph all of it to make sure they were available online for anyone to see.

I am not Dutch in any way, shape or form I just like to help others and belonging to F.A.G. has been wonderful and helped me do just that. I don't take many pictures anymore since the local cemeteries are well photographed but I love to manage my family entries moreso than anything now.

That's why I do what I do :)

Hiya... Her dated were updated and partial info was copied to her profile from her first husband. It's too bad that his final resting place is unknown. I also gave you credit for the info. Thanks!

Thanks very much for copying all the info from "my" Find A Grave-memorial, which I meanwhile deleted.

Would you still answer my question if you are related to Isaac Sliter?
