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 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: Dina Decker 124416651
That sounds good Peter. I was not trying to say you made a duplicate but I was searching around and happened upon her "other" Find A Grave. I am glad we found it because I was wondering where she was buried. Thanks again for the help

Jacob Temple
I have transferred the above Find A Grave to you.

I have a question....I found my great uncle George Decker that was never put on the family with his brother my grandfather John (Jan) Decker. Can you please look into his life and see if you can locate information regarding him? I am not sure why I never transferred his Find A Grave to you unless there was no information located regarding him. If you locate any information please let me know and I will gladly transfer his Find A Grave to you for the input.

Thank you

Schwanekamp Family
I'm wondering if you are related to the Schwanekamp Family. My great grandfather was John Herman Schwanekamp, son of John (Johann) Schwanekamp and and Johanna ? , born 1846 on the Atlantic Ocean while the family was on its way to the U.S.. I see you have some Schwanekamps in your memeorials. I'm just trying to verify John Herman's parents and grandparents names and how can I be sure?

Claus Decker
I found a Claus Decker today, however the dates/spouse/etc do not match those of the one you requested, and I was surprised as the one I found is not listed in the online cemetery listing. Not sure if this Claus or his relatives that I documented fit into your line or not, but I will keep looking for the "real" Claus.

Gertrude (DECKER) Temple
Hello my Friend.....It is me again. I was wondering if you were able to find out any information on Gertrude Decker (my grandfatherís youngest sister). John Decker is my grandfather. Gertrude was born in the Netherlands also on August 25, 1907. She married Jacob Hitta Temple. Gertrude passed on July 28, 1988 in Fulton, Illinois (Whiteside County).

I have been struggling with Ancestry and Find A Grave but I really am trying to get back into the saddle, as they say.

How was your Christmas? I am sorry that I havenít been in touch but I am glad that I found my way back

Be hearing from you soon I hope.
