Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in my family history since I was a teenager, but have only actively starting doing my own research in the last few years.

In my family, the names I am primarily researching include: Bailey, Beals, Brown, Doudican, Foley, Gerstenberger, Harmer, Hartman, and Joslin,

In my wife's family, the names I am primarily researching include: DeBoer, De Velder, Ligtenberg, Maas, Nydam, and Van Zee.

Please email me (include Find-a-Grave in the subject) with any corrections or additional information for entries I have made. I am happy to share any pictures or data I've gathered. My Yahoo email ID is "jgerstenberger" (just add "" to the ID).

RE: Arjaantje Sandifort DeBoer
That would be great, and I would appreciate it (and the headstone picture). Do you have her husband's memorial as well, or does it belong to someone else?

Arjaantje Sandifort DeBoer
I just transferred Arjaantje to Harrison Cemetery because I learned she was in the wrong cemetery. Now I see that you already have a memorial for her. Please look at the information under #133038847 and see if you would include in yours, since I need to deleted the memorial I made.

Find A Grave Memorial# 15090440
I can fill in a blank for you related to Find A Grave Memorial# 15090440 for Jogchum Jans Maas and Grietje Jaspers Visser.

Comments state: Married first Grietje Jaspers Visser in 1870 and father of ? and Jinke Maas.
Jinke is my great grandmother, Jennie Maas.

My grandmother's handwritten notes about her mother's family showed she had half brothers: John, Harry, and William; half sisters: Katie (Trijntje), Maggie (Grietche), Winnie (Wyniah, Annie (Antje) and Lizzie (Loltje), and step siblings, John and Anna Veenstra/Feenstra.
Everything you have for the find-a-grave memorials related to this family matches what I have in my Family Tree.

Jennie is buried with her husband Cornelius J Van Geest at Valley View Cemetery, in Sioux County, IA. Is there a way to link my grandmother's information to her father - Jogchum Jans Maas?

Thanks, Lee Julian

Hello Jeff,

Would it be possible to transfer responsibility for Dale Owen Brink, buried in the Corsica Cemetery to me? Dale was my uncle. I am working on providing accurate details for members of my mother's family.

Thank you,
Sharon DeBoer
Granddaughter of Harm Harmanus Brink, who was Dale Brink's father

Ruth Mary Gitchel Anderson
Buffalo County Historical Society in Kearney, Nebraska is currently trying to find a direct descendant of Ruth in order to update our author information and files. Would you know of a person (child, grandchild, great-grandchild) in this family we could contact? Corene Phillips, Board Member
