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 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.

Unknown burials and links
From the FAQs
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?
..........Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.

Notice the purpose of Find a Grave is to record final disposition (ie gravesite) not to record a death. Are there burial unknowns entered- yes, many. Do they fufill the purpose? No. My experience is that when the grave IS found and a cemetery search is done before creating a memorial, a previously entered burial unknown (and its links) will not be found. Eventually, someone will discover both memorials and report them to edit. Edit will automatically delete the burial unknown (and its links) in favor of the known burial even if it is newer. No notification will be sent to the memorial manager. Links and information will be lost.

Sorry for such a long response. I hope I have not offended you, I do appreciate the information you sent and have included it in the bio section of the memorial. When you do locate the cemetery, please let me know and I will gladly add
the links. Best wishes from a very cold and snowy Michigan, Judi

RE Mt Greenwood
Mt Greenwood does not have a computerized kiosk to look up burials. Each burial has to be manually looked up by the office clerk. So I am awaiting on the office to supply me the locations of the burials where photos have been requested.

Albert Dekker
Hi Peter,

I have transferred Albert to you. I did not create the memorial for his wife, so you will need to ask the person who created it for the transfer.

Have a beautiful day!

Cornelius Van Stright
I am the great granddaughter of Cornelius Van Stright, living in Houston TX right now. I was relooking at Jennie Schoon (Jane Van Stright)in my tree and found you were maintaining her Find a Grave. I would love it if you had more info concerning Cornelius and his wife Gertie Zyp regarding birth and parents and immigration records. My cousin has traced his birth back to Maastricht. He settled in Highland, IN. They had 9 children of whom my grandfather Gilbert was one. I was just on a river cruise through Germany & the Netherlands which has rekindled my desire to know more about my family.

Ewold Huizenga
Hi Peter,

I have transferred Ewold to you. There are 2 other Huizengas that I can transfer if you want, they are Johannes and Trijntje.

I don't have any Dutch relatives that I know about, I think those wooden shoes would be very uncomfortable!

Have a happy day!
