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 many years 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 November 2012 I'm also very interested in all "Dutch" families in Gallatin County in the southwestern part of Montana, just northwest of Yellowstone National Park, where they founded the Dutch settlement Holland, later on called Amsterdam-Churchill.
I'm also investigating Dutch emigrant families of FAG memorials in southern Cook County, Illinois, and in Lake County in utter northwest Indiana, and in Michigan.

Kalf/Kaluf family research
I have done extensive research on this family and provided suggestions to your memorials on the death dates of Pieter Kalf and Krina Breen. Krijna was the sister of my gr gr gr grandfather, Krijn (Kryn) Breen who settled in Michigan. Krijna died on Feb 7, 1914 in Highland, Lake County, Indiana. Here is a copy of Krijna's obituary that ran in the Lake County Times on Monday, February 9, 1914, page 1


Mrs. Corena Kaluf, one of Highland's early settlers and most respected citizens, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. M. Kikkert, Saturday evening at 8 o'clock following a lingering illness.

Funeral services will be held from Tuesday afternoon at 12 o'clock. The remains will then be taken to the Holland German church at Lansing where services will be held at 2 o'clock. Interment will be made at Lansing Cemetery.

Mrs. Kaluf was 84 years old and was well known and respected by everyone in Highland and vicinity. She is survived by two sons and four daughters.

His Find A Grave looks very nice. I added his picture, it' not a very good one,

Getting around USA archives and data bases is to frustrating for me. I guess I need a course on how to get around in the data base.

I had not gotten around to changing hid Find A Grave. I transferred Tunis and his wife to you,

Thanks for all that you have done. Jo

For Sjoukje Jongsma
I'm assuming you mean in the caption of the photos you uploaded ... I can't seem to update the photo caption ... they are in your name so I'm assuming you have to edit them.

Hi Shelly,

Please change "Hattum" in the caption to "Hantum". (Hattum is also the name of a place in another region of Nederland.)

You are very welcome. Glad I could help. Janet

I tried to e-mail you as you requested
I tried to e-mail a response to you but it bounced back to me as undeliverable twice. So ... I'm sending this to you via My e-mail address is See if you can get an e-mail to me and I'll respond from that point.


I aplologize!!!!! I keep responding via and not to your e-mail.

I'm so sorry I missed your note about transferring Pieter and Metja Jongsma ... I will transfer them in a few minutes.

Clarence had one child with his wife Alice ... Ronald Jongsma ... he is alive and has two sons and I believe one daughter. Clarence died at a young age from cancer. Yes, Pier (Peter) is my grandfather. My parents are living ... my grandparents were older parents having married each other in their 30s. My grandfather had been married before he married my grandmother and had two daughters with his first wife Marcile Havling. When we can get our e-mail working I'll e-mail you my parents' names rather than post them here for anyone to read :-)

I did come across a very nice man in Holland who offered his assistance in locating records for some of my Jongsma family ... I, in turn, helped him with some of his Jongsma family that came to America ... we have not yet connected our Jongsma lines. If it's okay with you I will e-mail what he sent me on the Jongsma family ... I will send it to your e-mail listed on Just let me know. My e-mail address is

RE: DePorto/Jongsma memorials

I'm happy you are happy about my additions to the two De Porto memorials. Nobody needs to ask me permission for the photos, which I "lended" too and are public, without copyrights (as far as I know).

A bit of a surprise to me that Peter Jongsma (1909-1979) is your grandfather and not Clarence. Your parents are still alive? How are they called?

Would you still answer to my request to transfer your great grantparents Pieter and Metje Verbeek Jongsma temporarely to me?

This evenening I found a scan of the authentic conscription in Dec. 1900 of skipper's hand Pieter Jongsma for the Dutch army (for 5 years of duty then) with his description (length, color hair, eyes, etc., etc.).

Please reply next times directly via
gr. Peter
