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 and Canada 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.

Here is a memorial for her 82757893. No info is added since it is on a large memorial for those without markers. Maybe this is her. Not sure when they immigrated.

Van Kley family plots

I found and added the Van Kley names you were searching for in Chicago's Mt. Greenwood cemetery.

Alice Kingma Van Kley
Anthony Van Kley
Kenneth Van Kley

They were very near the John Kingma family plots.
