Like many others, I too have been tracing all my roots for many years. I started in the early 1970s while living in the USA. At that time I wrote to individual in Europe and used LDS films almost exclusively. In 1984 Agnes Dunselman published the book: "300 jaar Rijkelijkhuizen" and organized a reunion. My little bit of research was included also. After returning to the Netherlands Dec 1995 I picked up the research again because of Internet Once I got on line again I typed in "genealogy" one day and was amazed and what had transpired in a few years. Needless to say that I became possessed again with this passion for which there is no cure? I started frequenting Dutch archives, the Internet and BBS connections and have gained valuable leads and information from all sides. I followed a class "genealogy" and one in "Oud Schrift" from Agnes Dunselman in Haarlem. A great help.
The information on this page has many other sources besides just
my own research. The major contributors are: Agnes Dunselman; George
Reurings who has traced one major branch of the "Rijkelijkhuizen"
line which is not contained in the above mentioned book; Jan de Beus
(wonderful painter) for his De Beus research, Jan Vegers who is
responsible for the extensive "van der Lans" research; and Frans
Nelis who I will let represent the Nelis research done by various
family members. The Benelux Genealogy Internet list has brought me
in contact with people from whom I have received leads which brought
me further yet.
There are many more names in my database than those on this page, just send me an email with your questions, comments, corrections and suggestions.
