As you may read on the webpage Genealogy, family research is my most important hobby. For more than 40 years I have been married to Trudi Schut, and that is why I have been very interested in her ancestors. She is a descendant of Geertje Schut and Marten Orges, who have made paper in water mills in Beekbergen, the Netherlands, since the year 1601. They belonged to the first papermakers in the Netherlands. Geertjes children all used the surname Schut.
After the book about my mothers family (family book Pouw) I have been researching Trudi’s family. I intend to make a family book Schut that contents all descendants of Geertje Schut. I found most descendants up to 1920, except the branches in Germany and South Africa and America. So I have not yet completed the book. For the last century your help is very important. Your data, photo’s and family stories can’t be missed.
The further information on the family book provides you with answers to the questions you may have.
Do you have other questions, problems or comments? Please, mail me!
If you want to contribute to the book but you don’t know whether you are a descendant of Geertje, mail me the surname of your grandmother and most probably I can give a final answer.
You can fill in your data in a form and send it to me. Your form is sent to my inbox, and I will add the data to the book. In case anything is unclear or additional information is required I would like to have your email address to contact you. Please, do not forget to fill it in?
It will take some time before the family book can be printed. If you want to be kept informed of the progress of this project, please read this on my website. I will regularly update this webpage.
