My most important hobby is genealogy (family research). For more than 30 years I have collected a lot of data, such as baptism, marriage and passing data, last wills, deeds of immovable properties and statements of succession. Also tax (impost) – and polder charges, holy cards, pictures and publications on family members. The families I am interested in are: Van der Meer, Pouw, Hamoen, Schut, Van Remmen and Meijer. About my mother’s family I published a wonderful family book in 2009. See the separate web page “Familieboek Pouw

In 2017 I published a book on all the descendants of Geertje Schut.  Read more about it…..?
