I have a lot of genealogy projects I need to work on and posts I want to write, but it’s a busy time of the year, and so I am going to use today’s post to make my list and to show you what will be coming up here as well (bolded will be blog posts):
- I have more results from Yvette Hoitink to share. One is about the Mulder family and how they made their living in Goes, the Netherlands. This also relates to me and an occupation I have had in my life. So have my parents and my grandparents and great-grandparents. Any guesses?
- Work on the occupations of my family in the Netherlands.
- Check into the location of Etaples.
- Work on my tree branch that connects to the Van Gessel family.
- Write a post about my (Klein) connections with the Van Gessel family.
- Update my tree with all the new information I have gotten from many sources.
- Go through new information from Grady.
- Write a post on the Flipse update and the DeSmits (one or two posts)
- I plan to reorganize the pages of this blog (not the posts, but the pages, which are tabbed at the top of the page). I want to organize pages by family branch: DeKorns, Zuidwegs, Mulders, etc.
- Brook Lodge
- Harold Remine
- Alice Leeuwenhoek Moerdyk
- Organize newspaper clippings and photos and eventually prepare posts
After I do all the above, there will be plenty more to do, including finding out more about some of these photos I have. Here is one of a boy in “Nymegen,” according to the name on the photo. W. Ivens is the photographer. But so many mysteries. Who is W. Ivens? When was the photograph taken? Is Nymegen the same city as Nijmegen? If so, it’s a city on the opposite (eastern) side of the Netherlands than my relatives came from. Nijmegen is almost to the German border. It’s on the Waal River, which is the main distributary branch of the Rhine River and flows through the Netherlands. Who is the boy? Why is he so far from Goes?
