Hi - I have found a match for my grandfather's brother - in the USA! totally unexpected! How can I find out what type of record this was taken from and when? there is no date or phone number - only an address.
I AM LOOKING FOR MY OLDER SISTER THAT MY MOM SHIRLEY JANE MCALLISTER (ELLIS) HAD TO GIVE UP FOR ADOPTION.SHE WAS BORN IN SEPTEMBER OTHER THAT THAT I DO NOT REMEMBER THE YEAR OR DAY.MY MOM SAID SHE WENT TO NEW YORK TO BECOME A COURT REPORTER.THEN CAME BACK TO ORLANDO FLORIDA.IM NOT SURE IF SHE HAD HER THERE OR HERE.I KNOW @ THE TIME SHE WAS ENGAGED TO A MAN NAMED LEE WHO WAS IN THE NAVY (I BELIEVE)
Thought I'd be smart, not so sure I was. I started one tree for both sides of my family, at first it was simple now it seems overwhelming. Is there a way of moving an entire family to start another tree?
looking for family of Thomas danvers johnston before arriving in Australia. his birth at Calderwood Stromness Scotland around 1834, arrived in Australia 1858 he married Anne Roberts 1861 Westleyan church Rylstone NS W Australia Anne was Irish born?1841 they had 5 children.
While searching on the Internet for the familyname Veenhoff (family of mother's side) I stumbled upon a Veenhoff, named Jacob Veenhoff. He arrived on SS Colon from Cristobal, Canal Zone, Panama ont the 5th of January 1916. On arrival (1916) he is, according to the documents 46 yrs old. So he must have been born in 1869/1870, a precize date is not given in the documents. He is chief steward on the ship, sailing for Hamburg America Line. His final destination is Mrs. J Veenhof (wife), living at 168 West 98th Street in New York. Don'nt know her familyname.
My question for now is, whether this Jacob Veenhoff is a direct member of my Veenhoff-branche. He is born in Groningen, Netherlands. Searching regional archives produces a few Jacob Veenhoff's. One as son of Diederik Veenhoff (28 yrs) and Hinderkien Dilling, wife of Diederik, born May 4th 1871.
Does anyone know more on this Jacob Veenhoff ? I would appreciate any reactions and hope to solve another Veenhoff-puzzle.
Het bevestigt zo te zien wel de verhalen over zijn vertrek naar het buitenland. Chief steward en kelner liggen ook wel in het verlengde van elkaar. Hij lijkt later toch weer getrouwd te zijn met ene J. Veenhoff en hebben beiden in Amerika gewoond. Bizar om na een dag huwelijk je partner te verlaten overigens.
