Welcome to my blog

My name is Lisa and I have a Dutch father and an English mother. I have been researching my ancestors for about five years now, and on this fascinating journey I have collected interesting articles, personal papers, facts and insights about my ancestors. I thought it would be nice to share this with family members and other people that might also be interested.

My mission is to document the life of my direct ancestors, try to give them a face, if not with pictures then with articles about the places they lived, the jobs they did.

Next to stories about my ancestors I will also share my research adventures, post about sources I find, archives I visit, websites I like, the tools I use.

If you think we might have ancestors in common you will want to see my Family Tree where you will find the result of my research complete with sources and notes, documents and photographs. If we have an ancestor in common please drop me a line. I would love to compare notes.
