Ditmar & Nieuwenhuizen families in South Holland
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 07:06 GMT (UK) »
Looking for anyone who might be connected to a bunch of families who lived mostly in the Hague, Utrecht and other areas of Zuid-Holland.

The earliest ancestor on the Ditmar side that I've been able to find is Johan Coenraad DITMAR (c1747-1831) who was married to Jannetje VAN DEN DOLLER (no dates known).

On the NIEUWENHUIZEN side the earliest is Willem NIEUWENHUIZEN and his wife Johanna WAGENAAR - no dates known but their son Willem Johannes NIEUWENHUIZEN was born in about 1790 and died before 1870.

The research is  for a descendant of Simon Petrus DITMAR (1873-1954) and Wilhelmina Christina NIEUWENHUIZEN (1885-1986). Their daughter came to Australia in 1953 and her children (my cousins) have no contact with any of this side of their family. Some of them are visiting Holland next month and would like to re-connect.

Other connected names include PENNEKAMP, PEERDEMAN, NEERVOORT and REIJMAN.

Thanks for reading this far! Cheers.

May I make a small correction?
The Hague (Den Haag, or 's-Gravenhage to give it's formal name) is indeed in the province of Zuid-Holland (South Holland).

However Utrecht is in the province of Utrecht ;D

I lived there for 16 years ;)

There is a website for Dutch BMD's:
www.wiewaswie.nl/en/ for the English language search page.
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

Thanks for your reply. Oops, sorry! My mistake - I have been to Holland but never lived there.

Most of the information I already have is from the Open Archieven and WieWasWie - truly fabulous websites both. But they only go so far in years and we were hoping to find some more recent connections. If we had more time I'd try writing to people of that name in the areas concerned, but my cousin leaves for Holland in about two weeks - this Rootschat chat is a last-ditch try...

Cheers
