Welcome to my dutch heritage quest blog. Over the past 6 months I have been tracing my family roots on my father’s side. Both of his grandparents immigrated to Detroit, Michigan in 1890 from The Netherlands. But I knew little of his family other than his immediate family. Little by little I have been able to piece together a lot of information on my ancestors, both those who immigrated to the US and those who remained in The Netherlands.
My hope with this blog is to not just identify those family members, but to learn more of who they were, how they lived, maybe even why they immigrated to the US. I hope you will join me in sharing those memories.
Yours truly, Lynda Reyst Klema
