My father (born in Bandung), grandfather (born in Soerabaja), great-grandfather(born in Grisee) and great-great-grandfather (born in ?) were born in Nederlands-IndiŽ (Indonesia). I am presently performing research in archives in the Netherlands and try to reconstruct the origins of our family. Sofar I have succeeded to go back until 26th November 1818, the day Dirk Wijnhard van Hutten was born and I am sure Dirk Wijnhard is my ancestor.
Also I was able to find another Van Hutten (Leendert G. van Hutten) from the same period, however, was unable yet to find relation with Dirk Wijnhard. I suspect that the parents or great-parents of Dirk Wijnhard sailed from the Netherlands with vessels from the VOC (="Vereenigde Oost Indische Comagnie") to the East. Proof of this assumption is, however, still lacking. Further research in Dutch archives is neccessary, but a busy job during the week, makes fast progress impossible. All details are in Dutch language. It is my intention to go back further in time, but it is getting harder to locate any further information, due to war period and archives which are still in Indonesia and probably not indexed and in bad shape, if accessible at all. However, research in Holland is not yet ready, and who knows what is still hidden here!
