Re: Dutch immigrants in Cleveland

In Reply to: Re: Dutch immigrants in Cleveland by Caren Hasselo of 2633

I have information on how one Hasselo family
got established in Cleveland. I can't say
whether or not there are others. For the
ones I have tracked it is a widow Gertrude
Hasselo who brought her children from the
Netherlands to Cleveland. My particular
interest stems from a daughter, Aaltje Hasselo, who married Martin Den Blaauwen
(Den Blaauwen gets Anglicized to Blue at
some point.) Another daughter, Christina
Hasselo, marries Constant Rooy who farmed
near Strongsville. Then there are three
sons, as I recall. I'll have to get back
to you with their names. Gertrude Hasselo,
in her old age, lived in the Martin Den Blaauwen household on the near west side
of Cleveland. If you know your Hasselos
back to 1935 the Cleveland city directories
are widely available on microfilm up to about
that date. I may have a listing of Hasselo
entries for that period somewhere. Of course
if your near Cleveland, the necrology index
at the Cleveland Public library is a great
resource. From that you can get references
to death notices and obits in the Cleveland
papers which, because they give surviving kin, should allow you to fill in lots of details.
