Dear Chris, I checked my data base and do not find your family names listed. However, if you need to go further with your search, you might try this approach. Contact "In the Footsteps Foundation", Fluitekamp 77 3828 WG Hoogland The Netherlands. I contacted this foundation in 1997, after hitting the brick wall for over 10 years. Within two months, I received a letter from a Mr. John Verdonk, the Secretary/genealogist along with a packet of detailed information on my family! Mr. Verdonk traveled 100 miles to conduct this search for me and told me that the reason I never found my family records, is because they were never microfilmed or indexed. They are now--thank heavens! I asked Mr. Verdonk what I owed him for this wonderful find and he answered, "nothing", that he is a "foundation", and he is paid from that. A donation is always welcome. So, there you have it, Chris. Give this address a try. Let me know the results--Sue P.S. Correspondence was in English!
