Since a couple of months I'm researching my family tree, and now I have the same question you asked in 2004. Did you get an answer?
My great-great-great-great-grandfather was Simon van der Dijs (22oct1753/27apr1842) and had children with Catharina Margarheta van Jeruzalem (24apr1756/19sep1839).their son Gerard Mathias van der Dijs(16feb1798/19mrt1860) married Jannetje Craneveldt. Their son Willem Craneveldt van der Dijs (30jul1837/?) married Anna Sophia Catherina Bartels. Their son Gerard Mathias van der Dijs (10okt1868/05nov1918) married Isidora Sevilla Silvans. Their daughter Anna Sophia Catherina van der Dijs (14sep1895/25mrt1957) is my grandmother.
I thanj you for all the information you got on the Van der Dijs family.
