I have compiled a genealogy of the GUNS family from Brabant, Belgium, several branches of which settled in the vicinity of Green Bay, Wisconsin. From that compilation I am issuing a publication covering the first 11 generations, about 1600 to about 1920. The work is 470 pages and in addition to the genealogical work contains a section on the history of Brabant, including local histories for several towns in the vicinity of Huldenberg, Belgium (turn of the century photos and population graphs are provided). The towns include: Huldenberg, Neerijse, Loonbeek, Sint-Agatha-Rode, Ottenburg, Oud-Heverlee and Sint-Joris-Weert. Maps of the towns are also provided.
The genealogy is written in MS Word, and is known to work with both Office 97 and Office XP. It should also work with the various versions in between those products.
In addition to the surname GUNS, the following surnames have significant presence, being present in at least 3 generations:
ARKENS, BAUWENS, DEBECKER, DEKELVER, DEKEYSER, DEMOULIN, DEVOLDER, DEWIT, D'HONDT, GILLEKENS, GOOSSENS, KRIEGELS, LAHAYE, LAUWENS, LEONARS (LEONARD), MARCHAL, MERTENS, PHILIPS, RENDERS, STERCKX, TASTENHOYE, VANDENDAEL, VANDENHEUVEL, VANDENLANGENBERG, VANDENPLAS, VANDERLINDEN, VANDERPERREN, VANDERZYPHEN, VAN PAY, VANPEE.
Other surnames having at least a 2 generations listing include;
ARNALSTEEN, BEERSAERTS, BLOOMER, BOMBAERTS, COOPMANS, GIJNENS, HERVENS, JORGE, MOMMAERTS, NEYS (NYS), RONSMANS, VANDERVEKEN, VANDEUREN, VANESCH, VERHEYDEN, VREBOSCH.
