Surnames: Van Cleemput
I am searching for a birth date, birth place, spouse children or any other information about my g g grandfather
August Van Cleemput. His son Fortune Van Cleemput b. 3 Sept. 1882 in Bois-de-Villiers, Namur, Belgium. Fortune and his wife Josephine Louise Marie Lamaitre b. 2 Dec 1877 emmigrated to Saskatchewan Canada with their two sons Marcel and George Ghislais Berthuin in 1926? from the port of Antwerp.
Family rumor has it that August changed his name to Van Cleemput from "Von Kleinput" or something similar, having come originally from Holland or more likely Germany. He and his brothers were reportedly large scale structural contractors building large buildings, bridges etc.
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
