Thank you very much for thy response Marianne
. It does help.
It seems everything I am dealing with lately involves a name change and a surname change.......Last name Stok to Stock, DE Haan to Haan..And the frust name ste all over the map.....Grtafus to Gary, etc...
Then when popke make family trees they naver make mention of the original Dutch name whiich is the crux of the whole thing and explains why they cant recover the names in Holland.
Hope you are doing well. Regards. Bib
