I have family who originated from Friesland in the 1920s. They were originally from Tzummarum, and I can trace them to the late 1700s living in the municipality of Barradeel. Some of our family are planning a trip back to the Netherlands this spring and are wanting to know what they should see??
Some of the villages I have found the family in are: Tzummarum, Minnertsga, Sexbierum, and Firdgum. The surnames we have are van der Weg, de Haan, van der Ploeg, Hoekstra, Terpstra, Steinvoorn, just to name a few.
Thanks for any advice!!
