My Muyres (Muijres) anncestors come from Nieuwstadt I think as far back as there are records kept. Both the women's and men's families are from there. They went to Minnessotta, then went to Canada.
I wounder if you would be able to tell me any new info on the Roufs line. I'm working on a 15 generation pedigree chart and as far as the Roufs line goes I only have Anne Marie Roufs born 1769 in Nieuwstadt. Died Feb 10 1837. She is the first Roufs in my direct blood line and I would love to know who her anncestors were.
