Good morning Jan,
Thank you very much for the information you sent regarding Kristiaan Hofmans. I am anxious to see what I can find. We are planning on coming to the Netherlands next year to do more research. Do you know of a site that offers church directories and locations in Boekel and Volkel?
I do not have a birth record for Kristiaan either, but I do have a picture of his grave marker showing his birth and death dates. He is buried in Preble, Brown County, Wisconsin behind the Holy Marytrs Gorcum Church.
Are you by chance a member of the Hofmans' family?
Take care, and have a good day!
