Just happened in here - saw another Monica on board. ;-)
My grandfather, Antone Van Berkel, came from Holland and settled in the Little Chute - then Appleton, area in the early 1900's.
He came with one brother, as far as I know - his name was Carl.
We also have relatives named Van der Velden.
Still don't know what area he came from - perhaps from Noord Brabant too.
Will appreciate any info you have on this - will share anything I find.
Hickinbotham, my paternal grandfather's name was easy and there is a whole website about this family - but just starting on Van Berkel.
