Thanks for replying... i'm not sure how to contact you, I hope this is ok.
I believe we have the same familytree. My grandma was Marie Pittens, one of Martins sisters in Holland. (born on 30-8-1917 died 8-2-1999) My grandmother visited Martin once in Canada and I remember seeing Martin in Holland. He visited my parents in St-Hubert.(We still have some fotographs.) Do you maybe have more information or photographs of Martin, his brothers and sisters and his parents(Wilhelmus Pittens & Hendrika Verhoeven) and grandparents (Antonius Pittens & Cornelia Wilms) and their parents (Matthias Pittens & Anna Maria Meulenmeesters)? This is all I know so far.
Maybe you also have questions?
Greetings from Holland, Jolanda
