Thank you for the reply.
My husband was not born in the Netherlands. Mike's parents emigrated to Australia in 1958. My husband & his brother grew up with the knowledge that they did not have relatives beyond their grandparents and that his grandparent did not have any siblings, just as their parents were. However, we have already worked out their maternal grandfather had at least 6 brothers & sisters!
There are some photo albums however information on the people in the photos does not exist.
The information we have at this time is:
Father: Gerard Van Den Broek B 05 FEB 1932 Amsterdam D 02JUN 1993
Grandfather: Gerard Willem Van Den Broek B 03 OCT 1898 Leiden D?
Grandmother: Elisabeth De Vrij B? D?
Mother: Antonia Maria Koreman B 15 DEC 1935 Den Helder D 11 FEB 2013
Grandfather: Theodor Franz Koreman B 08 Jul 1900
Grandmother: Jocomina Willemse B 20 Dec 1902
Great Grandfather: Adrianus Franciscus Koreman B 31 Aug 1859 Oosterhout
Great Grandmother: Antonia Thiele B ? D ?
We started a family tree on Ancestry.com.au and have reached a point where we are unable to find information beyond Mike's great grandparents.
We would appreciate any guidance or advice you can provide.
