I was born Brenda Kay VanDam, in Kalamazoo, MI, in 1947. I was adopted raised in FL. My gparents were Dorothy (b.1905) Elton Harold Van Patten (twin) his parents were Louie Fredrick Van Patten(adopted/emigrated)from the Netherlands. Because of being adopted I'am having difficulty finding links beyond this. If you have anything that would help, I would greatly appreciate it.
