Even very limited information can give a lead.... Surely you have more than just 2 last names!

Kind regards,

Thank you for your reply. Up until the last 6 hours we literally only had Van Den Broek & Koreman. We have now 2 others - Toun & Willemse. No or extremely limited details have been left with photos & verbally we had been consistently told there is no other family. Great desk of searching ahead if us!

To help with research we need first names and ages. Is your husband born in the Netherlands? In which year and in which place is he born? What is/are his first name(s)? Does he know the first name(s) of his father? When was his father born?

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.

Regards,

Sharyn Van Den Broek

May be a silly question, but in relation to the amazing information you have provided, where should I be looking to continue our quest for information on the rest of the families?

There are no silly questions, only questions.
For general research in the Netherlands we use http://wiewaswie.nl This site is still in beta form and records are still being added. After finding someone there I look for the gemeente where it happend and then I try to find the record on http://www.genver.nl The record usually gives the parents of the record involved. When too difficult ask a question in this message board about 1 person with as much information about the person that youy already have.
