I am looking for our ancestors who migrated to the USA.The family Jabaaij, spelled also Jabaay, goes back to the year 1550. It is known somebody called Jabaaij and his cousin who was called Monster (Munster) migrated to Munster Indiana and that the town is called after the family Monster, they changed the name into Munster for obvious reasons.
I would like to get into contact with our american relatives.

I am responding to Robert Jabaay posting. I believe you are my cousin. My grandfather was named William Jabaay. My father is Earl Jabay (nee Jabaay) who is the one of the three sons of William and Jenny Jabaay. I believe you are the son of Stan and Cac Jabaay of Grand Rapids MI. I have one sister named Jane. I believe the last time I saw you was in 1971. My father is alive and living in New Jersey and may be able to help with more information.

Dear Ank,
You might be interested to know that Munster was the original postmaster for the town. He lived near the railroad tracks and the train would know to "drop off the mail near Munster". They were referring to the man but the name stuck and that's how the town was named. He is buried at the cemetery in Lansing, Illinois also.

Hi Robert,
Do you know when your grandfather William Jabaay was born? I had a great uncle named William that lived in Munster. He was born in 1903.
Look forward to hearing from you.
