Hello,

As you can see, my name is Kurt Walmagh and as it happens i am also searching for my ancestors. It's correct that the name Walmagh is originally from the Haeren-Vechmaal area. I already reached the 17-th century (Pierre Walmac born in vechmaal in 1650). My direct ancestors are also Lambert Walmach and Anna Cox, married in 1824, owners of the mill of Haeren.

If you are interested to learn more about it, you can contact me at this E-mail : itabel.bvba@pandora.be

Best regards

Kurt Walmagh

Did your Walmach ancestors emigrate to the USA? I ran across a man with a similar name, from Belgium, living with my Croughs ancestors in 1880, Omaha, NE.
I believe the Croughs were from Vechmaal and Vliermaal (married in Lauw), Limburg, Belgium. All near Tongeren.
If interested, please reply.

Anyone interested in trying to find Belgian records online should check out arch.be; Now it is available in dutch and french, but he english version is not available yet.... but you can locate civil records and church records for a number of different locations. You can find some via people search, but you may be forced to look page by page through the digital records. One thing you need to do is to sign up... otherwise you can not see the digital images. It is free....

If you need to find dutch records try wiewaswie.com; I believe they now have info in English. but this site used to be genlias.com... it was easier to use back then.
