My family is from Nieuwstadt but my great grandmother is from Echt Netherlands. I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know which province it is in or where it is. I'm looking for Anna Welters who immigrated to Canada if anyone knows that name.

It is a bit north and west of Nieuwstadt, not really too far. I am actually doing most of my research now in Echt records. I have most of the Mormon microfilms for Echt on permanent loan

Thank You!
I have been searching for Anna Welters's parents.
I know Anna was from Echt Holland she was born 15 Aug 1878. She immigrated to Minnisota U.S.A. then to Saskatchewan Canada and died in Humbolt in 1948.
She was married to William Muyres Who is my great grandfather.
Just a few clues I hope will help.
I am realy grateful for your response and look forward to hearing from you again.

I neglected to ask you some time ago where your Muyres ancestors come from. Many of the Minnesota Muyres (also Muijres) are my relatives via our common Roufs ancestors at Nieuwstadt.

My Muyres (Muijres) anncestors come from Nieuwstadt I think as far back as there are records kept. Both the women's and men's families are from there. They went to Minnessotta, then went to Canada.
I wounder if you would be able to tell me any new info on the Roufs line. I'm working on a 15 generation pedigree chart and as far as the Roufs line goes I only have Anne Marie Roufs born 1769 in Nieuwstadt. Died Feb 10 1837. She is the first Roufs in my direct blood line and I would love to know who her anncestors were.

My ancestors also came from Nieuwstadt and Echt. I visited both places a couple of years ago.
Their names were Meuleners and Meuwissen, mostly,
