Surnames: Gerrits, Vesters, Pittens
I am looking for anyone who may be able to help us find our families. Martin Gerrits emigrated to Canada sometime in the late 1940's to early 1950's. He had several children: William, Gerald, Geraldine, John, Anthony and possibly more. He was married, although his wifes name is unknown to us. This is the only information we have other than he settled in Ontario and stayed there until his death, possibly in the late 1950's.
I am also looking for information on Anthony Vesters who was born in Uden on May 2, 1914. He married Theodora Pittens and had 9 children before emigrating to Canada in the late 1940's or early 1950's. Some of the children were Rica, Marie, Wilhelmina, Theodore, Martin, Hank. They had 11 children total and settled in Ontario. Anthony died in December 1992.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. My daughter has a school project which has sparked a real interest in our family tree.
Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for the offer of help. We did receive some help from another gentleman. We do not know the name of the parents of Theodora Pittens. We have not had much information given to us. Thank you for your kind offer.

We have no information to help find any more of our ancestors. We only have the names of the children of Theodora and Anthony. 9 were born in Holland in Uden. Unfortunately, we really have nothing to go on.
Thank you. Martin

Hi

I just thought I would let you know that Theadora passed away January 1st 2007. She was my Great Aunt. Her brother, Martin Pittens is my Grandpa. I am interested in the history of my grandparents families.

My grandmothers maiden name was Sanders. She has a brother still alive in ontario. Unfortunately she passed away 3 years ago.

If you would like any more info just let me know.

Hi there,

I'd like to let you know that I am also searching the family-tree. Martin (Martien as we say in Holland) is a brother of my grandmother (Maria Pittens). As far as I know there were 6 children. (Martien, Kee & Anna (twins!), Antonia, Theodora, Maria)Two of them (Martien and Theodora) went to Canada. I'm trying to find more information about their trip (when? what boat?) and their lives (children, work)and so on...

Maybe somebody can help me??

Groeten Jolanda
