Dutch Origins, My Genealogical Writing Project
I am writing a genealogy of female line in Kramer/DeYoung/ Nauta/Dahlberg/Sankey family. So far I have completed the first chapter on Susan DeYoung (Sietske DeJong in Dutch). The chapter includes her parish Sint Jacobeparichie, Het Bilt, Friesland, Netherlands and her subsequent immigration and life in Racine, Racine County, WI. I am researching several books acquired from local universities to see if I am able to gain more insight into immigration from Friesland. I want to add insight to develop a sense of place but I don't want to be to wordy.
