Genealogical records

Well this is going to get very interesting!  One of my sisters is researching and has gone all the way back to the late 1700’s, into the Dutch genealogical data base and has traced our Volkema family and our Scheltema family.  So far she has found names and dates.  Way back then, of course they didn’t know about the heart defect of Long QT syndrome, but it is going to be a great history lesson!  I can’t wait to sit down with her and see what she has found!  Stay tuned for more information.

Do you have a story to tell of your family’s roots and origins?  How did you get the information?
