January 2016, all pages refreshed with a hundreds of additions and corrections.


What will you find on this site?

On these pages you will find a part of the results of over 20 years of investigating the family relations of me and my wife. Besides genealogical information about my ancestors, I collected much data about the different Dutch families with the surnames Belgraver, Borgardijn, Schokker and Jetten, the names of our parents. I have also much information about related families. On this website I present a extract of the information available in my genealogical database. I have to apologize that the genealogical information is mainly in Dutch. Some special terms are translated below.

Many families lived longtimes in the municipality of Weststellingwerf in the province Friesland. I try to reconstruct families from there, especially in the Western part of the municiplaity. Insiders can find a lot of names from there in my namelist.

Do you want more information than you can find on this site? Send e-mail to piebe@ziggo.nl. If you have any additions or remarks, I would be very pleased to receive them by e-mail and make the necessary corrections.

Dates of birth and marriage of living persons are restricted to the year of birth or marriage because of privacy considerations. If you have objections on publication of data on living persons you can ask me to remove these.

Harvesting peat

Many of my wife's ancestors came originally from the northwestern part of the province of Overijssel. In the second half of the 18th century they emigrated to the province of Friesland. The essay Harvesting Peat Became a Way of Life gives a great description of this migration and the reasons why.
