About John and Bridget Dillon
G'day, My name is Anthony Vanderzweep and I'd like welcome all the visitors to this family website. I named this site to honor my ancestors John and Bridget Dillon who moved to Australia from Ireland in 1853.   I had the maybe naive idea of limiting the site to just John & Bridget's immediate early descendants, but after my  wife Jenny decided to add her Dutch family branch to the archives, I realized that this family tree project could  potentially become something bigger than anticipated. Well, then I thought why not let this tree grow naturally, to  find out how people from across the world from different cultures and ages are somehow related to each other. I have now included names and dates found in a research trail, of the Vanderzweep branch going back to 1680, even  before the name was first used. This was a time when the offsprings surname was formed after the fathers first name.  The earliest record was of a person named Pier Sybrens, whose fathers name was likely Sybren.

 Goeiedag, Mijn naam is Anthony van der Zweep, Ik zou iedereen willen verwelkomen op deze website. Ik heb deze site naar mijn voorouders John en Bridget Dillon genoemd, die naar Australie verhuisden in 1853. Ik had eerst het idee om deze site te limiteren tot alleen de Dillon famlie, maar toen mijn vrouw Jenny haar  Nederlandse familietak eraan toevoegde, begreep ik dat dit familie project een heel stuk groter zou worden dan ik eerst  dacht. En nu willen wij deze boom gewoon laten uitgroeien, om te zien hoe mensen van verschillende culturen en landen  familie zijn van elkaar.Ik heb nu namen en data toegevoegd die ik vond in verder onderzoek van de familie van der  Zweep, die terug gaat tot 1680, zelfs voordat de naam voor het eerst werd gebruikt. In die tijd was het de gewoonte dat  een achternaam gevormd werd van de vader's voornaam. De oudste persoon die ik vond heette Pier Sybrens, wiens vader  waarschijnlijk Sybren was.
