About van der Weide Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
The majority of people in this tree are of Dutch origin.  The van der Weide side originated in the Bolsward Friesland area.  The Wiggemans family were mainly from Aalten and Winterswijk.. In more recent years many came from and some still live in Deventer, Overijssel.
Some originate from small villages in Germany.  These are the ancestors of Faye Murray.  
This is a continuous work in progress and research is being done and added from time to time.  Where possible, I've provided a copy of the actual document of the time period.  In some cases I have the information but not the document.  The information has nevertheless been verified.
Much work has been done by myself (Egbert Willem van der Weide).  But much has been added by many other genealogist amateurs.  In the Netherlands, all family birth, deaths, marriages and other records were documented from 1811 on.  This is when Napoleon occupied the Netherlands and decreed everyone needed to sign up for a surname.  Much information from before that time is documented by lists of fathers and mothers of people.  In earlier times information was collected by physically going to churches, graveyards and other sources.  This was done mostly in Friesland by one of my sources.
