Re: [GEN-BENELUX] Re: North American Dutch Genealogy

And vice versa, Richard. It will give some people in the Netherlands a chance to perhaps find descendants of their forebears. Research in North America is not as easy as it is in the Netherlands. Here in Ontario things before 1900 are sometimes very difficult to find. I have a family who married in 1868 and had 8 children, only one was registered and then not until he was 59 years of age.

Perhaps you can allow people in the Netherlands also to read messages and (hopefully) give some answers.
Good luck with the group, I hope it will work.

A group like this will depend on information given by either the films made by the mormons or from dutch researchers themselves. So I don't think that Tony will give you any problem in subscribing as a volunteer to answer. I do think that he means that it is *not* the purpose of this group to ask for research in the States, just for extra possibillities for some living in North America to research their European ancestors.
