    Maybe you can try the phonebook: www.telefoongids.nl This might sound a bit stupid...... but maybe you already have some names and by calling these people you might find somebody who is family and has the same ancestors. Oh the site is only in Dutch, but you only have to type NAAM=name and WOONPLAATS=city. Good luck!!

    Hi! Check out www.ellisisland.org The records contain ship logs, point of departure, etc... and date back to the 1880s. I found info about my Dutch relatives here. And it's free too. Hope this helps. Sam

    Hi Rosamond, like Waalewiener advised you also, try to get some more information. Perhaps family name of her husband, her and his date of birth, in case of .. date of death, etc etc All extra info can help. I live close to Den Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch) 20 min away from it. So if you can give me some more info I will try to find something at the Registry of Birth, Deaths and Marriages. Good luck ... :-) Xowe :-)

    There are also 246 people with the name Floor in the USA. The website'' Infospace '' I find the best to find people in & outside North America.Probably many more in Holland , you really need more info to make it work. I guess my name is easier to research 3 in Canada (me my son & daughter) about a dozen in the USA.
