Getting to Oldeboorn

by Nillab Online Now Oct 8, 2003 at 11:04 AM

I'll be in Amsterdam next week and think it would be great to find out where my ancestors are from. Unfortunately they live in Oldeboorn which seems near to impossible to get to. I see in the past someone mentioned getting a taxi after taking a bus, but is that really the only option? Unless I rent a car, which maybe I should just do? Thank you - Tennille

    Hey traveller! When you're in Holland try calling 0900-9292 its the phone number for Dutch public transport. You could also visit http://www.ns.nl the Dutch railway page and choose akkrum as your destination. So far I know Oldeboorn is near it. Unfortunately you have to get a cab. But maybe its better to rent a car. Then you can see some Dutch scenery as well. Next week weather forecast is somewhat sunny with 15C. Enjoy!

    sorry for twice the same message i thought i lost one. this is a genealogy link for the place ryksargyf.org/nl/onderzoek/s... i think this is the placename now Aldeboarn. maybe i can look for some links of your family if i have time and if it is posible. send me an email with with the name of your ancestors all what you know like birth, names...... if you want to. i did some research at the rijksarchief in leeuwarden for my family tree and some of my husbands.

    Renting a car is a good idea, but when the weather's nice I really recommend you to rent a bicycle at the Heereveen railway station. It's much cheaper than a car and it's not so far to Oldeboorn anyway.
