      Hi Sue:

      You should make use of the online search tools of the archives in
      Ljouwert: http://www.tresoar.nl/ The search tools are available in
      English although the records themselves are in Dutch. A good general
      website in English on Fryslan is at:
      http://www.drf.nl/business/home.htm

      Your ancestor's first name was Eve, not Ewe, and he appears to be
      from the village of Wierum in the 'grietenij' (like a county) of
      Westdongeradeel in north-east Fryslan. The following comprises Eve's
      family: parents' marriage, siblings and his own marriage. Good luck!

      From Tresoar:

      I live in the US and only speak and write english. My Grandmother
      was from the Netherlands. My pedigree stops in 1818 with Ewe Melles
      Elzinga. Where is the best place to get information for Wierum and
      Oenkerk Friesland.
