      Hi John, here's finally a few answers to your questions; I just came back from Amsterdam.

      Hein Jaarsma and Sjoukje Bajema did not live in Amsterdam; according to Hein's death-certificate they lived in Noordwolde, Hemeler Oldeferd. His father Wiebe Jaarsma came to Amsterdam to register his son's death: book 8, p. 92/ nr.4696.

      The number 4696 and year 1913 enabled me to find the cause of death and the address in the books of the Centraal Bureau voor Statistiek: 5185/493-494.
      Hein Jaarsma died of "pyelonephritis c. calculi" = a kidney disease, in the Ned. Herv. Diaconessen Inrichting (= a hospital) on Overtoom, Amsterdam.

      As for Gerlof Bajema, he and his wife and twindaughters Geppie and Magdalena born 1919 in Warga, moved from Amsterdam to Bussum in 1940.

      With kind regards from Delft,

      Annemarth Sterringa

      > Hein Jaarsma (b. 26 March 1880) married Sjoukje Klazes Bajema (b. 2 June 1881) who was the sister of Gerlof Bajema (b. 18 June 1895). Hein died on 4 August 1913 in Amsterdam, leaving his wife and possibly two living children. This was after Hein and Sjoukje had lost three children at birth in short time.
      > Information I have has Hein's daughter Hitje Jaarsma born 27 Nov 1905 in Kodum and death in 1975 in California, USA. I have no other information for her. I have no death record for Sjoukje or Gerlof at this time. I have no immigration records.
      > After Heins death in 1913 his brother in law, Gerlof, registered the motorcycle. I do not know who "Ymker de féarts" mentioned on Tresoar would be. I can not identify who is in the above two pictures with certainty. Hein was 33 when he died while Gerlof is 15 years younger.
      > I would like to know if there is a way of knowing the cause of death for Hein in 1913 and if there is a census placing Sjoukje and Gerlof in the same house after Hein's death and who might have immigrated and when to the USA.
