Researching Het Bildt families/& re Arlene DeBoer
As I am new to this group I have just spent an interesting
afternoon reading many,many of the more than a 1000 postings on this
site. (what else to do on a cold and dreary Sunday in Michigan??)
I am hoping someone can help me further my research about the
ancestors on my husband's maternal line. I believe all are found in
the Het Bildt area. I am searching for the following families prior

listing quite often recently--Arlene DeBoer. Greetings Arlene!
