RE: [Friesland-genealogy] Wobbema
- Hello Walt,
In 1811, a Jakob Freerks took the name WOBBEMA as his family name, for
himself and his children:
Lysbet (aged) 17, Trijntje 15, Freerkjen 12, Pieter 8.
He was the only person to choose this name. Jakob lived in a village called
Cornjum, in the county of Leeuwarderadeel.
Hope this helps.

Might anyone know what community the name "Wobbema" originated in?
I've met a woman out here (western Missouri) whose maiden name
was "Wobbema". I suspect she is not originally from here because the
Netherlandic population is minimal and most have moved here from
other places like Iowa.
