Re: [Friesland-genealogy] Re: Visser Family
Thank you for your suggestions on possibilities for Andrew Fisher. I will do the follow up on these leads. You can see that he provides a unique mystery.

The birth that I found in 1831 is definitely incorrect; I forgot about
the year 1839/1840.
I did found another possible hit. There are some clues that support it
(year, initials, name of mother) and other that don't (name, and name
of father), but perhaps it's worth investigating.
Kind: Aard Visser
Vader: Arend Visser
Moeder: Gerritje Schoon
