Subject: Re: Palmen, Brunssum 1826: Mine were "Polmans"
Author: JodiSweere

Classification: Query
Surnames:

My ancestors spelled their surname "Polman". They came from Arnhem, Gelderland. If you search the Gelders Archives, they are all listed as "Polman". Perhaps as I make my way further back, I will find a "Palman" connection.

Three of my grandfather's sisters (nee Sweere)married "Polmans", after they immigrated here in the first decade of the 1900's and settled near Butler, Ottertail County, Minnesota.
