Searching for relatives in Uithuizen, Groningen. My GGrandfather (son of Derk Berend Visser and Pieterke Werkman Visser) immigrated to Muskegon, MI, in 1881. His name was Berend Derk Visser - his wife, Trientje Hoveling Visser died aboard the ship giving birth (son died also). Berend (Barney) then took his less-than-2-yr-old son, Derk to Michigan and lived with relatives (Barney's brothers, Klaas (Nicholas) and Jan (John) had also immigrated, along with mother, Pieterke, whose husband, Derk, had died in Uithuizen). Pieterke also had 3 daughters who were married and stayed in Uithuizen (Aafke, who married Jan Ettema in 1878, Martje, who married Klaas Zwart in 1875, and Grietje, who married Luitje Bonnema in 1879). Is there anyone out there who knows anything about these families? We would so appreciate any information. Thank you.
