I can't believe all the good info pertaining to the Brusse side of my family. Many thanks for uncovering and deciphering some really old family oral history. Who knows what went on in Ruurlo after-all? There are many bastards out there with royal genes/or not. The resource you listed is invaluable for the other sides of my dutch heritage as well. Thank you so very much for taking time to assist me in my travels!
