About me and the names researched

My name is Annemarie Kalishoek born in Rotterdam, Zuid Holland the Netherlands where most generations of the Kalishoek family were born. The first traceable Kalishoek family were found in 1630 Vlaardingen, Zuid Holland, The Netherlands, just a stone trow away from Rotterdam.

I married my lovely Irish husband and became also interested in Irish genealogy, a bit more complicated then the Dutch research. Mass exodus from Ireland during the great Irish famine made most of the Irish leave their country to settle else where in the world, therefore there is a lot of research to be done.

Family-trees so far imported on this site: Kalishoek, Luca, Healy

Work in progress: Spoeltman, Van Der Vos, De Koning, Dingley, Breen,

Special interest : Dutch East India Company ( VOC) [1]
