I may be in the wrong place but I am determined to find what I am looking for.
I wonder if anyone could point me to the right direction...I am looking for my husband lost familly in Wageningen.His surname is Jordaan and his Mother surname was Van Silfhout.
Van Silfhout is a wellknown name in Wageningen, there used to be also 1 or 2 firms with that name - if you look in the Dutch phonebook now (www.detelefoongids.nl) you'll find 7 (private) entries in Wageningen alone, and many more in the region.
Jordaan I couldn't find any in Wageningen, but there are some in the region around Wageningen, for example in nearby Veenendaal. And it is a quite common name in and around Amsterdam. In Wageningen I did find Jordens, in case the surname has been changed a bit...
Hope it helps!
Any way, since I do not speak any dutch it is not easy for me.I did try the phone book but couldnot find anyone called Aantje Van Silfhout.
