Yes, that capel exists: it is named "Veldkapelleke" or translated somewhat like "little chapel in the fields". And the 300 you mention did not all come from Doomkerke itself, but most came from the surrounding area (approx. 15 miles). For more info on Doomkerke go to http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomkerkehttp://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomkerke and ask yor browser to translate. Where did these people come from ? Well, here is a list: Have emigrated: from Torhout 134, from Zedelgem 12, Ruddervoorde 54, Aartrijke 20, Lichtervelde 70, Koekelare 71, Oostrozebeke 6, Handzame 37, Westrozebeke 6, Zarren 45, Ingelmunster 45, Meulebeke 135, Wingene 100, Ruiselede 80, Doomkerke 10 families with children, a yong family and 24 unmarried persons. Why that much from Doomkerke while itself counted only about 1000 inhabitants ? After all, living standards were about the same in the whole regions. Well, an answer can be found in the fact that there was a "travel agent" living there who was working for a ship line. At that time he earned about 30% of the cost of the overseas traffic (and built a nice mansion with it).
