Gysbert and Aartje(Vander Sanden) Van Veldhuizen left the Netherlands from Rotterdam on the SS Ryndam and arrived in the United States on February 8, 1908. Their children were: Bernardus, Geurt, Gysbertus, Hendrik, Jan, Johanna, Evert, Maaretje, and Petronella. Gysbert was born on October 9, 1862 and Aartje around 1869. Evert my grandfather was born on March 9, 1893. The ships manifest says they came from the area of Ede in the Netherlands. Does any one have any information about them prior to leaving the Netherlands? Does any one have any ideas on how to go about collecting information from the Netherlands? I'm looking for their parents and any other documentation that's available.
