I would like to Ask If there is a good Explanation with DocumentProof , on the Van der Straaten Family from Ceylon
If Coporal Engelbertus van der straaten was born in singen ,Baden(Germany)
The Emblemis not Dutch as we found out, then this Line comes from Germany, I have the Family emblem but am not sure which part of germany it drives, from ? Also On my Part I came across of a "von der stra -E -ten ,Family inthe Near of Hamburg area, Every thing can Happen under the SUN! this isnotto Say "TheVan der straatensare this Family ,but the names Does Ring Into theirs ?!!"
I was myself veryShocked Then Admused,AsLater on Iwas told "they " camefrom Gérmany , Itmade an impression on me. When Genealogy´s not known , I beat the Grass, You be surprise ?? at the Feedbacks !
This documentation does not take place in Singen ,as The Data were Destroyed (World War II ) thus making a New Centralcenter in Stuttgard, Germany It was told That I should look into the stuttgard Area. As the emblem should beAround this Aerea.
That is why I have to Hang on this family Emblenfor Another source,AsFamily documentation, (as in the old days)
Does any one know where to Ask In stuttgard ?
I am sure there must be some kind of heraldicDocumentation.? it seens there is a Famaily Link to the EarlyAncestorsbefore Engelbertus Van der straaten, A female Member with the name (von) - Hannah /Hannen / Hainen ?Can be All varitions German Origin. This was an Insider Van der straaten Tip.
This memberis a Sourceasa Link to the German highAstrocrats inGermany . Also the Colours are Pastel,Giving me a lateBarokeImpression, Veryundifinate, as Family Colours .(Hope Coporal Engelbertus did not go to War in them!sorry ,!)
(Well it is for me not personally Important (Royals here & there ) - but All Data helpsto form a Better Family Documentation . I Only want Propper Documentation done .)
Also I would like to ask onData on my Great grand Father , Edwin Arthur van der straaten, born in Ceylon born 27-Octember 1867 (who married, 2-7-1892 his first cousin Evagelin (Eva )VanDort.
His Parents are John Engelbert van der Straaten & Sarah Nancy Van Dort, (d/o of Johannas Vd & Margretta Protenella Kalenberg.) Ewin v der straaten ´s Grand mother is Agida Van Dort.
Edwin vander straatenwas a Locomotive Driver for the Malayan railways in 1900. Could be he was evenEarlierin Malaya.
Due to a picture of the Malayan Railways in 1893, where many of his family wereActive in the Raiways, Active work started in Malayan Railway some 5o Good Years before this Date ,Bringing ManyBurghers to Malaya.To be Active civil servants of the British Empire.
Could any One give me a tip , to where I could write to ask on him ,thanks, Or Does any One know When He died /was Buried ? in Malaya.
I have made a Documentation to prove an Errow (Writtenby Altendoft andvan der Wall )on
Johannas(Jocobus;Note there are a few, which started this Mistake)Van Dort
In the Van Dort & Van der straaten Genealogies it was done very Clever only to Mention Johannas Van Dort(And was Correct too. Complied by the same Gentelmen)
It is a mistake that Under the Kalenberg Genealogy see Margretta Pertronella Kalenberg married a Johannas Jocobus Van Dort , s/o of Johannas C Van Dort & Neydorff, (This is incorrect )
She married Johannas (? Jocobus ) son of Leonard Van dort & Frincina Perera..
Why I am Mixing the Van Dort & van der straaten Genealogy ? here is because My Line goes 4 generations ,Linking these names
Agida Van Dortis Daughter of Leonard Van dort & frincina Perera,(Agida VD married Pieter engelbert van der straaten)
Agida Van Dort ´s (Only ) brother is Johannas Van Dort
Johannas Van Dort´sDaughter, Sarah Nancy Van Dort married her 1st cousin John godfred Lewis (Ewdin ) van der straaten.( His Mother Agida Vd )
Sarah VD & John Godfred L(Ewin ) van der straaten ´s son Edwin Arthur van der straaten married his 1st Cousin Evagelin (Eva ) Van Dort (d/o Willem VanDort(ProctorGampola 1863) & Dorothea christinaBotejü.
Edwin VDS & Eva Van Dort Daughter Antonette Edith van der straaten , Married Aelain Van Dort. Thus Making Aelian Vd & EdithvdS, A variety of Connections .Between Themselves.
The 4 Non stop Union , of the Van Dort -van der Straaten. Helps ProveJohannas (J ? )VanDort , Istheson of frincina Perera & Leonard VanDort, As sure as I am sitting here. I Hope .
There was a mistake toLink him toNeydorff & Johannas cornelius Van Dort, Which is A complete Other Line, I hope Corrections will be made,.on the kalenberg genealogy , & this issiue Rest . Thanks for your Patience.Nina.Van Dort Pls Excuse the doubel Van dort my KeyBoard gotjamed.
