Hello everybody. For a long time I didn,t access this website. i see that there are some more messages. i think that Gerard kosterman is right with saying that the family Kosterman is from the small town of Wijk_bij_Duurstede in Holland. I am from there, and there are many Kostermans. About being jewish, i don't think so. I had an uncle, he passed away last year at the age of 83, adn he did a kind of research in the church books of Wijk_bij-Duurstede, and he found that the family Kosterman lived there since they were registrating the names, let's say since the 17th century.They were all catholic, For me it is very interesting to see that there are so many kostermans in the US, and i wish i had the opportunity to go there and visit them. I have some old pictures, from my grandfather and grandmother, and their children (my father and his siblings) My father, karel Kosterman, was born in 1914, and died in 2000. I have even a picture from 1900, on which you can see my grandmother (the mother of my father who's name is maria van Kleef)as a girl of 16 years old, with her mother, . is there a possiblity to put those pictures on this forum, does anybody knows how to do that?
