"C.W. Boogaart:You people in Holland must have become
quite stationary & unfamiliar with moving about frequently.
My families of Thompson & Shively have moved back & forth between the States of Illinois & Iowa SEVERAL TIMES.
My paternal grandparents moved about 4-5 times between
Illinois, Iowa, & Ohio from when they were married up until
my father was born.He was born in Davenport, Iowa,
His dad, my grandfather was born in Bagley, Iowa, my
dad's mother, my grandmother, was born in Averyville,
Peoria, Illinois, and I was born in Peoria, Illinois, but was raised across the Illinois River in East Peoria.
My daughters were born in Jacksonville, Illinois.My
wife is from the Philippines.I trust by this example
you can see the DISTANCE & FREQUENCY of movement.
As relates to your posting, I see no contradiction unless
you are taking what I wrote out of context.Just because
I found on the Internet that said ANNA MARGARIET ROOSEVELT
was born 1643 in Gelderland, Holland, does NOT mean our
ROOSEVELTS came from there as you apparently are interpreting.All it means is that they moved around
FREQUENTLY & ALOT.If you look closely I do qualify
"FOR A TIME in domicle" in said Dutch Province of GELDERLAND.All 3-families ROOSA-COURTRIGHT-ROOSEVELT have
a "FOR A TIME domicile" in GELDERLAND, which is a heavily
influenced by SPANISH Dutch Province and this is the
commonality shared by all three-lineages.What I wrote,
that which you transcribed, is self-explanitory.I don't
see how you get a discrepency.Your query, "which is it
now?Gelderland (Province), or Haarlem, Nord-Holland"
is mote & irrelevant.The ROOSEVELTS [ROSENVELTS] are
from NORTH HOLLAND.Just because ANNA MARGARIET was
born in Gelderland does NOT mean the family was from there--
ALL it means is they moved around ALOT/FREQUENTLY from
out of our near HAARLEM, NORTH HOLLAND, Holland-cradle.
I don't know why you can't see that point.
As to Schmaliz, pg. 25, and near by pages this section
of his treatise, he does make a valid point about the
first couple generations after arrival here in New Amsterdam
did marry into JEWISH-families.Also, in a short paragraph,
or two, he discusses the possibility that CLAES's wife,
JANNETJE SAMUELS-TOMAS, was descended from the MARRANO-family of CRESPO CORTES of MALLORCA, SPAIN, who changed
their name to TOMAS/THOMAS.As for the Roosevelts, he
carries on in the same vain as all the rest of the
"sancrosant" doctrine of Oud-Vossemeer, Tholen, Zeeland.
He too, ignores cousin FDR's 1938-statement to Virginia
Delgado stipulating that the American Roosevelts, per
family tradition, came from somewhere near HAARLEM,
NORTH HOLLAND, and that Tholen/Zeeland was a grand
publicity stunt.But, then again, Schmaliz may not
have been aware of this statement considering his work was publish in 1939.It is the CRESPO CORTES descent of
our ancestress JANNETJE SAMUELS-THOMAS that I utilized
Schmaliz as a source.Respectfully, Gregory Thompson,
a ROOSEVELT-descendant--and a ROOSA & COURTRIGHT/KORTRIGHT
descendant as well.All 3-lineages having claims to
SPANISH-ancestry & SAMUELS-TOMAS, as well.
