Mina - Netherlands to Michigan, ca. 1895
My great grandparents, Reint and Jocomina (Mina) Schippers Haveman were married on 23 February 1899; their daughter Effie was my maternal grandmother.

We have copies of letter the Schippers wrote to their relatives in the Netherlands while they were aboard ship describing the trip.Some letters were written after they settled in the Kalamazoo area.
I will be glad to furnish more information for anyone on this line.I have been corresponding with a distant cousin in the Netherlands on these lines.
