I live in Winnipeg Manitoba.I was born to Dina (Brinkman) and Willem Schoemaker, both of the Netherlands.They immigrated to Winnipeg in the early 50's and still have family in Holland.Schoemaker is not a common name in Canada. To the best of my knowledge, there are only three with the exact spelling and one is a sister of my father.The other lives somewhere in Alberta and we have not been able to establish a link.We are looking for information to assist us in completing a family tree.My father was born in Andyk (spelling?) in 1931.I am unable to get a hold of him at the moment to find the first name of his parents however, his mother was born in Germany (maiden name Nenhuis - not sure of spelling).Rev. dr. H. Schoemaker, do you know if there is a possibility of any relation between yourself and my father's side?I can provide more information once I am able to reach him (he lives in a province different then myself). I know my father has been trying to find information about his 'roots' however, it has been very limited this far.I am curious to know what your first initial stands for; my father has a younger brother, Hank, who currently resides in Holland.Please email me at the above noted address at your earliest convienience.Thank you.
