Hello Dear Possible Relatives: I am responsible for puting our family tree together and would like to go further to the past information since the present is complete. You may see the final work (it is final but always under construction) at our site http://www.familiaschuur.hpg.ig.com.br/index.htmhttp://www.familiaschuur.hpg.ig.com.br/index.htm From the branch that came to Brazil, only Ida Schüür and Johannes Sinning returned to Germany.Ida was born in 1904 and died in 1968.She was one of the eight children of the couple Heinrich Menno Schüür (1877-1946) and Voskea Rewsaat. Heinrich Menno Schüür left three brothers and one sister in Germany, Niklas Julius Schüür (born 1885 and married to Johanna de Boer), Antje Claasen Schüür (married to Robert Spier in 1911) and two other brothers. Antje Claasen Schüür und Robert Spier had two children, Adalbert und Ida Spier in 1913 and 1915. Heinrich Menno Schüür's parents were Claas (or Klaas) Schüür (1843 - 1896) and Ida Hauke J. Ruiter (1844 - 1935). I have some more names going up to 1752 with family names Hinrichs, Janssen, Gronewold, Mennen, Saathof, Hinrichs, Lucas, Harms and Geeds.
As you can see I am eager to help and to get additional relyable information on the family.
One aspects that I would like toclarify is the difference between the names Schüür and Schuur.Are they the same?Can anybody inform me that?
Thank you and don't forget to see our site.It is written in Portugues and German and there is going to be a family reunion in September.
