Dear Jan, You seem to be one of my relatives. I was born in Ostfriesland. My ancestors of the Spieker-family used certain traditional names for their children:staas and Jan(male) and Bauke (female). They come from the Rhauderfehn_area. The above is not my e-mail address.Please write:Juergen Meyer,Kleine Kemnadenstrasse 19, 19370 Parchim (Germany).
