Hi, I was skimming through some of the postings. This is my first time on here. My father's name is Visser and he is from north Holland, Molenend. I have been in contact with one of his very distant cousins who has done extensive research into the origin of the Visser name. Some of his earliest findings go back as far as 1612 in the villages of Tietjerk and Hardegarijp in north Holland.
Some of the names on the list include: Visser Jochems Jochums Gosses Klazes Pieters Claeses
My dad still has a 2 brothers and a number of nephews and neices in that area. One of the nephews still runs the family farm in Molenend.I'm curious of any conections.
