|I am doing research on the following surnames:Hoot, Gonyer, Russert, Ketelaar, and Besgen.The Hoot and Gonyer families were mainly from Wood County, Ohio.|
The Russert and Besgen families were originally from Germany
and the Ketelaars were originally from Holland.
All three of these families then settled in Illinois around the Chicago area.
Any information would be appreciated.I would also be willing to
share any information I have
