Re: Looking for KOOP Ancestors from Russia
I did a quick check on GRANDMA and can't see a connection between my Koops and your family. My distant relative immigrated in 1789. I believe your ancestor immigrated around 1819.The father of Isbrand was Jakob J. Koop born 1864 his wife Susanna Harder 1862. His father was Jacob Abraham Koop 1827. His father Abraham Andreas Koop about 1799. His father Andreas Koop around 1747. There is much information on the Harder family as well.
The Manitoba Mennonite Historical Society also has a great website with information.http://www.mmhs.org/http://www.mmhs.org/
Good luck with your research.
