Re: pronounciation of Roelfs
My family pronounciation sounds to me like ROL FS. Can not help you with Roelfsema, but I am looking for information about a SIMON ROELFS, B./YEAR 1796 in, possibly, East Freisland, Germany, he married a MARGARETHA CHRISTIAN EDE SMITH, children, Ede, Tido, Totje (married Gerd Menniga) and John.
Any info would be very welcome.
THANKS TO ALLROWLAND B. ROELFS
