Herman van Bijl/Beil??
Trying to find if my gggg grandfather, Herman VanBeil (as I have it listed) really was VanBeil, or van Bijl?? The brick wall is really high!!I have him listed as being born in Amsterdam in 1799..don't have his wife's last name,. but her first name was Elizabeth (eng spelling), and they had a daughter (in 1820) named Teresa.
