Re: From the Netherlands?
My ancestors came to the America with
the spelling van der Heijden,not sure if
I put those capitals in then right spot,
I think the spelling might have been changed
at the time of naturalization to Vanderhyde.
I've had a heck of a time finding the former
spelling or this family on census records.
I do know that shortly after arriving in
America from Holland he settled in the Wakesha, WI
area where another family member had settled.
They eventually settling in Dodge County MN.
I do have the family information that
goes back to Holland.
I am not on my computer but if you can
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I think
I can access the info and e-mail it to you.
