I first met Henk when researching the Doddema name about 4-5 years ago. He had already done some great research and willingly passed along the information that he had put together. Shortly thereafter, DoddemaGen became a reality.
He does volunteer work in Africa. What exactly I’ll leave to him. Maybe he can write that in a post someday (hint, hint ).
All’s I know for certain is that I’m honored that he’s joined DoddemaGen. I respect the work that he’s already done and hopefully the work that will continue to be done for our ancestors. They’re the ones that this site is dedicated to, those that have done so much to bring us this far.
I invite all Doddema/Dodde’s to join in. Share your stories, both of now and “back then”. While there may be a language barrier between us, we are still family. I look forward to working with all of you.
