Welcome to DoddemaGen. For those that don’t know, Berend is the son of Wiert Doddema (brother of my grandfather, Tammo Doddema). Our online family continues to grow. Hopefully, all the Doddema’s will soon know of this site and work together to fill the gaps in our family history.
If anybody has any questions, please let me know by either emailing me using the contact form or doddemagen (at) gmail.
Just received this email from Kavan, Kara’s brother. I hope he doesn’t mind that I’ve taken the liberty of sharing his message:
Hey everybody — Most of you have heard the good news already, but for those who haven’t yet I apologize for the late notice. The exciting news is that Sarah is a good five months pregnant and we found out yesterday that she’s pregnant with a healthy, lovely little girl.
And although I can’t possibly top that news we have a couple more exciting family updates — First, Sarah will be very happy to complete her Masters in Library Science this May, just weeks before the baby’s June 1st due date. And second, this is my last week at Stateline.org and next week I will begin working for the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I will be a communications officer in the university’s public affairs office and also will begin working on my Masters degree in some yet-to-be-determined discipline probably involving public policy.
Best wishes to all of you for a happy New Year!
Kavan, Sarah and little baby PJ (Peterson-Johnson)
Congratulations, Kavan & Sarah. We look forward to hearing more from you in the next few months regarding this blessed event. Remember, Auntie Kara and Uncle B have lots of experience that you can rely on.
Most people who know me know that I love Star Trek. If you didn’t, now you do! I’ve been collecting the Hallmark ships for a few years now but have never added them to the tree…until now! Wal-Mart was having a sale on a pre-lit, 3 ft tree and I can’t resist a deal like that. So, true believers, here is what a Trek Christmas looks like:

The genealogy bug has bitten me again. I’ve spent the better part of the day updating the family tree database, modifying files and adding new Doddema’s and other family members to the mix. Loads of fun! I added probably about 50 individuals today with the help of a wonderful website: Genlias. I think I’ve mentioned it before and if I have…good for me. It’s amazing.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Continue reading
It’s that time again when snow falls, shoppers run you over with the carts/cars, and Santa Claus comes to town. He came this past weekend to our local Wal-Mart. Most of our kids didn’t have a problem with it except for Bridget, who refused to sit on his lap. So here’s some pictures of some of our kids. Enjoy.
