Apologies to Jeannette Bakker

It appears there has been a genealogy goof.  Most of the information on my site has been submitted to me by many others.  Unfortunately, I hadn’t grasped the intricacies of sources so I don’t know who provided the data.  The problem: my records say that Jeannette Bakker is dead.

Jeannette Bakker herself corrected this error by sending me an email.  I’m happy to say that she was polite about it.  I don’t know if I would have been.  I apologized profusely and if you’re looking at this Jeannette, again I apologize.

I extended this invitation to Jeannette just as I’m extending this to you: if you notice any errors on my site, please feel free to submit corrections. I would really appreciate it.  My goal is to have accurate and reliable information.

Found Nico Ros

This is another email that I received through the website.  DoddemaGen must be more popular than I thought!

With her permission, the email reads:

I am a grandson of Jantina Doddema (born: 2-11-1900). I can tell you that she was married with Roelof Ros. She died at the age of 73 on 27 april 1974. She is buried at the cemetary in Wildervank (the Netherlands). Her parents Steven Doddema and Aaltje Bosscher are also buried there.

I have a picture of around 1917 of them with their 5 daughters.I have several old pictures of mij great-grandparents and their daughters.

Greetings Nico Ros.

I’m really excited to hear that our family is looking for more information on one another.  Hopefully this site will become a focal point and a central repository of information, news and such for the Doddema’s as I envision.  I’m looking forward to the future of DoddemaGen!  Exciting times are ahead.

Welcome Nico.  We hope to hear more from you!
