Cousin Eltje and Geesjen

I’m happy to say I met another Doddema. Eltje and his wife, Geesjen, is my 4th cousin once removed. I ran across him while googling Doddema. Although I’m still learning about him, it seems he’s a composer and has a few albums to his credit.
I’ve been able to add more information to the Doddema history which is always exciting. I love meeting new family members. Now I’m hoping I can get some more Dutch recipes.

Eltje Doddema and family

My great-grandfather was Elzo Doddema, he married Elizabeth Wolthof.

My grandfather was Eltje Doddema, born 25 June 1885 in Muntendam, he married on 16 november 1907 Orselina de Vries, born 1 oktober 1888 in Muntendam.

Their children are:

  • Elzo Doddema, born 9 oktober 1907 in Muntendam, died…., he married Biefke (Bosma?), they became 2 daughters, Metty and Linie (probably from Orselina), Linie was married to Bé Scholtens, and she died some years ago in Oude Pekela
  • Harm Doddema, born 9 september 1911 in Muntendam, died 5 February 1912
  • Elizabeth Doddema, born 14 november 1912 in Muntendam, died….., she married Berend Bruining, they became one daughter, Lina (probably Orselina)
  • Dietje Doddema, born 20 april 1915 in Muntendam, died 4 november 1915 in Muntendam

  • Eltje Doddema, born 9 december 1923 in Muntendam, died 28 February 1927 in Muntendam

Hoping to find death dates and places for those that aren’t listed as well as dates and places of marriage. I’ve tried using Genlias to no avail on this.
