My main focus is my ascendancy chart (kwartierstaat in Dutch, Ahnentafel in German), an overview of as many ancestors as I can find, in as many lines as possible.
On my website, I have cut my kwartierstaat in several parts. When I started my website, four of my ancestors were still alive (my parents and both my grandmothers), and I did not want to publish anything about them on my website. So I split my kwartierstaat in four parts - one for each grandparent - and I replaced the names of my grandmothers with the names of their sisters, who were long deceased. Later, I split my paternal grandmother's chart in two, because her parents (and their ancestors) came from completely different parts of the country. So there are five parts now:
|Hendrik van Kampen||Geertje Wiesenekker||Albert Melessen|
|Th.J.A. Pardoen||C.J.M. Koopman||H.F. Coppens||J.P. Moerman|
|Hendrik van Kampen|
|Alida Melessen||Th.J.G.A. Pardoen|
kwartierstaat of her sister
I also research descendants of Lourens van Kampen and Neel de Vos bearing the name Van Kampen, and descendants of Paulus Pardoen (1747-1823) and Johanna Pietersen with the name Pardoen.
I have spent many hours in Dutch archives, especially the city archive of The Hague and the provincial archive for Noord-Holland in Haarlem, but also many other archives. I have also researched in Belgium, and will do research in Germany at some point, because some of my ancestors came from there.
