Welcome to the website of the Kloosterman Genealogy
Our ancestors

This site is presented with the hopes of preserving the memories of our ancestors. 

Many we know about, and many we will never know, because of records being destroyed by fire, flood, and other disasters. 

They have made possible the way we live today. We owe them our gratitude and an interest in truly understanding their experiences.

Without them, where would I be? 

Who am I?

By asking yourself this question, you have started a journey. 

You will be scared and you will be excited.
You will be lonely and you will find friendship. 

You will have fun and you will be sad. 

This yourney has enriched my life with many relatives in Europe and America, new experiences, new friends and places I never knew before. 

So, join me and read on ……
