I will be contacting you in the near future to explore development options. I am looking to avoid cookie-cutter presentations.
For someone without much technical knowledge, it has been a process to explore the various options available to create a family website. I have set up a website using TNG (which took a while to identify and understand,) In conjunction with this journey, I also accessed all of their exemplar websites and came across yours. Quite impressive!
I admire your website, simply said - I am enthused by it. I am also working quite a few years on my genealogy though not with TNG but webtrees. Golf is my favourite sport, too, regardless of my age (8 years older than you).
I wish the best to you and your family.
Beautifully constructed family genealogy website. A person could spend hours examining your information.
After looking at your site I am just blown away. Best site that I have ever came across.
I am very encouraged about what my family site can be with a lot of work.
Best to you and your wife!
You have among the best web pages.
Great topic! keep up the good work!
My regards, Janet
Cees, I LOVE your site. Although I have been working on my genealogy for 30 years of my 56 I am just now trying to place this huge collection of data online. Your site is everything I wish for mine if I only had your talent! Your family must be so proud of your site accomplishments! My best to you and condolences on the loss of your parents.

Your site is very informative; I like the imaginative approach you have taken with it. I'm exploring different sites that have used the TNG software, in preparation for starting one of my own. Yours is truly an inspiration!The tradition you have started with your family ringing the bells on holidays is a great idea, too. We live in a much larger town, but it challenges me to start a tradition of some type with my family, as well. Thank you for telling us about yourself and your family.
You have a GREAT site! It's filled with incredible amounts of information. My Dutch ancestors had the surnames of Van Hoesen, Van Schaick, Hallenbeck & Van Noorstrant. They were in the US in the 1600's and I'm quite proud of my Dutch heritage. I also use TNG for my genealogy webpage and continue to look for new ideas. You've done an outstanding job.
Anthonia Smallegange married a John Baker (Jan Bakker?), also born in Zeeland (Noord-Brabant, Pay-Bas) in 1837. I have not been able to get any farther back on his family. Would you have any suggestions on locations to look? I checked the Zeeland genealogy site...there is a Jan Bekker that might fit, but the person connected with the information had never answered any requests. This is the only line of my lineage that is sparse.
Your website is fabulous. I live on Maryland's eastern shore so if you are ever here you and your wife have a place to stay. It's beautiful for cycling and kayaking.

WOW! Very Impressive Website! I just created our Family History website and was looking for some ideas and I believe I have found a gold mine!
Hi there, stumbled across your site I was born a Kloosterman, my mom was married to Peter Kloosterman in 1964, I was born and he disappeared...remember seeing him once when I was five years old. Maybe he is part of the Kloosterman family...I would really love to know who my father is. If you have any info I would welcome hearing back from you. Thank-you in advance. Hugs Carolynn
Have a good day!

Thanks for making this site and all the work you put in! I found out more about my genealogy. So interesting to me! Still trying to correct people over here on how to say our last name - although it isn't even mine anymore! I will always tell them the Dutch pronunciation. 🙂
What a Wonderful journey you have taken. Thank you so much for sharing your vision of a personal web page and how it can link your thoughts, feelings, experiences in such a moving and touching manner. We are all on our own jouney and Mine has been influenced by meeting you on the web. I am just beginning to find the time to begin my journey. You have set the standard very high.
Thanks for your genealogy website information. My family & historical research is currently on ancestry.com. I enjoy the digging or the research.

What an incredible achievement! Vising this site makes me feel as if I am poring through the pages of a great epic novel. Cees, I am truly happy that my grandchild will share your name.
Your site is tremendous! Deep, broad, attractive, and interesting, even if you're not into in genealogy.
Hi Cees. Your website is awesome, and thank you for sharing it. You have done a tremendous amount of work on this website, including the history and how it applies to your family. Great jog! My grandfather's name is Benne Kloosterman (who has past always) and my mom's name is Grietje and stills lives in Canada.
In Internet years, I am an old-timer. Been around a long time and have looked at a lot of web sites. Your site simply blows me away. Well done. That it is a labor of love shines through on every page. Truly impressive and thanks for sharing it.
This website has been a tremendous help in my genealogy research. So thorough and so interesting. Thank you.
