We further hope to reconstruct the different families and to find the surname origin of  each of them.   In addition to the classic paperwork research a genetic DNA Project has been started. DNA research  offers possibilities to establish family relationships where the paper trail stops. All (male) surname  bearers are invited to join into this fascinating new research programm.   Marnix Berkhoff - The Netherlands.
