Dear very distant family,
As I am searching through my family I found this site.van britsom.com
Let me introduce myself. I am the daughter of Clasina Jansen and Hendrik Zwart. My mother is the daughter of Johanna Bax, who is the sister of Antonia who married a Van Britsom
My mother knows the name van Britsom but does not know where to put it in the family line. I was so surprised and shocked to see that my grandmother had so many sisters and one brother. Many died in the first year of their life.
The parents of my grandmother and of Antonia had 12 children before their first son was born...
I will show the picture of Antonia to my mother. Thank you for all your search work
kind regards,
Regina Haverkorn van Rijsewijk- Zwart
the Netherlands.
