Both of her daughters' baptismal certificates state their mother's name as Friederike Juliane. Her daughter Marie Dorothea's marriage certificate states her mother's name as Juliane Friederike.

Note N332 :

Individuals : Tenckinck Johanna
In the notes on the death record found at Genlias, "mother's name not known" was written. This is odd since Johanna was only 30 years old when she died. According to the research done by Sue Adrianse at The Hague, Johanna's mother was Trijntje Heineman, as recorded here.

Individuals : Tenckinck Tettje
Searching for "Begins with 'Tet Ten' and 'Tet Tin' only produced her birth record. This was done in August 2008, when I found most of the other Tenckincks except Egbertus, born in 1815 (his marriage and death). Perhaps they both emigrated from The Netherlands.


Note N343 :

Individuals : Telting Paulina
According to her Archive death register, Paulina was a widow at the time of her death. This fits with Wybrandus' death nine years before. Her age at the time of her death was 71, which also corroborates her estimated birthdate on her marriage record.


Note N344 :

Individuals : Heineman Trijntje
On her daughter Gesina's marriage record from Genlias, Trijntje's last name has an "s" on the end.
A exhaustive search of Genlias with "Begins with" and "Tri" "Hei" produced no results. She had to have died between 1893 (birth of her last child) and 09 Aug 1830 (death of her husband Egbertus where he is described as a widower). Looking at Sue Adrianse's research on the Tenckincks is the death date of 97 Jul 1808. This has not been confirmed, but if it is true, then it is unlikely that her death date would be in Genlias at this time.


Note N345 :

Individuals : Tenckinck Wijbrandus Jacobus
The Dutch marriage register states that Wijbrandus was a doctor when he married Nieske, who was 14 years his junior. The register also said that he was the widower of Titia Adrikind, but while searching Wie,Was,, the premier Dutch vital statistics web site marriage records, I found that her surname was also spelled Titia Adriani(e). Generally speaking, there was no "correct" spelling of a person's name until the 1900s. People spelled phonetically, based upon what they heard. All spelling variations should be noted.

Note N366 :

Individuals : Harms Johann (896)
May 1, 2004--I received a pedigree researched for me by Robert Richter and Heiko Volker. Heiko's letter about Johann(Sr.), father of Johann(Jr.), born 1776 in Ringstedt, says "it does not look good for finding information about Johann Jr.'s father and mother because Johann's father(Johann Sr.) was born out of wedlock." Because Johann Sr.'s father was not married to Johann Sr.'s mother when Johann Sr. was born, the birth was not registered in the church in Ringstedt. Heiko goes on to say "I know from other cases that illigitimate children, in this case Johann Sr. were usually brought up with relatives in neighboring places." Therefore, Johann Sr.'s mother probably went to live in a neighboring town and have her child. I may ask Heiko to continue his Harms research in the towns neighboring Ringstedt. He agreed to do this for 42 Euros for the basics and then not charge anything, if his time spent searching was not fruitful.


Note N367 :

Individuals : Siegmund Catharine Maria (455)
According to the Luneberg Lutheran Church, Hanover, Germany, church records, Wilhelm and his wife Catharine Maria Siegmund were married AFTER having seven children together.

Note N377 :

Individuals : Zubrickas Grace
In Grace's obituary in Grand Rapids Press, 12 May 1972, p 7-D, "Balulis" is in parenthesis following her name "Grace Bailey". Balulis could be her maiden name, but because it is so much like Bailey, it is probably the native spelling of her married name. Her husband could have changed his name from Balulis to Bailey. Still, it could be Grace's maiden name. The guesstimate of date of birth is based upon her age of death in the obituary as 78. Her birthplace was not given.


Note N378 :

Individuals : Zubrickas Lena

Both John and Joseph were members of St. Peter and Paul Church on th NW side of Grand Rapids. Their records may shed some light.

Note N405 :

Individuals : Lasausky Warren Judson
Not quite sure of this entry for Warren. He is listed as a child of James J. Lasausky. However, he is listed as Warren Judson(not the same last name). Since Judson could be his middle name, I have listed him as James' son, but he could have the last name of Judson and then I don't know what the relationship would be. He is living in Canada at the time of James' death.
