Information on my Dutch heritage on my mother's side. The building of my database began with a 1978 publication by Leslie Smith Powell (my third cousin twice removed) entitled, "The Bush/Smith/Stavenger Connection." Working from her information, I expanded the tree by using several online sources, primarily AlleGroningers.nl. In addition, I have a book published in 1843 titled "Tafel der Afstammelingen van Jan Boijkema en Courtjen Rijpkes, in Leven Echtelieden, Landbouwers te Vierhuizen" by Jakob Pieters Buikema. Information gathered from user-submitted databases (ie., Ancestry.com) is only included if I have been able to verify the data from an independent source. Other individuals may be added to the tree if I have first-hand knowledge of their authenticity (ie., a living cousin testifying to the existence of other living relatives).
Individuals hail primarily from the Northern and Central regions of Groningen.

This database has virtually no "Sources" listed, but I have extensive URL documentation of individuals in the "Notes" section of the files. This is due to an error committed early on when using the interface in my primary genealogy program. After 6,000 sources were accidentally saved as "Notes" instead, I chose to continue the mistake for the sake of consistency.
I have divided my database into two categories for personal organization. Those individuals who are biologically related to me have the most extensive sourced documentation. Other families who have contributed to my tree by providing multiple spouses for my relatives may only be listed by name; however, as I have verified their existence through AlleGroningers.nl, searching the names in the online database will provide documentation for interested parties.
Some individuals are also listed as anonymous (denoted with "??") because I don't know their names but I know they exist. For example, my great7grandmother, Anje Reiners, was married twice. Proof of her identity at her second marriage is provided by the fact that she is listed as the widow of my great7grandfather. In order to link her descendant lines together, I had to create a parent family for her; however, as her birth record has yet to be found, I am unaware of her parents' names, so they are listed as "??" in this database.
