Thank you so much for this wonderful website full of great information!! My great-grandfather was John Joseph Dauven who emigrated with his parents and sisters in 1878 - listed on your site's passenger lists. They were related to the Dohmens, Janssens, and Dirchs - some in Limburg, but most just across the border in Wehr and Susterseel. Like many Limburgers, they were devout Catholics. Father Ambrose Janssen was given land by the railroad company to build a Catholic Colony in Nebraska which is where most settled (St. Bernard). My great-grandfather later settled in Idaho and his daughter in Washington State. I live in Seattle - such a long way from Limburg!

I am the great great granddaughter of Caspar Janssen and Agnes Van Mulken - immigrants from Province Limburg. They settled in Carver, Minnesota and their daughter, Roza Janssen Roers, my great grandmother is buried in Guardian Angles Cemetery in Chaska, MN. I am searching for any relatives from the family of Leonard Dohmen who I believe is the father of my grandmother, Lizzie Roers.

Heel veel dank voor alle informatie en het geweldige boek "Landverhuizers uit de Westelijke Mijnstreek." Ik heb veel geleerd over mijn families Hamers en Zincken. Mijn oma Nelly Lemaire-Hamers had als kind het adres van haar Amerikaanse familie uit het hoofd geleerd en was er op latere leeftijd nog trots op, dat zij dit wist.

I am a descendent of Casper Janssen from Sittard, Province Limburg. He emigrated with his daughter, Rosa and his wife Agnes Mulken in 1865 to Chaska, Carver County Minnesota. I am looking for any relatives that may still be in Limburg.

I am a descendant of Johnannes Salden. Anna Salden was my great-grandmother. I'm just starting to do some geneology research, so what a treat it was to stumble upon your website via a Google search for Grevenbicht!!

Looking for parents of Franz Joseph Limburg born 1841 & Henry Frederich Limburg born 1850 in Nordkirchen, Coesfeld District, North Rhine-Westphalia. These bothers emigrated to Arkansas, US. about 1867. Any help will be awesome.

Hi Irma, I really enjoyed reading your website, especially the information on Limburg. It's great that this site is available in English as well as Dutch. Thanks, Tim

Dear Irma Lommen - Salden, you have been so kind in helping me find a lost ancestor that immigrated from Sweden to America 1893. We never knew what happened to him and if we possibly have any relatives 'over there'. I've done some research myself, also with the help of a professional. We came so far that we had a very possible 'hit'. The name changed slightly as they often do to better fit the american language. Still not easy, there were so many with the same name! And I needed that confirmation, that we were on the right track. Then you, Irma, turned up (through the FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MidwestGenealogyResearchCommunity/ ) and helped me find those documents I so well needed! You found a copy of a passport, which confirmed the address I had, gave some other precious private information and also a photo of him taken shortly before he died! Thats an amazing find to us!! He only has one grandchild still living, but now very sick...and I was happy to be able to show him a picture of his granddad who he'd never seen a picture of before. And soon he'll be able to see a second one of him! I am very happy for all this help. I felt tipsy like after 2 glasses of wine when I received the news, almost dizzy but very happy. This information will now be shared among all relatives here; great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. Now remains to find if there's any more family left after him, my great grandfather Johan August, in the US. **Thankyou so much Irma Lommen - Salden for all you help!**

Wat een interessante "hobby" Irma en geschiedkundig leerzaam! Misschien eens leuk voor een lezing en/of dia avond voor velen. Veel sukses wens ik je en misschien tot ziens. Jacques

Mooi, vooral de brieven in het oud Nederlands over het leven in Amerika.
