Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Have you come across a Beinze Cornelius Rienks (aka B.C. or benjamin cornelius) in your book? He emigrated from Het Bild, Friesland in 1853 and married Martha Vanderploeg, also of Friesland. They eventually settled in Dubuque County Iowa, where I found them in the 1870 census.
