In Reply to: Schoemaker USA Netherlands by Rev. dr. H. Schoemaker of 13

I live in Winnipeg Manitoba. I was born to Dina (Brinkman) and Willem Schoemaker, both of the Netherlands. They immigrated to Winnipeg in the early 50's and still have family in Holland. Schoemaker is not a common name in Canada. To the best of my knowledge, there are only three with the exact spelling and one is a sister of my father. The other lives somewhere in Alberta and we have not been able to establish a link. We are looking for information to assist us in completing a family tree. My father was born in Andyk (spelling?) in 1931. I am unable to get a hold of him at the moment to find the first name of his parents however, his mother was born in Germany (maiden name Nenhuis - not sure of spelling). Rev. dr. H. Schoemaker, do you know if there is a possibility of any relation between yourself and my father's side? I can provide more information once I am able to reach him (he lives in a province different then myself). I know my father has been trying to find information about his 'roots' however, it has been very limited this far. I am curious to know what your first initial stands for; my father has a younger brother, Hank, who currently resides in Holland. Please email me at the above noted address at your earliest convienience. Thank you.
