Find your Frisian roots
If your ancestors come from the beautiful province of Friesland, in the north of The Netherlands, I can show you around and take you to the places where they once lived. As a born Frisian and native speaker of the Frisian language, I can help you find your way in this province. As a preparation of the tour I can do some research on your ancestry, if provided with sufficient information. I will provide you with a nice insight in history and culture, language, landscape and present day life in Friesland.
Leeuwarden is a good starting point but other starting points are possible, like Heerenveen, Sneek, Drachten or even Groningen.
This tour can be combined with other ancestry tours (Groningen, Drenthe) and with any other tour I offer.
This tour is meant for anyone with Frisian ancestry. I will take you to your roots and show you around the region, guided by your own family history. I will track down the places where your ancestors lived and create a customized itinerary on that information.

A Recent Review of this tour

He did so much research prior to our visit and stayed in contact right up to tour day. He was prompt in picking us up at our hotel, and had the day very well organized. He even arranged for us to meet and tour with an historian in the village where my grandfather lived. Jaap is a delightful and knowledgeable guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed our lengthy tour with him. He gave us hard copies of our genealogy information and emailed the files so we could share with family members. We highly recommend Jaap.
