Find your Groningen roots
If your ancestors lived in Groningen, in the north of The Netherlands, I can show you around and take you to the places where your ancestors lived. As a northerner with a long history of living in the province of Groningen, I can help you find your way in this beautiful and quiet part of our country. As a preparation for the tour I can do some research on your ancestry, if provided with sufficient information.
Groningen is a good starting point but other starting points are possible, like Appingedam or even Leeuwarden or Assen.
This tour can be combine with other ancestry tours (Friesland, Drente) and any other tour I offer.
This tour can be combined with the Drenthe ancestry tour or with any other tour I offer. I am very flexible.
This tour is offered for anyone with ancestors from Groningen. I will take you to your roots and show you around the region.

Excellent experience! Jaap did an outstanding job of researching our family ancestry. He arranged for private tours of churches that our ancestors had attended and also researched the locations of homes and farms that had been in our family. I can't say enough about the thoroughness and diligence of his research work. We learned much more about our ancestry than I expected and the tour will be a life-long memory. This tour exceeded our expectations.
