I am going to be visiting Friesland from the US and I am looking for relatives to meet. My grandfather, Gerhardus (George) Tjeerdsma, was born in Lytsewierrum (Lutkewierum)and came to the US in 1900. His brother, Minze, came the year before. They settled and raised families in Ilion, New York.
Please let me know if you are a current relative or know of someone in Friesland who is related.
