Great5: Baartscheer and Van Dijk


Johann Hermann “Jan Harmen" Baartscheer/Bartscher came from Wiedenbrück, Germany and was born about 1738. He was buried in Amsterdam on June 29th 1810. He was a cooper (barrel maker).

His intended marriage with Maria Geertruida van Dijk was on April 7th 1775. Maria Geertruida van Dijk was born in Venray, province of Limburg,  about 1745. I didn’t find her baptism there. She was buried on October 9th 1796 in Amsterdam.

I received a very generous letter with the following information from a Dutch person researching their own tree. Jeffrey Lieuwen

Limburg is a southeast mainland province bordering Germany and Belgium. Its capital Maastricht is a nice city, known recently for the European Treaty signed there. Limburg is one of the most interesting regions to visit. It has a varied landscape, with woods, big river – Maas, beautiful natural parks, very special in the Netherlands region of hills – Heuvelland, and several interesting small towns, castles, good museums not to mention wineries.
