Ton Klaver's Family Histories
My friend, Ton Klaver has studied the Klaver family history and has
carried out extensive research into this family for many years.
Ton can trace his Klaver family origins back to the town of Vollenhove
in the province of Overijssel as far back as 1560. The line of
Klaver that Ton and your author descend from, arrived in Amsterdam
around 1770 and a substantial Klaver family grew and prospered there
for more than 200 years.
Ton and your author are related since we both share a common
ancestor - Jan Klaver who married Antonetta Johanna van de Bilt in
Amsterdam in 1852. Ton is a great-grandson
of Jan and Antonetta.and your author is a great-great-grandson of Jan and Antonetta.
Ton has written several family histories and these are presented
here. They are only in the Dutch language for now, but in
time, I will translate them into English.
