Good to see your website and the beautiful pictures. My great-great grandmother, Johanna (Snoek) Nelisse was born in Oud-Vossemeer in 1835 and came to the U.S. with her family in 1875. Her brother, Adriaan Snoek, later came to the U.S. as well. They were children of Jacobus and Jannetje (van Schetsen) Snoek. Our ancestors go back many generations on the Island of Tholen. There were also Boogert ancestors on the Nelisse side. It is my hope and dream, to someday visit Oud-Vossemeer. The Roosevelt connection is fascinating. Some of the Roosevelt family were apparently government officials in Oud-Vossemeer as well, since I have seen their signatures on village records while researching my own family. Keep up the good work!
