|My name is Leo Unlandt, a son of Jan Dirk Unlandt.
Since I became as a heir apparent of some interesting and very old family documents
as part of my late father's property, I really like to research the origin of my earliest
- Jan Dirk Unlandt was born October 17, 1909 in Amsterdam and died: March 26, 1984
in Nijmegen (Netherlands),married in 1945 with Agatha Suzanna Siemensma born December 1, 1914 in
Workum, Neth. and died: March 22, 1995 in Nijmegen, Neth..
- Son of Nicolaas Unlandt, born February 4, 1887 in Amsterdam and died: April 23, 1960
in 's Hertogenbosch, Neth., married in 1908 with Gertrudis Franciska Janssen born March 10, 1876
in Wanssum, Neth. and died: April 23, 1948 in Weert, Neth..
- Grandson of Jan Dirk Unlandt, born in Amsterdam 1851, married in 1879
with Elsje Ronke born August 3, 1854 in Amsterdam and died: August 3, 1934 in Amsterdam.
- Great-grandson of Johann Heinrich Unland, born in Rieste (Bramsche),
Germany in 1805, married in 1843 with Barendine Olthof born in Eibergen, Neth..
- Great-great-grandson of Bernhard Rudolph Unland and Margarethe Maria Gosker,
their domicile was Bramsche in Germany.
I'm looking for:
- more detailed information about the origin of the Unland family.
- At the same time my demand is: how and where is the name Unland originated?
- The family relation to unknown paronymous,using the similar surname.
The realization of an old family ambition which has started by my
grandfather and afterwards by my father.
