Welcome ...

This site exists to make publicly available what historical information is available on the Family van Waterschoot.  It follows on from the original work of Jean (Johannes) van Waterschoot {1960-1996}, and that of many other contributors since.

But, this family has also experienced much change over the years. This includes name extension, contraction and spelling amendments.

Irrespective, it is highly interesting. 

Various family members have led interesting lives, some detail readily available and other aspects not.  As further information becomes available on certain family members, this will be made available through a link on the left (not yet present).

NEWS !!  The "double name". (Update 13-July-2009)

It was speculated by my cousin Jean that Judoca and her background may hold the key to the doublename.  I can neither confirm nor deny this ... but I have recently obtained further information on Judoca van de Graght (as recorded at Zeeuws Archief).

Where information has been obtained from Zeeuws, a reference appears after an event and can be viewed online by entering http://www.zeeuwengezocht.nl/SISIS.DLL/detail?fc=&c=<event#>
