Beste Jack,

Manny names in the story of Jantien. Is a famalytree a option?

In the tekst about the heraldic shield is the eagle not for Heerema!
Others and also the Bolhuis famaly  use the eagle as 'eigenerfde'. I made a atachement. Uit de Nieuwe Groninger Enceclopedie over eigenerfde boeren"". They use 'de Friese halve adelaar'. Also a atachement about familiewapens (in 2 parts/pages). Do you know wich man used the Heraldic shield of Heerema/Ritzema?
Friesland, Groningen and Ost-Friesland ware in middelages and later, a part that was not in the might of the graven van Holland and feel free of the bischop van Utrecht en Munster.
Rechtspraak in de regio wisselde volgens een volgorde. Eigenerfde boeren deden om de beurt rechtspraak.

This is my first reaction. I will think more about the article.

Til next time
