I am so happy to have found this site. My Grandmother was Martha Halsema Vanderkolk. I have been trying to find out where in Holland her family comes from, so I can plan a trip there some day. Now I can find out information on the family history.

I have started researching my family name. The first steps were to travel back to Italy and speak to relatives to document dates, names and relationships. I then moved on to the internet research and came upon this site. It looks like I need to get in touch with organizations that can research church , military, census and marriage records. Any little bit of guidance will be greatly appreciated.

I have traced back to a great grandfather in the Garfagnana region of Tuscany. Near Fociandora.

Thank you,
Julian Lunardi

My name is Harold Weidman. My paternal g-mother was Estelle C. Leonardy, Born 28 Oct. 1871 Died 1 Jan. 1930. She was the dau of George Nicholas LEONARDY, born in St. Augustine, Fl 9 Sep 1846, the son of Roque Leonardy and Sabina Acosta. George married Ignatius Rogero around 1870 in St. Augustine, Fl. Estelle married James Phillip Weidman, my g-father, on 28 Oct. 1891. She had two children, James Alexander Weidman and Hortense Edna.

My name is Karen Cabrera. I'm writing in behalf of my dear friend Jose Manuel Diaz de Teran, a descendent from the Minorcans that labored the indigo fields in New Smyrna. Unfortunately, my friend lives in Spain, doesn't speak English, and it's difficult for him to further his search. I have done extensive research in the Historical Society of St. Augustine, St. Ambrose Church, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine (As well as many sources in Spain). What we are looking for is not there. I came across this incredible website and decided to ask for help.

My friend and I would like to find information regarding the following:

-the ancestors of Juana Estefanopoli, daughter of Cristobal Estefanopoli, who married Manuel Vazquez Lopez in St. Augustine on January 7, 1802. She may have been a member of the Orthodox church before her marriage.
-any children born of the abovementioned marriage
-the manner and/or cause of death of Jose Vazquez Lopez, Manuel's brother, who was in the army and died on September 25, 1796. We have been unable to locate his death record.

Any information on this regard would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely

Karen Cabrera

Great site with a lot of good information related to Minorcan heritage. For those interested in Minorcan heritage and history related to New Smyrna, Turnbull Colony and St. Augustine, FL. The University of Florida has posted an index of the East Florida Papers, (Spains official documentation of activities during their presence in Florida in the Second Spanish Period), which contain a lot of information related to the Minorcans of Florida.

Nice web site, a bit understated, but the antique documents are interesting. Several years ago, the web site included many photos. Are they gone because of the expense involved?

Having moved to Tennessee last spring I have lost contact with Joanne Fines in Manassas, Virginia. I have appreciated all the entries that she has made to the Basil Albert Halsema family history. I don't believe the last time that I was here that some of the news events was a part of the Halsema.org site. I really found this to be very interesting and even learned a few things about my father and the marriage of suprise of my parents. I am sharing this site with my daughter to introduce her to her long line of heritage and honor of knowing her family.
