My first language is English. My father was her youngest son, Jan, and he immigrated to Canada in the 1960s. I can read and write only a very little bit of dutch.
The information about what happened with my Oma is a little bit uncertain in terms of dates and specifics but I know that she ended up living with Abel Dalmolen and Grietje Veringa in or around Groningen. I am not sure if she was officially adopted because she went by Willy Dalmolen but in all her official documentation (wedding and birth certificates) it still says Wilhemine Baujke Boomsma. If you look at their marriage certificate Abel Dalmolen and Piet Veringa were the witnesses at the wedding.
I have no idea what happened with the relationship with my Oma and Johanna and Waatze or whether they were in contact after the adoption. As far as I know Johanna was still in Germany and Waatze had moved on with a new wife. They are in the family tree but I never heard my Oma, dad or Uncles mention them.
Thank you for the information. If you are interested in more information about your great-grandfather's family, I can send you a genealogy of the Boomsma family. You can reach me directly at my private email address [e-mailadres verborgen] .
