I am looking for information on the vital statistics of my immigrant ancestors for the periods that they were in Suriname and also their earlier history from Amsterdam, Netherlands and before. I will greatly appreciate any assistance that you could give me about this.
I am certain of the information regarding my third great grandfather through immigrant documentation. The rest is history relayed to me by a former pen pal in Suriname.
My 3rd great Grandfather: Isaac Jacob Soesman was born in Paramaribo, Suriname (Dutch Guyana), South America July 2, 1817 and died September 28, 1892 in Boston, MA, USA.
My 4th great Grandfather: Jacob Isaac Soesman was born in Paramaribo, Suriname (Dutch Guyana), South America August 16, 1787.
My 5th great Grandfather: Isaac Jacobz Soesman was born in Paramaribo, Suriname (Dutch Guyana), South America 1763 and died there 1794.
My 6th great Grandfather: Jacob Soesman was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands and died in Paramaribo, Suriname November 1, 1790.

Thank you. I think that this is not my Jacob, as the Jacob in my tree was in Suriname and having children between 1758-1780. I believe that he may have had one child in Amsterdam named Benjamin Soesman, though.
I believe his wife to be named: Sara Emanuel Benjamins.
Thank you for your reply. I have looked at the link for Salomon Soesman Jr. Although this relationship is possible, I am not able to establish it. My relative that immigrated to Boston, came in1836 which seems to be well before Salomon established his business there. My Isaac Jacob did not seem to have a connection to an established trade in Boston as his occupations included: Cabinet Maker, Carriage Painter, Piano Forte Worker, Mariner, and Doctor.
