Profiel afbeelding

My 5x great grandfather Joannes Wenting apparently was born in Elten, in the Groessen. Born sometime around 1750 and died in Duiven 1826. I have tried to find him but have been unable to locate where in this area to search for many months now.

I would appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance.

Yes, thank you. I have all this information already. I am trying to find his baptism so I can find his parents. I have found my 5x great Grandmother Westhoff family and All of Joanne’s Wenting and Joanna Westhoff children. But I can not find Joanne’s Wenting 1750 birth year or parents or witnessed to his baptism  in any records. 

But thank you again for sending the information you did.

Thank you for the sites to look at. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner to thank you but I was traveling. I will certainly look at this info that you helped to provide. Thank you very much. I sure hope this is what I am looking for. A bit concerned that the last name is so different from what my grandfathers was. Wenting to Willink? 


Cheers shirkey
