Van Hees Family History
Welcome to my web site. The Van Hees family emigrated to the USA from the Netherlands in 1915, first to Chicago, then Platte SD, finally settling in Grand Haven, MI in 1925. Other surnames on my father's side: Dirkse, van den Bosch, Hilgers, van Amerongen, van Lopik. On my mother's side, the Kroeze family too emigrated from The Netherlands to Muskegon MI, marrying into American families from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New York, with ancestry ties to England, Scotland, Norway, and Germany. These surnames include Burge (Bjørge), Smith, Brown, Bealer.
