Family Research

Ancestor's? We've gots LOTS of them! A pedigree is available in two formats: a basic pedigree / kwartierstaat report, or an interactive Ahnentafel Chart that I developed using JavaScript (in May 1996).

A complete database is being hosted at Rootsweb. Data about living individuals is suppressed.

Of course, the work is always on-going ...


Bax, zes eeuwen thuis in Leende en Leenderstrijp
In the fall of 1998, a book about the BAX family of Leende was published (I am a co-author). A 4-page flyer was printed to announce this event, and mailed to about 700 people! To see the flyer for yourself, I've scanned it: Page1 - Page2 - Page3 - Page4. Or read an English translation. Some updates to book from Eindhoven Dagblad.

De kroniek van het geslacht Backx (Bax, Bacx, Bakx en Baks)
Th. A. Boeree scheef (1943) dat de naam over geheel Nederland is verspreid, 'maar indien over volledige genealogische gegevens werd beschikt, zou blijken dat alle takken afkomstig waren uit Oost-Brabant'.
This book has been scanned and available on FamilySearch DGS007561874 Item 2 starting at image 162.
Selected pages from this book have been transcribed.
