Van Tjoonk, Antinck en Bannink tot Dijkman, 600 jaar familiegeschiedenis.

In July 2020, I finished a family project and published a book called "Van Tjoonk, Antinck en Bannink tot Dijkman, 600 years of family history". My family on dad's side has gathered many documents and photographs over the years, which I thankfully used. Not only Dijkman was researched but also Van de Hel was included as they are an useparable part of our communal heritage.

I am proud to say that my sister Caro Dijkman took care of the layout in InDesign. (
