Family Ties

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.

In December 2023, the second family history book saw the light after more than five years of research. It deals with the family on the part of my grandmother Heintje Garssen.

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