1. Genealogy: Extensive
The Extensive Genealogy is the basis;
the below Overview has been added to help find the position of a family member within the Genealogy.
The Extensive Genealogy can be found in the Menu under:
Genealogy Extensive; from there pick a Branch or sub-Branch.
2. Genealogy: Overview
The Overview can be opened from the Menu under: Genealogy Overview.
The Overview has been placed to facilitate the viewing of connections within the Genealogy.
This blue symbol appears before each member of the family. Click on it to switch to the overview page. Go back by clicking the name of a person on the overview pagina.
Now first read (at right) how you can surf within the Genealogy.
After that you can use the instructions, below, if you don’t know where to start.
Here as an example Johannes and his son Pieter.
Up in the Genealogy (to parents):
click on the link ‘Johannes’ and you will go UP one Generation
(to Johannes’ father and mother);
this way you can surf back to the first known Kolff (Henric Colve).
Down in the Genealogy (to children):
With the children of Johannes you will see:
1. Pieter, follows XVII.
the bold follows XVII is a ’link’
follow it and you will go to the next generation.
Pieter, here, is the next generation.
You will go to more about Pieter, his wife and their children, etc.
From the children of Pieter you can go down to the next Generation by choosing ’follows [XX = generation]’.
If you dont know where to start: use the search function of the website.
You could – for instance – begin to search on the name of your mother or father (don’t use Kolff) and you will come to a page where you can start.
Other relations and connections within the Kolff Family exist (e.g. Kolff marries Kolff). They are linked within the Genealogy.
