    Hello Lillian, Anya and Benny,

    I want to condolence you with your loss of your mother, Aunt Corry for me. I was searching on the internet and found the message of her death. She has reached a respectable age. I remember her only from her visit to the Netherlands, I don’t know wich year that was. I remember only that she has films about the children, that was very special for us, because in Holland we had hardly family-films. I hope you and your children and your grandchildren are all in good health.

    I was was searching on the internet because I get a phone call from a (for me unknown) family-member, who wants to make a family-tree of the van Haasters.

    Therefore we need some information:
    All full fornames, date of birth, date of death. Date of marriage, full names en birth of the marriage-partner. The names and birth of the childeren, and grandchildren. I hope you want to cooparate and that it is’t too much for you.

    I don’t know if you have already information about our family. I have information over the van haaster-family since the year 1450. I can send you that if you are interested.

    By the way I am Hans, the third son of Theo van Haaster, the eldest brother of your father, for me uncle Piet. I remember his face still very good. I am 65 years old and have 2 sons Martijn 37 years and and Sjoerd 35 .
    Martijn has a son 9 y. and a girl 7 y. Sjoerd has 2 girls, 6 y and 2 years old.
