  1. Jodi, welcome to blogging; enjoyed visiting Braiding Trees.

  2. Hi Jodi:
    I learned about your blog via Jana’s Genealogy and Family History Blog.
    Reading it, it struck me that the DeBolt, DeWitt, Borstelman, Dehart and Horn surnames sound very Dutch. Being Dutch myself, I was very much interested. I also have a blog with many genealogical subjects. One of my posts shows a survey of foreign genealogical blogs/sites showing Dutch origin surnames. The URL is The idea is to try and establish contacts between people who have an interest in the same surname. There are numerous cases in The Netherlands where people emigrated centuries ago without leaving a trace in Dutch archives. With my blog I try to bring Dutch and foreign (mainly US/CAN) genealogists together.
    Therefore, I like to have your permission to show your site in my a.m. blog.
    I look forward to your reaction!
    Kind regards,
    PS In particular Borstelman seems to be a fairly old name!

    • Hi Peter! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I’d be honored to be included in your blog. I’d love to make connections to others researching those surnames. Someday I’ll make the leap back to their home countries. Fingers crossed!
