Hello Pieke, I hope you can read english. A fifth cousin alerted me to your website.† I see similar names here but you must be a distant cousin. The farthest I can go back in my Van Der Schaaf family tree is Pytter Annes baptized in Wjelsyrup in 2-6-1649. His son Douwe Pytters baptized 5-9-1658 and married to Aeght Syoerdts in Baeijum 2-12-1683.
May I ask where did you get the Van Der Schaaf family crest? I did not know there was one.
I do not speak Frisian. I am trying to translate the family tree that my father, now deceased left me which is all written in Old Frisian. It is difficult.
I hope you are in good health. I hope to hear from you.
