Hi Wiersma's,
We are working really hard to get a full geneology of all the Wiersma Family. Most started in Friesland NL, some stayed and some came to the US.
If you know parents, grand-parents and/or Great grandparents names and any applicable dates (birth, death, etc.) please let me know so I can begin to close the gaps.
Once we get these, we will begin getting current generations also.
Thanks

Fred Kramer commented on person Claes Elenbaas :
 New Elenbaas found.
Until now, the oldest known ancestor was our Cornelis Claesz (around 1615 to 1620 had at least three children, who Elenbaas called later).
Now yesterday I found in the archives of the orphans' court of an Cornelis Jansz Poortvliet Elenbaas, who just before 1614 is deceased.
Unfortunately I have no mention of a wife or children found, but it would be theoretically the grandfather of our oldest father.
Pure speculation, because I did this not proof.
Els Elenbaas

Some internet records seem to lead to a possible Jewish connection or that Cleas may have been a Rabbi. I question this since Cornelius was a Sheriff? Note: Later Johanna "Jane" ROOKUS was stated to be a full Jew in several sources.
