Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem Rene Renat Roggeman
My grandfather came from Oultre, Belgium through Ellis Island. I believe he traveled from Ninove. I believe he went to Canada first and lived in The province of Ontario & served in the military out of Chatham-Kent as a private in WWI. He came to Detroit, Michigan at some point & then settled in Sandusky, Ohio, married & had 10 children, one of which was my mother, Liliah. I am looking for any information on my grandfather & his family in Belgium. He was born in Oultre, Belgium on 8/26/1893. Thank you.

I was very happy to find your website! My grandfather - Rene Cobbaert - was born in Denderhautem on Oct 21, 1890. I don't believe he is the same Rene as the one on your website as the US Census records indicate he immigrated to the US in 1911. I will send you some documents via email soon and hope you might be able to help me find birth records and more information about him and his family.

Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem Al Smith
I found Al Smith from Belgium (not a relative) while assisting (the LDS) with transcribing USA World War I Draft Cards from 1916. (Project still underway.)

I guess Al Smith probably isnt his original name. But when I couldnt make out his Belgian birth city, I stumbled on your website.

The card shows that he was born June 25 1890 and that he had *not* applied for US citizenship, intending to remain resident alien status as a Belgian citizen. It also shows that he was a Foundry worker residing in Stockton California.

Due to the Americanised name this may not be of use to anyone, but since you have the site I thought Id post.

Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem Adrianus Van Den Berghe (1679)

(writing in English as this seems to be the main language of the site)

Found your site through Geneanet, as I was looking for the ancestors of Joannes Baptiste Schouppe en Joanna Catharina De Dobbeleer (themselves my grand-grand-etc-parents). Very happy to have found here many more generations of ancestors from the Denderhoutem region.

I can mention an additional child from the Schouppe - De Deddobeleer family, besides Joannes Baptista (1801) en Josephus (1803): Joanna Coleta (1807). She died in Aalst in 1855. Her death certificate indicates that the Schouppe-De Dobbeleer family had moved to Aalst, probably around 1805. This is where the Schouppe-De Dobbeleer spouses died, both before 1855.
Further down, Joanna Coleta Schouppe's (natural) daughter, Ludovica Carlotta Schouppe, married Jean Franois Vermeire and from there through Louis Vermeire, to Fernand Vermeire, down to my mother Marie-Claire Vermeire.

Hartelijk bedankt voor jullie inspanningen!

reeds geruime tijd werk ik aan een project " Was Laki een Ijslandse sluipmoordenaar".

In 1783 barste de vulkaan Laki uit en verspreide een gele nevele over grote delen van Europa. Nu gaat er verhalen de ronde dat de mensen bij bosjes het loodje legden.
De nige manier om dat uit tepluizen is overlijdens tellen. Tot nu het ik 342200 akten geteld over 495 parochies verspreid over Nederland Belgie en Noord- Frankrijk.

Een telling is zo kompleet als ze groot is. Mijn vraag is het mogelijk data van de overlijdens in de periode 1778-1788 er uit te filteren.Uw website is voor de gewone onderzoeker een prachtig hulpmiddel, maar voor mijn werk een beetje onhandig.Vandaar deze vraag.
Dank bijvoorbaat

Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem Gillis Van Landuyt (16e eeuw)

proficiat voor jullie fantastische site, waar ik al veel nuttige informatie heb gevonden.
Mijn moeder is een Van Landuyt, en ik ben dus heel genteresseerd in die familie. Ik vind wel een verschil met uw gegevens:
Van Landuyt, Livinus
Gender: Male
Birth : 26 December 1738 in Belgie, O.-Vl., Denderhoutem
Death : 28 April 1817 in Belgie, O.-Vl., Denderhoutem

Father: Van Landuyt, Petrus
Mother: Rombaut, Josina

dit klopt, maar die man was volgens zijn overlijdensakte, vrijgezel toen hij stierf.
Hij is dus niet de echtgenoot van Peeternelle Hoebeke. Trouwens wanneer zij sterft, in 1805 is zij reeds weduwe.
Dit is volgens mijn opzoekingswerk de goede Livinus:
Livinus VAN LANDUYT (Denderhoutem 22.1.1711- + 9.5.1778),
& 18.1.1742 Joanna V.D.Steen , D.8.10.1724-+30.1.1760)
&& ( ? ts 1760/65 ) Peeternelle HOEBEKE (Haaltert 23.10.1733 - Denderhoutem +17.1.1805).
Hij zou de zoon zijn van Jan Van Landuyt en Josina De Schuttere.

Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem -
I know of a person from Denderhoutem that emigrated to the USA. Unfortunately I only have her first name. In the USA a woman seems to lose her maiden name for good. Her name is Elvire and she married Theophiel Hugaert from Kaprijke. He was born in 1890 and Elvire about 1895 in Denderhoutem. They emigrated to Detroit and later lived in Macomb. They had two children: Gilbert, born 1921 and Yvonne, born 1924. Would you be so kind to see if you can identify this Elvire and reveal her last name? Great site!

Earliest ancestors from Denderhoutem Dierik Adriaens, +-1550
Fantastic site !
This site allowed me to track back my ancestors both paternal and maternal (De Pauw, earliest ancestor, also +-1550).
There are some names missing of my father's generation and my father's mother died in july 1934, not june. (The wrong date was obviously copied from the devotional card). But this means nothing in comparison to the wealth of information that I found here ! Thank you so very much !

From Denderhoutem
Not a problem. No reason for the !!!. I knew that your grandfather and grandmother arrived in the USA on March 13, 1920 so it was allways possible we had your father wrong as being born Jul 10th, 1920 in Denderhoutem. This is now corrected on my PC but i only post the data once a year in January so until then....

I am very interested in the study and research of the origins of Willelm van der Haegen.
He was one of the first settlers from Flandres to Azores in the XV century.
I've found out your website when I was searching for his name.
Maybe the ancestors of "yours" van der Haegen and the ancestors of "my" van der Haegen were related? Who knows?
If you think you can help me to meet Willelm anestry, please e-mail me.

My best regards.

Thanks for the wealth of information on this site!!!!

Is there any possibility of getting a .ged file?

My grandmother was Maria Petronilla Schieticatte (Mary Schietecatte) daughter of Franciscus Schietecatte and Maria Josepha De Vuyst. She immigrated to the US in 1903.

I recently meet with Maurice Van Coillie, (son of Maria Regina Schietecatte), my mother's cousin and he provided info he has gathered from trips to Belgium. What you have seems much more extensive. I would greatly appreciate any and all electronic info you could provide.

Thank you for the below posting. I'm well aware of this family. And for the benefit of other interested parties that might come accross this way, here's how:

i have a book (in Dutch) titled : "Vlaamse Immigranten in California. Onderzoek naar de herkomst en het leven van de vroege Vlaamse pioneers in Orange County, California" by F.V. Goeman. Translated : "Flemish immigrants in California. Research into the origins and life of the early Flemish pioneers in Orange County, California".
The book also exists in an English version as it was made on behalf of the descendants of the immigrants and of the "Rancho Los Alamitos Associates".
Your family, who changed their name from Schiettecatte to Scott, is featured in that book along with many other families from Flanders that ended up in Orange County.

From High Wycombe England
It was very interesting looking at the Denderhoutem names, but my father Clement Armand De Gelas, his brother Cyrille De Gelas and their mother Clementine De Gelas are not there. My grandfather Philemon is there, as is my aunts Gabrielle and Maria-Honorina, and uncle Constantinus-Richardus. There is also a sister of my father's who does not appear to be there, but she died when she was young and I don't know her name. All I know is that my father said she was always singing! Is there any reason why some members of the family are missing? (My father was born in Denderhoutem on 05.06.11, and died in High Wycombe on 08.09.94. Thank you for your help.
