Next in our series of Frisian Landverhuizer posts is 1854.  Yes, we are posting them out of order :) 1854 was an interesting year.  A group of Mennonite emigrants from the town of Balk, Gaasterland (with surnames such as Smid, Symensma, Visser, and Oor) left Friesland and settled in Elkhart, Indiana.  This was also the year that Sake Hofstra emigrated.  His son, William Sake Hofstra, was the namesake of Hofstra University in New York.

Church records of baptisms, marriages, memberships, deaths and burials. Marriage and burial taxes as well as civil births, marriages, and deaths before the advent of Napoleonic Civil Registration in 1811 are also included. Not all places or denominations are represented. The collection contains some indexes. Most of the records do not go beyond 1811.

The main target of this release is improving stability and fixing mostly minor bugs. Besides that we now have support for multipage TIF images, the ability to drop files on top of Transcript and better translation support

We are excited to be working on a new series of pages - Friesland Landverhuizers 1848-1877!  We're adding and connecting wiki pages for the people that appear as emigrants from Friesland for each of these years.  The first in our series of posts is 1848: http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Friesland_Landverhuizers_1848.

For all of our research (which is restricted to non-living people), we create wiki pages that can be accessed and added to by others.  That means YOU can add details to these pages such as photos, dates/places, family stories, etc. Come join us as we document the emigrants from Friesland and discover where they migrated to.

Want to know what each column heading means?  Head over to http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Emigrants_from_Friesland for a table of translations.
