My parents came to Canada in the early 1900’s with their respective parents and families. My father-Anton Sulkers was born in Zaandam. His father was Hermanus Sulkers and his mother was Maria Johanna Vriens. My mother, Adriana Bijl was born in Krimpen a/d IJssel. Her parents were Evelytje Vogelezang and David Bijl and his father was Andries Bijl. Anyone with a possible connection?

Write to me please.

Thank you.

The message said… Write to me please…

So I wrote a message.

Hello,

Did you know Herm Sulkers, the son of Peter Sulkers, son of Hermanus, was a sailor on the Canadian destroyer Athabaskan.
I posted a lot of articles on this subject.

Now at least I know Anton was not Antonia… He’s Evelyn Howard’s father.

I wonder if I will get a reply.

See you.
