and so it begins...

Most recently I have been trying to extend the Cole line back. I currently have some FHL film I'm looking at. I knew the Cole family was Koole in the Netherlands, but have found in these records that it was also spelled Kole, Coole, Kool...

Here are the Cole siblings in Grand Rapids in August, 1904, about the time their father died. From left: Cornel 22, Jennie 15, Pete 28, Grace 17, Tunis 24, Mabel 13, Anne 26.

    I am not an expert so I was hoping to ask your help. My Grandmother was Elizabeth DeJong or DeYoung the Daughter of Frank DeJong and Nellie Cole (Koole)is it possible She lived in the Grand Rapids Michigan (West Michigan Area) born in 1898. do you know if she is the daughter of the Nellie Cole (Koole) on your site?
