|The Doelman-Barendregt family with my grandmother at the right.|
Based on the activities of the photographer in Rotterdam, the date of death of Huibertje and the estimated age of Antje, the picture must have been made around 1899
One of the things that was very dear to her, was a Bible printed in 1870.
I believe it belonged to her mother Huibertje Aartje Barendregt. On one of the cover pages my grandmother wrote a few words in remembrance of her mother.
|In remembrance of my beloved Mother Huibertje Aardje Barendregt Doelman. Departed 10 April 1901 in Rotterdam|
My grandma had yet another Bible with many remarks about her family written in it. But that is something for a future post.
