Family-legend has it that the Schuurhuis-family originally came from Germany. We have not been able yet to confirm that. Actually we get stuck with Jan Janssen in the village Oudleusen. We know that the name of Schuurhuis / Schüürhuis is quite common in Duitsland in the area just across the border near Hardenberg, so maybe there is some truth in the family-tradition. If you happen to have more data on those German Schuurhuis / Schüürhuis families, we would like to get in contact with you! 
On the next pages you will find: 

The ancestors of Gerrit Jan Schuurhuis, 1879-1957, married Gramsbergen 12-8-1905 to Geertruida van den Berg. I am looking for further information on the following persons and their parents: 

All comments and aditional information will be appreciated. 

Next the descendants of Jan Jansen, died Dalfsen 1805, married to Grietje Marthens , born Dalfsen 1734, died Dalfsen after 1805, daughter of Marten Jans and Jenthe Herms . We have nog been able to trace the ancestors of Jan Jansen, and don't have any clue where he came from. Who knows more about him?

If you are a descendant of Gerrit Jan Schuurhuis (1810-1872), married Stad Ommen 5-15-1832 to  Hermina Hierink, would you please send me a message? I would like this part of the data to become as complete as possible. Maybe we'll be able to trace some old family pictures from the 19th or early 20th century, that also are of interest to others who have the same roots.

The link Photo's brings you to the pages with pictures of members of the old (most 19th century) generations. For some of the pictures we need help to identify the persons. Please have a look before you leave this website! If you recognize somebody, don't hesitate to contact us. Also, we would be delighted to hear from you if you have some other pictures that could be of interest to us!

Private is exclusively fort descendants of Hendrik Jan Schuurhuis (*1844) & Geesje Spoelder (*1846). If this couple belongs to your ancestors, please continue and apply for a password to get access to this part of our website.
