My father's partner in the 1930's Dutch Institute for Worker Education, was named Rudolf Kuyper (died 1943, professor of sociology at Utrecht University). I wonder if Rudolf was related to Abraham in any way?


Jacob L. Mey, III
son of Jacob Louis Mey, II (1900-1966)

Please note that the family tree is not very clear.

I can present some additional information about the oldest daughter of Guillaume Kuyper and Henriette Storm van Leeuwen if you like.

Hi H. Muytjens

Thanks for your comment - if you click on the image it should be larger and hopefully a little more clear.

Please do let me know what info you have on the eldest daughter - e-mail me if that's more convenient at (replace the at with @ and no gaps)

As a greatgrandson of Abraham I have a complete and detailed familytree since 1705 up to today.
I found this blog by accident resaerching Johanna Schaaij. Maybe we should keep in contact.
