Descendants of persons with the name Hoogeveen

The name of the first Hoogeveen comes from the village of Hoogeveen (in the Netherlands in the province of Drente). Hendrik Jans Bremer moved from Hoogeveen to Beilen and from that moment on he called himself Hoogeveen. Hendrik Jans Bremer (became Hendrik Jans Hoogeveen) is the elder ancestor.

May 2002 Dirk Hoogeveen from Canada (no descendant of Hendrik Jans Bremer) sent me an email and said that he had done a lot of investigations (already in the seventies) and asked if I was interested in the results of his investigations. You bet I was.
