STERRINGA

and related familes

 

This is the genealogical homepage of Annemarth Sterringa, welcome.

History
My wish to know the origins of the given names of my grandparents Geert Sterringa and Anna Martha Gonda Winterwerp has led to a truly serious, genealogical research.
For Winterwerp see the link at the bottom of this page.
As for Sterringa, apparently there have been two Sterringa familes:

·         An extinct 16th-C. family of which a young lady Sterringa got married to a young man from Oudeschoot. Their children styled themselves Schotanus à Sterringa.

·         Atse Sterringa (born ca. 1560) and his wife, and their offspring. The present generation of Sterringa's - about eighty at the time - has descended from this couple through the 19th-C. painter Hermanus Tjesses Sterringa and his wife Elske Gerbens Stiemstra.

Sterringa family reunion
After I had also thanks to contributions of my cousins and others drawn up the Sterringa family tree, Lyckle Sterringa organised a family reunion in Gorredijk, where the family had lived from 1735 until 1906. This
family picture was taken during our visit to the Streekmuseum Opsterlân in Gorredijk.
At the occasion of the opening of the exposition about our common forefather "De Opsterlandse kunstschilder [=painter] Hermanus Sterringa en zijn thuisdorp [=hometown] Gorredijk" (
catalogue) held in Gorredijk in the spring of 2004 many of the family met again.
