1. Thanks for this! My Dutch ancestors arrived in the USA in the 1850s after their dairy farm near Utrecht was wiped out by a cattle disease twice. Long story short, they reunited with relatives in the Midwest, and the bad luck returned after a promising new start. I feel I know them a little better after viewing this.

    I appreciate your blog; found it via John Michael Greer’s comment section.
