Of the Kolff Family Members about 25% live outside The Netherlands. This table shows you where these descendants have established themselves. Not included are international movements within one or two generations, nor expatriate movements, both of which occur frequently. This table only shows the longer term movements. Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) have been left out as this territory is considered part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands up to the shift of souvereignty.
Genealogical continuation of the family outside The Netherlands is indicated in blue   In case the red/brown line continues, next to the blue line, there are family members within The Netherlands as well as abroad

* Branch A, Guyana: Unfortunately the Genealogy is not complete: we know almost nothing about the descendants (more about this).
* Branch CBCE (Kolff-Breymann) is currently only represented in Switzerland and Germany (more about CBCE).
All other branches heve members outside The Netherlands, but they do not qualify to be mentioned here (more than two generations).
