Surf the Extended Genealogy

Here as an example Johannes and his son Pieter.

Up in the Genealogy (to parents):
link naar staak  XVI. Johannes:
click on the link 'Johannes' and you will go UP one Generation
(to Johannes' father and mother);
this way you can surf back to the first known Kolff (Henric Colve).

Down in the Genealogy (to children):
With the children of Johannes you will see:
link naar staak  1. Pieter, follows XVII.
the bold follows XVII is a ’link’
follow it and you will go to the next generation.

Pieter, here, is the next generation.

You will go to more about Pieter, his wife and their children, etc.
From the children of Pieter you can go down to the next Generation by choosing ’follows [XX = generation]’.

Now first read (at right) how you can surf within the Genealogy.
After that you can use the instructions, below, if you don't know where to start.
How to Start?
If you don't know where to start:
use Search within the Genealogy as a starting point.

You could - for instance - begin to search on the name of your mother or father (don't use Kolff) and you will come to a page where you can start.
