My name is Ann Marie Borgers. I am currently working on my father's side of the family, Borgers. My great grandfather, Berend Borgers, immigrated to the United States from the Netherlands with his wife, Hermina Van Beek along with their five children in October 1892 through Ellis Island, headed for Alton Iowa.
Berend had one brother, Reinder Borgers. Reinder was born around 1854 in Ede, Gelderland, Netherlands. He married Hermina Gijsberta van Ark 15 December 1883. They had 7 children: Gerdina Borgers Reinder Borgers Geeritje Borgers Teunisje Borgers Gradus Borgers Alberta Borgers Berendina Borgers
I am looking for more information on Reinder's family, to fill in the blanks so to speak, to find their decendents.
