To identify every Begeman individual to a branch. And hopefully connect them all together through our ancestors. By first gathering a list of all our ancestors, and then contacting European Begeman's in hopes of discovering links to their families, and records dating farther back. I would also like to introduce European Begeman's to their U.S. relitavies. My project is not a money making scheme (I am disappointed with the entities who have monetized genealogical data and are profiting from others work and wish to circumvent that), the info I have gathered (you have shared) is here for all to see and enjoy. My motivation is to find my own ancestors, and help others do the same. These pages contain the information that has been provided by participants who wish to share in the search for our ancestors. I have identified 18 different branches (to date). Enjoy!
This project is viewer supported. And is a tribute to those who have shared data on their branch. That means for this project to continue to grow and for everyone to receive more benefit from it, any info you could provide me with any data on your branch that is relevant that can be shared.
It is best if your Data includes full names, birth date, and place. (marriage, death, etc.)
Data on living B's need contain only full name, and state of residence, I do not wish to interfere with anyone's privacy.
EMail me at firstname.lastname@example.org please ensure the subject line contains "Begeman"(n) so it doesn't get filtered as spam.

Lack of updates - As you can tell I have invested a lot of time and energy in this site. In '05 I lost interest in maintaining it when it seemed there was not much outside interest AND because of the pain it caused me when I came to the realization that the Begemann's should have been included in my info gathering from the beginning. Excluding them was a huge mistake and I regret all the missed opportunities and great info that I overlooked or dismissed prior to that realization. I am done kicking myself about this and look forward to embracing the Begemann's as we are all family. What do double letters in a surname mean?
I have found new tools to help me with web authoring, and with
renewed vigor, look to stimulate new activity and interest in this
project. I welcome any input on how I can make this site better
serve the family and especially bring in the double N's. It would
be a near impossible task to go back and start over on the double
N's. There is no way I can retrace all my steps through the years
that brought forth the information I have gathered. I hope that
your interest and any information you can share can be added to
make this site more interesting to all the families.
