PM from Tracey

Hi Cherilyn,
Do you have any ideas where else to find him, I would like to go back
on his line. I know he was born In Holland, Broek in Waterland,
would that be a clue?

Waterland is in North Holland (Noord-Holland), above Amsterdam. Most of the Kramers seem to have come from around there. My dad was born in South Holland and all his lot are from there - Gerrit is definitely a Dutch name. I would not have placed Kramer there, but there are/were lots of them.

Unfortunately there are several Gerrit Kramers born or married around the right time in that area (on familysearch). Not sure how you can proceed without his mum's name. I don't think the early SA marriage would have it. :-(

May also be spelled Geert and surname may appear as Cramer. Good luck.
