The Stark-family

In 1999 I made my first homepage about the genealogy of the island Texel. Soon I was contacted by Elizabeth Connolly from the USA, a descendant of Willem Stark (1864-1932). Her detailed questions motivated me to take a proper look at the available data about this family in genealogical sources. Now it is time to publish the results of my research. Please contact me if you have any additions or questions.

The surname Stark was first used in Texel by the children and grandchildren of Jan Alberts, born around 1625. Jan Alberts had at least one brother and three sisters: Willem, Martje, Alijd and Dirkje. The children of these siblings did not use the surname Stark, so the genealogy Stark starts with Jan Alberts.

The family lived mainly in Oosterend. They were members of the Dutch Reformed Church of Oosterend. All the baptisms and weddings took place there, unless I mentioned another church. I want to thank everyone who sent me information about this family, especially: Gil Anema, Elisabeth Connolly, Jan Griek, Frans Lok, Phil Stark, Wil Braam and Debra Stimpson.
