NEW: info about parents, brothers and sisters of Albert
shows some old pictures of the ancestors to Puck (Raymi) van Zuiden,
my mother, our oma/aunt/niece/whatsoever.
The parents of Puck are Albert van Zuiden (Assen, March 26 1883) and Betsy van Praag (Amsterdam, Oct.25 1885). As their grandchildren we nicknamed them "Opi" and "Omi". Below we see them in their youthfull state.

and Roosje van Zuiden
had many brothers and sisters.
from my youth: Frits, his elder brother and Max, a younger brother and
one of his sisters, Riek, who was married to a mr. La Bella, a man who
played an important role in the labour union world before WW II. I heard
mentioned the name of Bernard and below are pictures I found of his
brother Abram ("Bram"), who figures on more pictures in my
Box, and Lize, whom I never heard of († Polen); on the back is
written:" Lize van Zuiden (unmarried sister of "Opi")"
