Hi Erica, before I could start a New Amsterdam project, George Homs, a very serious genealogic researcher, came with the idea, the facts, the links and the propasal voor the new Amsterdam (old New Yoek) project. We decided this to start and he did allready: http://www.geni.com/projects/New-Amsterdam

With him as engine it shall be a success !

Thanks, everyone!

I am looking forward to working more with users on genealogy of the northeastern Caribbean (particularly the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, Haiti, and Cuba) and non-Bostonian New England (emphasis on Connecticut, Vermont, Western Massachusetts, and New Hampshire). Please feel free to contact me if you'd ever like some extra help in those areas.

Hello all - and thanks for the separate welcomes I got over the past few hours!
A few words about myself... I have a Dutch father and a Belgian mother. I grew up in Brussels, where I studied Political Science. I lived a year in Heidelberg (D), and lived for about 12 years in France (in two consecutive periods - Paris and Nice). My wife of nearly 25 years is Portuguese, who was born in Caracas and spent her childhood in Tunis and New York.
All this just to say that the world has no boundaries for me, and I love to work on new challenges.
Professionally, I'm an independent consultant to large IT organizations.
Despite a very international orientation, I'm very keen on working our trees in Holland and Belgium. Simply because that's where my roots are. Before starting with Geni, I knew of only some 20 Homs relatives, since then, I've discovered 150 living relatives - and none of them had a clue that there was this big connection. That's a great experience!
I think Fred has done tremendous work on pulling together the Dutch/Flemish user community - and I think the foundations are there for a lot of interesting activity.
Victar has asked me to help out on France. I'm not French, but I think I won't rest until we can make that a vibrant Geni place too - if only because the French are the best placed to work the sources for so many historical profiles.
Finally, I'm also keen on building the bridges across the Atlantic. Many ancestral lines start/stop with the emigration/immigration. It's only through collaboration that we can fill the holes and bridge the gaps. As many have seen, we've initiated a New Amsterdam project, and I see a lot of enthousiasm building around that.
Thanks again for taking me in - I hope I won't be boring :-)

sjors, veel succes en je kunt op me rekenen, als is het maar voor het dagelijkse kopje koffie met suikerwafeltje... maar je Bossche Bol van vandaag staat nog onaangeroerd, heb je het zo druk gekregen in je nieuwe baan? kus, jMu.

Welcome aboard George, you gave allready a tremendous boost to the international and intercontinental integration. Ga zo voort en gij zult spinazie eten. Let Google translate translate that and never the significance will appear !

George, Welcome Aboard!

Your international experience will be invaluable here on Geni. I add my voice to Victar's for help in French profiles.

George good to have you on the team!

Welcome, George! I took an intensive six-week Dutch course and I'm afraid all I learned was that I have no talent for the language, but maybe you'll inspire me to learn a bit more. :)
