Hi. Hope you are well. My name is Melody Eernisse and see we are fifth cousins. Can you tell me how and if you have any info on our shared family ? Thank you.

Hi Melody: I've done a lot of work on the Eernissee genealogy, going back to the Netherlands. Our ancestors were brothers (Abram--my side; Izaak--your side). Here's what I have on Izaak, which is in his profile on Geni:
Izaak and Maria, along with their 4 children still at home, and their other children who had married, left the Netherlands to immigrate into the United States, joining the extended Eernisse family. They arrived in New York in 1847.

Rochester city directories indicate that in the 1860's he was working as a "laborer" and living at 3 McDonald Avenue.
