Andre van Amstel

Telling stories at the dining table is the best way to bring history alive to our children

Projects on GENI are the way to connect people to these stories so I created and collaborated on many projects about the Dutch history of the oldest families (van Amstel, van Egmont, van Velzen, van Woerden, van Wassenaar.....) and where they lived.

Anette Guldager Boye

I am a historian by profession and have a masters degree in history from the University of Southern Denmark.

What I like about history and genealogy is the hunt for information. To dig out information about the people of the past, thus making them more real.
