Information of (possible) living people have been suppressed for privacy reasons.
Descendants after 1811 are now often described in WieWasWie and online archives of Rotterdam and Delft.
Special older facts are derived from the rich websites and of Cock Rijerkerk.
Mrs. L. van Santen-Bergmaier earlier composed the descendancy, see link below.
A few elder generations (H. Zijderveld), births in Culemborg (book of deceased Mr. Hermen Beekhuizen, 'Jan Reynders van Beeckhuisen, zijn voorouders en nageslacht', Bilthoven 1973, 254 p.), births in Beesd (Hetty Roks, book Beekhuizen) and some recent facts are derived from it.
The website of R.M. Houben describes some persons.
Earlier also websites of Jan Burggraaf, family Exalto on, "Hilversumse en Gooische families" and of Hans Oskam and Dennis Sleeuwenhoek.
Information too was received from contact with family-members, among them Susan Kay, with her friend genealogist Christine Liava'a, in New-Zealand.
