Welcome to the van Wessel family resource website.
We've kept it simple and clean, I'm sure you came
here for a reason ...
What's this website
Well it is largely about sharing
information about the van Wessel family. So if
your surname is van Wessel you may well
find something of interest here. Because the name
van Wessel is so unique we can almost guarantee
that sooner or later you will find a link to an
existing tree. Genealogical research is time consuming
and can also be very expensive. Many people are
not willing to share this information, but with
this website we hope to encourage sharing of information
so that we can all benefit from what others have
already done and try to get this puzzle together.
Where do I go?
If you're new to this site we suggest to read
the short introduction
which will give you some general facts about the
bits we know. After that you can explore the site
using the menu on the left-hand site which is
self-explanatory. If you have been here before
you may wish to read what's
new or go straight to our latest version of
database. Other areas of interest are the
the hamlet of Wessel,
the coats of
arms and the curious snippets in tangents.
Also look out for questions and loose-ends (coming
can I help?
We are always keen
to receive feedback from you. If you have any
information about the van Wessel family in the

Happy browsing ... Cornelis
