In Holland you have the official names, as they are in the registers:

born 22 december 1937 in Haarlemmerliede(Holland).
|The first three years of my life I lived with my uncle Willem and aunt Lena, because my mother died at my birth. In 1941 my father remarried and the family was reunited again in the village Lisse. I went to primary school there and later from 12 to 18 to a high school in Leiden. Later I became a teacher in primary school.|
|During about five years I was a teacher in primary school in Sassenheim, but in 1966 I succeeded for the first part of my study in mathematics and I became a teacher in Kerkdriel. The same year I married Tineke O., a bulbgrowersdaughter in Lisse. We moved to our first house in Kerkdriel. In 'sHertogenbosch, near Kerkdriel, our both sons, Bas (1967) and Merijn (1970), were born. In 1971 I finished my studies and had my degree in math. I became a lektor on the School for Forestry and Landreclamation in Arnhem (later "Larenstein" in Velp). We moved from Kerkdriel to Rheden.|
|My beloved Tineke died in 1998 of Multiple Sclerosis, the latter years I was an early pensionist to care for her.|
|In 1999 I met the danish Gerda on the internet and since 2000 we live together in Randers, Danmark.|
