  1. Neeltje,

    Zou jij mij in contact kunnen brengen met de heer Gorden Cadden? Misschien heeft u zijn emailadres? (zie bovenstaand)

    Groeten!

    Jeroen

  2. Neeltje Twiss.
    Will be giving a talk on Richard Twiss, in Norwich on 14 April.
    He was born in Rotterdam 1747. His grandfather Dr. Twiss settled in Holland, as did his father Francis Twiss. Have you traced your family tree?
    (historical research only).

    1. Gorden,

      I’ve traced down the first generations of the family Twiss in Holland. Even planning a trip to Suffolk this summer to go even further back in time and do some more (field)research. It would be great if you could get back in touch. Very curious about your talk on R. Twiss.
      I am finishing a book about the families roots and history. When finished I’ll sent you a (translated) version.

      sincerely,

      Jeroen Twiss
