31 W 10th St

Much is known about Albertus Van Raalte, immigrant and one of the founders of the Dutch settlement that would become Holland, MI. But what do we know about his family? His parents, siblings, in-laws? What happened to his children and how many descendants are there now? Why did he leave his comfortable life in the Netherlands to journey to a wilderness in West Michigan? Join Sara Simmons, Van Raalte’s great-great granddaughter in a discussion of her genealogical journey to discover more about her famous ancestor and his descendants.
