"The grapevine was never like this....."
Our Uncle Julius Vloothuis (from Italy) has managed to recreate a lot of the Vloothuis Family history on the "Tribal Pages". There are now more than 500 Vloothuis related entries going back well into the Dutch Golden Century. Somewhere in the early 1700's the trail goes a tad mystic. However, it is likely that "Vloothuis" and "Floothuis" were one and the same family, just with the spelling dependant on whomever wrote the journals in those days. One would say that there must have been a "Vloothuis" tribe member involved in the Amsterdam based VOC or something, sending ships all over the world collecting lots of merchandise. Anyone with a story on this, please put up your hand. For a personal access invitation to the "Tribal Pages" please communicate with Ger Vloothuis on Facebook or E-mail
"Tribal Pages" works on any web browser and now also has a free App for your smartphone. Download it from the AppStore. Then you can upload pictures from those family happenings you want to share right there and then from your smartphone.
