That Venema seems terribly close to Estonian wors "Venemaa", literally meaning "Russia", used in the past from some Hebrews.

Thanks for yr contribution but you may rest assured that Venema is a very Dutch surname. Nothing Russian about it :-)

Beste Peter,

Mijns inziens is Lemkuhl geen verbastering van Leemkuil, want in mijn gegevens heb ik ook NL Lehmkuhl die van oorsprong uit Duitsland komen(Hannover)

Peter said...

Beste dijori,

ik neem onmiddellijk aan dat je gelijk hebt maar het één sluit het ander niet uit. De vermelding die nu in mijn lijst staat heb ik uit zeer betrouwbare bron.
Dank voor je reactie.

I am curious about the surname, Middag or Midag...which changed over the years to become Meddaugh. They were early settlers in New York State/New Amsterdam. One of the given names was Joris. Thanks for any input!

Peter said...


I am almost certain this is a very Dutch surname. The meaning of the word 'middag' is 'afternoon'. Also the words for morning, evening and night have been used for this purpose. Even weekday surnames still exist.
The largest Dutch genealogical database shows close to 3,500 hits for 'Middag'.
Hope this clarifies things a bit.

hi there im looking for any information about my dutch family surname is van asten came from haarlem cheers

Peter said...

The surname Van Asten is not uncommon in the Netherlands. So to avoid that I have to look for the famous needle in the haystack, can you give me more data such as
- the first names of yr ancestors and their spouses
- dates/places of their birth, marriage
- when did they leave here etc.
Fyi the largest genealogical data base here shows over 26,000 hits for your name...
