Welcome to my Family History

About this Geneology website


    My name is Edward Pieper and this is my personal family history page.
    I started this ancestry research in 2015 with the marriage license of my grandparents Pieper-Broersma.
    Although I have no offspring of my own, my grand parents on both sides had many childeren.
    Leaving me with alot of ants, uncles, nieces and cousins. All protected by the GDPR-Law and Dutch AVG DPA-Law.
    You will not find any info about them here.

    So what does this page contain?

    This page contains all information I could find on my research since 2015 with all sub-pages of every familyname I came across a direct line of ancestry. Every Familyname sub-page starts with the oldest known direct ancestor holding that name and all offspring, marriages and direct descendants keeping this name. The section Family Trees gives some history and links found on ancestral research.

Coat of Arms

Crests of Family Pieper-v.d.Post

©2019 Drawing by Edward Pieper

Note: This is personal non-official, non-registered Coat of Arms. I draw myself and it does not apply to the complete Pieper family.
It contains all crests of my grand-parent familynames:

  • Upper left corner: The Crest of the German Pieper Family
  • Uper right corner: The Crest of van der Post Family
  • Lower left corner: The Crest of the Broersma Family
  • Lower right corner: The Crest of van Cuijk Family
  • Middle: The Crest of the City of Dordrecht, The Netherlands

The red and blue leafs symbolize Loyalty and Military Strength that mainly credited to historic inheritance line of Pieper serving the army, and my grandfather v.d. Post that died in the Dutch Militairy. The Black Eagle is the symbol of Prussia where the family name Pieper originated from.
The crest of the City of Dordrecht symbolizes the unity between the families in marriage that took place in this city, and in birth of me and my brother.
