PREFACE

The idea to write an English version of "Descendanten; de nalatenschap van Jan Hendrik" came from one of his descendants. He was on Bonaire for the first time with his family to celebrate Thanksgiving. He discovered my family tree on the website Familysearch.com and sent me a message:
“I see that you have found one of my ancestors, Cathalina Jarig. Can you please let me know how you found her so that I can look for more information?”
That is how we came into contact.
My interest in the history of my family name began in 1998 while I was on Bonaire. A cousin from Curaçao gave me a piece of paper on which a few family names were written. One of them was ‘Inias’; a name unknown and curious to me.
Back on Bonaire in 2008, I was given the domain name of a website of which many people were using to find their origins. At home in the Netherlands I conducted an online search on the name “Inias” and sure enough, I found it. Inias, Anthony and the others.
The website compiler assembled the family tree in no time, making my search easier; thanks John!
Then the questions started rising in my mind. Who were they? How did they get to Bonaire and what was their life like? How did they acquire properties?
The story is linked to the circumstances of that time. It was not a happy time, but it made my detour in the past, despite all the misery, a clear and pleasant trip.
Personally, I do not keep myself to much busy with the past. It’s gone, but clarity can sometimes be refreshing. In this case, to preserve a bit of the family history for interested future generations. The book starts with a narrative about some events that are of significance for the story.
Although I have carefully dealt with the information found, this does not guarantee completeness. ×
