In 1999, a book was published in Dutch written by Johan Oldenkamp in which he described the ancestors and progeny of Pieter Vrieling and his wife Hillechien, who were his grant-grantparents. Pieter and Hillechien both had the surname of Vrieling, as their grandfathers on both their fatherís side were brothers.

About a centrury earlier, three Dutch brothers of this Pieter Vrieling emigrated from the Netherlands to the United States of America (USA), together with their wives and children. Their names were Geert, Jans, and Lambertus. Jans arrived in 1895. Geert came in 1903. And Lambertus emigrated in 1904. In the USA, Geert changed his name into George, Jans became John, and Lambertus became Lambert.

George, John, and Lambert belonged to a large Dutch family. They had alongside Pieter four more brothers, three sisters, and three half-brothers. Some branches of this large Vrieling family also ended up in Canada and Australia.

George Vrieling had 9 children, John Vrieling had 5, and Lambert Vrieling had 3. In total, they had at least 56 grandchildren, as mentioned in this book, together with their great-grandchildren and even their great-great-grandchildren. However, the overview offered in this book is still incomplete. Additional information is very much welcome!
