About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.

April 30 Z is for Zwolle


What might you well ask is a Zwolle?!  Zwolle is the last place listed in my atlas, so I thought that I would use it.

Zwolle is a city in the Netherlands founded around 800A.D.  Zwolle was granted city rights on the 31 August 1230. Its population, in 2014 was 123, 507.  Citizens of Zwolle are called Bluefingers, (Blauwvingers). It is also a hub and the national highway network. The first train arrived in Zwolle in  1864.

Zwolle offers  a variety of museums, outdoor activities, historical buildings and many pubs and restaurants.  Somewhere different to visit.

Bye for now,
