My Bevers Genealogy Download Index

The downloads listed below are compiled by me. I can only vouch for the accuracy of the information to the extent of its accuracy as presented by original contributors. I can, however, vouch for the contributors. The information contained herein would not be possible but for the hard work of the contributors, to whom I'm extremely grateful.

I have three full genealogy files available for download. One is a rich text file that can be opened with most word processor programs. It is an output report of my database. The PAF file is the database, using the LDS Personal Ancestral File program. To view this database, you need the PAF program, which can be obtained for free at (registration required). The "ged" file is a GEDCOM file that some folks use as a generic genealogy database, which can be imported into many of the genealogy database programs available today.

The information is compiled from a few sources. The Atlantic side of things is from my translation of a remarkably detailed genealogy provided to me by Mr. Hans van de Wielen, who is a genealogist with the Nistelrode Historical Society, also known as Heemkundekring Nistelvorst (HKK). He is an expert on our family. The HKK has a website,, which I would encourage everyone to explore.

Meanwhile, the transition to life in America was made easy for me by a cousin of my father, Jim Bevers, and my aunt, Sandra Bevers. Along parallel paths, they were compiling information in the 1980's and 1990's, which was graciously presented to most members of my immediate family. I simply pulled it all together, and updated it with my immediate family information.

As well, over the years, I've been able to "advance and correct" thanks to a information drawn from a number of genealogists in The Netherlands, including Willem Keeris, Henk Verhoeven, Willem Baerendregt, and others. I wish to express my gratitude to all these and anyone else who helped to make this document possible.
