i'm looking for relatives from johannes blanken , born 1929 13th of november in velsen [netherlands]
he immigraded to australia in 1968 , arrived in melbourne. thats all i know.
before he left the netherlands he was divorced , he,s a father of a twin boys , one off them is my father in law [ we dont have contact with him anymore]
the reason why i seek is out of curiosity , did he found love again and got married , does my husbund have uncles or aunts? was he realy a bad man? i cant believe al those weird stories wheve been told about him. [ if a man does'nt care then he wont say goodbey does he?]
funny fact....johannes and my grandfather where classmates , there is a picture on schoolbank.nl
thats the only picture i,ve found from him. my brother in law looks a lot like his grandfather as a child and so does his son.
johannes has 5 grandchildren and 8 greatgrandchildren in the netherlands.
hoping for news :D
sorry for my bad gramma!!
greetings from holland
Johannes passed away in 2013 (unfortunately I have not been able to find a death notice):
Springvale botanical cemetery (Victoria)
Date of Birth: 13 November 1929
Date of Death: 11 March 2013
Date of Service: 14 March 2013
Funeral Director: Heritage & Heritage Funerals
Burial Type: Cremated (The cremated remains have been collected)
The only other possible reference to Johannes Blanken was in the 1980 electoral roll and there were 3 people listed for the same address in Ferntree Gully (VIC):
Johannes Blanken – spray painter
Miranda Johanna Blanken - typist
A Jeanne Blanken is buried in Lilydale Memorial Park (VIC)
Date of Birth: 18 Apr 1921
Date of Death: 15 Jun 2008
Service Date: 20 Jun 2008
Her date of birth was close to Johannes’, so (if she is the same person) I would assume that she could have been his partner.
