Descendants of Sijmon Cornelisz ZWAAN & Maartje GARMENTS

This Descendant Journal contains all the descendants of Sijmon Cornelisz ZWAAN (1715-1803) and Maartje GARMENTS that I have been able to identify to-date. They were married in Schagerbrug, de Zijpe, Noord-Holland in 1736, possibly in the church depicted below. I have been able to idenrify two of their children, Jacob Sijmonsz ZWAAN, our direct ancestor, and Cornelis Sijmonsz ZWAAN. Both were born in de Zijpe. Sijmon and Maartjee's  grandsdaughter Maartje Jacobs ZWAAN (1774-1822) is the subject of the Pedigree Chart below.
