: I'm searching the family tree from my fathers grandma, named Lim Sin Njo, also known as Marie Herdle.
: She probably was member of Lim-clan till she married a german man named Herdle. They lived on Java and gave birth to daughter Elisabeth Herdle who married Jan Doedens (duth man) later on.
: It's so difficult to find something 'cause they're all so different cultures. Who can help me. I don't even know wich is a surname Lim Sin or Njo ??????
