I am Michiel Beckschebe, born and raised in Rotterdam and now living in the neighboring municipality of Barendrecht. History has fascinated me from an early age. When I was a child I told everybody I wanted to become an archaeologist ;-). It has become something completely different, but the interest in the past has not diminished.
On this website I publish articles that touch on my family history. If you read this "About me", then you probably came across something that interested you. I like to hear if it was!
In daily life I work as a "marketing intelligence analyst" at an insurance company, I am married and I have two wonderful children. Of course I also try to interest them.
The first pedigree poster is now on the wall :-)!
