11 Generations of Pilons 
in the Netherlands

In searching for Pilons we turn over old, moisture-yellowed pages and we discover  names like Abraham, derived from the Old Testament as well as Daniel, Jeremiah and Sarah. Genealogical research on this has been done by P.J. Ritsema (deceased).  This research was then extended and updated by P.R. van den Berg and presented in a book at a Dutch Pilon reunion at Loppersum in 1997.

Abraham's descendants living in the United States were present that day. They had migrated, like other Pilons. Many other Dutch Pilons had migrated to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. (See the Pilon Chat section).

Below we present, thanks to our Dutch partner Jan Pilon, the 11 generations of  his daughter Annelies.
