These pictures of Henricus Marinus Wijnants and Elisabeth Petronella Maria Schmitz - my (Hans) great grandparents - I discovered on the internet at the homepage of Patsy Coldenhoff.
Henricus Marinus was beer trader and later lantern lighter in Den Haag. As little kid I remember him, he died at the age of 89.
Elisabeth Petronella Maria has been woman grocer. She was born in Zutphen and died young at the age of 45.
