This volume records for the first time a fully documented family history and genealogy of the primary leader of Dutch immigration to western Michigan, Albertus C. Van Raalte, and his wife, Christina de Moen.Drawing on previously compiled genealogical information, archival records, and family letters and photographs, the authors have worked diligently to set the record straight regarding the Van Raaltes' ancestors and descendants, as well as to provide a document that future historians and genealogists can build on. Beginning with a brief biographical sketch of their lives, the book then traces Albertus and Christina's ancestors and tells the story of each of their seven children who lived to adulthood and their respective descendants. Also included is an account of what happened to the Van Raatle papers and homestead.Fully documented and filled with photographs of the Van Raalte family and homestead, Albertus and Christina will be a welcome source for anyone interested in the story of this pioneering family or in the history of western Michigan.
