The impact of the Netherlands on Holland's history and heritage is well known. However, many people in West Michigan can actually trace their roots not to the Netherlands, but to Germany. This lineage begins in Bentheim, a German county that borders and geographically extends into the Netherlands, adjacent to the Dutch provinces of Overijssel and Drenthe. Come discover the Bentheimers: their life style, faith, powerful motivations for emigration to America, and their unique influence on this area.  (616) 796-3329
