I have a huge family tree on Bowe's from Epe, Germany in Ancestry.com if anyone is interested but I need to go back a bit further. My tree starts with Johann Gerhard Bowe married to Joanna Knief. I need information on Johann Gerhard Bowe's parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Odelores,

My name is Bart Lenselink and I am living in the Netherlands. My ancestry is almost completely Dutch and most of them lived in the Province of Gelderland, not to far from the border with Germany.

Last week I came into contact with Joyce Banet (born Bowe) and Ryan Renn. There grandfather is George Henry Joseph Bowe (1891-1963), son of John/Johann Bernard Henry/Henrich Bowe (1856-1917) and Anna Margaret Hollkamp/Hollekamp (1859-1919).

As the autosomal DNA results of three descendants of George Bowe match with my DNA, we are trying to find a common ancestor. One possibility is via Johann Gerhard Bowe x Joanna Knief. Another option is via Anna Margaret Holl(e)kamp.

Do you know of other people with the surname Bowe that have done autosomal DNA testing?
Did you find ancestors of Johann Gerhard Bowe x Joanna Knief since 2011?

Regards, Bart Lenselink
