Sargonnas June 2024 Giveaway

Post by Sargonnas »

I'm still busy updating (and cleaning out) my collection so here's another giveaway.

The stamps on this page are all MH/MUH. It is a mix of Surinam, Dutch Antilles with an incomplete series of Anguilla and three MS from Russia, Albania and South Korea. As a bonus I've added some cinderella stamps of Lundy.
IMG_20240602_0001.jpg
How can you win this mix of stamps?

Very simple, another guess the location game. This time it has to do with my own ancestors. I was able to track one of them back to 1560, more then 450 years ago. It seems my forefathers never really had a "travelling " vibe as for all those centuries they stuck to the province of South Holland.

Now my question is: Where was this great, great, GREAT grandfather, Arie Pietersz Tom, born?

As said, we are searching in South Holland, here's a map for assistance:


provincie-zuid-holland-(1280x1024).png
The 30/30 rule applies here.

Each participant can guess once a day. Competition runs until either the place is guessed or we reach the 12th of June. The one closest by with their guess will then win.

Good luck and have fun.

Thank you all for participating in this second tour of South Holland. The exact location of my ancestor has not been guessed.

The winner is Elton_Goa_India who came closest with Papendrecht, which is only 6,65 km from:

Lekkerkerk.

Arie Pietersz Tom was born there in 1560.

After Arie my ancestors moved to Gouderak, Nieuwerkerk a/d IJssel, Rijswijk and Voorburg to ultimately end up in Leidschendam.

Congrats to Elton. Your prize will be on it's way shortly.

Thanks again to everyone for the fun. Stay tuned for my next giveaway.
