Cold Case: do you recognize these Frisian emigrants?

Tresoar, the Regional Historical Center for the province of Friesland, has a new Cold Case project. They are looking for the names of the people in two movies created in 1932 and 1936. The movies were show emigrants who came back to Friesland for Friezendei [Frisians day]. Since the late nineteenth century, thousands of people from Friesland emigrated, mostly to the United States. Big reunions took place in 1932 and 1936 (and again in 2000).

Some sections of the 1936 movie can be viewed in the call for comments from the Cold Case team below. Also check out the 1932 movie at the Archieven.nl website.

Do you recognize anybody? Please contact the Tresoar Cold Case team on Facebook or leave a comment below.
