Hello,  my  name  is  John Janmaat  and  you  see  me  here  in  a  rare  moment  of  relaxation! 

I  was  born  in  Holland,  but  since  1968  I  have  been  living  in  Adelaide,  Australia.

Since 1964  I  have  been  researching  the  "Janmaat  Family  Tree".   Progress so far has been painfully slow, but after all these years there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Since marrying my wife (a Thiele) I  have  also  been researching  the genealogy and  history of the Thiele Family of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills. This has been a totally different, but equally as fascinating a journey.

 Since  1836  many  Thiele  families  have  entered  South  Australia  and  other  parts  of  Australia.

Although my research  to date has focused  on the  Thiele  Family  of  Hahndorf    I  have  also  collected  a  lot  of  information  about other  Thiele  families. 

All in all I have quite a bit of interesting information and also photos.

I  intend  to  publish  all this data on this web site  as  I  find  the  time.
