The family tree for the period 1800-1950 has 12 still growing branches with 791 family members (excluding spouses). Every person currently living with the Van Bohe(e)men family name belongs to one of these 12 branches.
Beside there are 8 extinct branches with 30 family members. These branches have no family members born after 1900. The reason is that the male members of earlier generations die young, remain unmarried or have a childless marriage.
Still growing family branches
The fathers being the beginnings of the still growing branches are mentioned in the following scheme.
All fathers are, roughly speaking, born in the period 1800-1820. Four of them are brothers. This is also the case twice with two other fathers.
It is also worth mentioning that the first three fathers are Protestant and the other fathers are Roman Catholics.
At the top of the scheme is mentioned Johannes Barendse van Boheemen (1809-1879). He can be found in the family tree section for the period 1650-1800 as a sixth generation son of Cornelis Jansz. van Bohemen (with number VIb.1). The other fathers mentioned in the scheme are great-grandsons of Cornelis Dirksz. van Bohemen.
Johannes Barendse and a few of his descendants work as sack porter in Dordrecht. That is why the family branch starting with Johannes Barendse has been labeled as the Dordrecht sack porter’s branch. The other family branches also have such a distinctive title. These titles only cover the cargo to a limited extent.
The different titles vary widely. They illustrate well that around 1850 the majority of the family works outside agriculture. Only the brothers Petrus Paulus, Nicolaas, Paulus and Cornelis are still in the footsteps of their family founder.
The right-hand side of the scheme shows for each branch the number of generations and family members included. For example, the family branch of Johannes Barendse van Bohemen counts 4 generations with 85 family members (excluding spouses).

Extinct family branches
The family tree for the period 1850-1950 also has a number of dead-end branches.
Persons not yet placed
For the period 1800-1950, no persons found with the family name Van Bohe(e)men do not belong to the above-mentioned family branches.
The personal data are largely derived from published birth, marriage and death deeds (Civil Registers). In addition, use was made of family cards found in the Population Registers.
For family members born after 1900, a lot of data was also taken from family advertising in regional newspapers. The remaining gaps were filled in as well as possible on basis of verbal information from near family members. These gaps mainly concern marriages after 1930 and deaths after 1960. These data can not yet be checked with data from Civil Registers and for that reason might not be entirely correct. The missing data are marked with a ?-sign.
For privacy reasons, there are on this website no data for persons who may still be alive. They are referred to terms as Son, Daughter, Husband or Wife.
