Surname Saturday - Van Driel

One of my father's grandmothers is Maaike van Driel (1859-1936). Her surname, Van Driel, is - like many other family names - derived from a geographical names: Driel is a village near the river Rhine. Many non-related Van Driel families are living in The Netherlands. My Van Driel ancestors lived in Strijen, Holland.

My great-grandmother Maaike van Driel (1859-1936) with her husband Teun Bos and their children.
