The data for this family tree comes largely from two sources, both drawn up by P.Landman.
The first source is a family tree compiled on October 28, 1978.
The second source concerns the pedigree (GEN 1080) that is in the reading room library of the Ryksargyf in Leeuwarden.
Here and there Marcel Schroor has added data from his own research (Frysk Ryksargyf / Internet).
From the above, it appears that the family name Schroor from this lineage from 1850 is only continued in Beetsterzwaag. Relation with other Friesian Schroor families has not been found and seems unlikely for now.
