Tjark Huls(e?)Is this an Ostfriesian name? Tjark reminds me of some of my Frisian ancestors' names: Tjamme, Tjerk, etc.
That is it, Miriam. They apparently crossed out the "e" at the end, which was an error. It is an Ostfriesen name. Several of the examples here are Ostfriesen as that is where all of my maternal ancestors are from. And as they used to say:Eala frya Fresena! Eala frya Fresena!Michael
Tjark Huls - the Ostfrisen names are a little easier because I have seen examples before, now watch me guess wrong next time. Diana
Tjark Huls was the name of my grandmother's father. He was born in Weisens, Ostfriesland, Germany. His name was pronounced to sound like "shark".
