Surname Saturday

This is my first time joining many of you for Surname Saturday. Hopefully I can give anyone out there with Dutch roots some websites to visit that will help with your research. VandenEynden was my maiden name. (Then I got married and became a Jones!) After a while, though, I kind of missed that unique last name. My 2nd Great-Grandfather,  Petrus Josephus (Joseph Peter), came to the USA from the Netherlands, along with his brothers, Picter (Peter), and Petrus Marinus (Morris). I've narrowed the area they immigrated from down to the Noord-Brabant region, I just don't know what city or province yet. But I'm working on it! They all settled in St Bernard, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio.
