The Gort families in Friesland
Research in the archives in Leeuwarden and on the Ryksargyf - Friesland web site identified three distinct family clusters and some single occurrences (some of the latter came from one of the branches in Groningen and later moved on to Drenthe). Of these 3 clusters, one came from the province of Overijssel and will be identified in the Roelof Roelofs Gort branch of the family. The other 2, namely the descendants of Johannes Willems Gort and Louw Jans Gort require more study for the period prior to 1800 to determine if links exist between them and other Gort branches.
