I hope that somebody can help me.....
2 months ago i found out that my grandmother had a brother.
Nobody in the family knows of any photos of him.
My grandmothers brother died in captivity at Amahei on Ceram but
he was an accountant at a sugerfactory in Soemberbaroe and joined
the Landstorm.
His name was Gerrit Kappert 1895-1943.
I am looking for photos at KNIL soldiers from that region and all other information that might be out there.

Have you seen this website:


I've found it the best place to start in researching the KNIL. There is precious little else out there in English, it seems.
