Sjoerd van der Woude - Door to Door selling

Sjoerd van der Woude -National Militia

At age 20 Sjoerd Tammes entered militairy service as a "remplaçant" (substitute).
Earning a fair sum as a replacement for the son of a wealthy family.
This practice was eliminated the following year by a new law
which instituted "personal military duty".
1897 was the last year of "conscription by lottery" dating
back to executive orders by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1811.


Sjoerd Tammes van der Woude
was born on Nov. 8, 1877 in Drogeham.
He died on Nov. 21, 1953 in Naaldwijk at age 76.

Below is a copy of his birth certificate
It was filed by his grandfather
Sjoerd Andries Boersma
Grocer in Drogeham
in whose house he was born.
His father Tamme was away with the Skûtsje.

Something unusual took place.
Sjoerd Tammes was the firstborn son.
Tradition held that this son would be named after
the father's father.
It should have been "Wobbe Tammes".
Sjoerd Andries got an opportunity and took it.
Translation: winkelier = grocer
