The History of the Dorland Family

It would seem that my family name has a rich history. All Dorlands can be traced back to two brothers migrating from the Nethelands to America. Before that the family had escaped persecution in France (as huguenots) and settled down in the Netherlands. What happened after that is a long story … and apparently, some not-so-close-relatives have done a lot of research and put it all in a book. Not sure it’s a bestseller, but somewhat interesting for me, even if I’m not defined by my ancestry. (Thanks to my English relatives for the heads up.)
